If you are looking for ales, yummy pub grub and a pleasant walk back in time to what a pub used to be go here!!!! Constantly fantastic, have been visiting for 25years. Just great. Heard they are doing an extension, really hope they don't make it another bistro pub and keep all the old tins and signs on the walls.... More

This pub has a great selection on beers and spirits, staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Food was top notch I had the homemade pie with beautiful mash and my partner had the seafood platter which was equally lovely. Highly recommend when in the area!! Check the tins as well full of lots of silly little notes.. first class pub!

Popped into one of my favourite Brighton pubs for a beer and Fish and chips. The beer was as always good. However, the chef must have changed because instead of the usual great fish I got overcooked over battered haddock with poor mushy peas. The best bit was the tartar sauce. Will drink here again but not eat.

Proper pub, good selection of ales, food great with limited but very varied menu, Staff are pleasant. Good local crowd even on a very cold Thursday lunchtime.

Went to one of my fave pubs yesterday with my Son and had lunch. He had seafood platter which was reasonably ok although a bit pricey I thought at twelve pounds, I had the fish finger sandwich which was dried up bits of fish finger with barely and fish in it, hard uneatable bread, the lady behind the bar offered...

The title of the review is not a bad thing. This feels like a proper old fashioned pub where old men drink and bring their dogs. It should probably be in Yorkshire to be honest. Great selection of beers and lovely atmosphere.

Always try to get here whenever in Brighton. Great atmosphere, great range of beers, friendly staff and great food. Despite it being very popular and busy, never have to wait too long to get served and the Blue Cheese & Bacon fries are amazing!!! Lovely pub!!!

We were staying in Brighton for new year, and had a wander near our hotel for a couple of drinks, we found the basket makers and with the music it was a great atmosphere, we ended up staying in here most of the night ,the locals were friendly, the pub was packed, but the bar staff kept things running smoothly,...
