Summary

Its simple, shellfish-centric menu may be “relatively unsophisticated”, but this relaxed corner gastroboozer (points for the handsome rope-hung pendant lights) “never puts a foot wrong”, with appealing al fresco seating and craft beers (from the new basement micro-brewery) among its assets.

Summary

“Shellfish cooked simply and with care” helps draw crowds to this “lively, friendly” three-year-old boozer, which boasts an “amazing variety” of craft beers, plus Brighton Gin (courtesy of the basement tenant). “It can get noisy, but there are tables outside”.

Summary

“Behind the Tesco Superstore”, and atop the Brighton Gin distillery, this “unpretentious” pub is “by far Brighton’s best for simple seafood impeccably presented” from a blackboard menu (plus “over a hundred different craft beers”); the grub comes in “generous” portions, and at an “unbelievably reasonable” cost to boot.

Summary

“Hidden down a backstreet” – atop the Brighton Gin distillery – this new venue from the teams behind Small Batch and Velo Café is a “first for Hove”: a pub specialising in “craft beers galore” (over 100) and “cracking” seafood. It’s a “bold concept” but “very well executed” and “excellent value”.
