The pub is found in Brighton, East Sussex, BN1 4ED.

A pub that is as near to being underneath Brighton railway station as one can get in Trafalgar Street (No 48). Transforms from office workers at lunchtimes to students and music enthusiasts in the evening. Out front seated drinking area. A multi-room Victorian pub which has 6 handpumps on the bar counter. For a long time it has been a music venue but more latterly has offered a good range of real ales too.

We have visited this pub 14 times, seen 41 different beers and tried 11 of them.
