Sunday lunchtime and only a couple of other customers (three by the time I left). I like the unspoilt interior of this pub but found the welcome rather lacking on this occasion.

First visit here for years. Older age profile of customers than many Brighton houses. The beer prices were low.

By now, Ian, Martin and I had had a few. Actually, they'd had quite a few. We discussed what's on our "drunk play list" of songs. Apparently it's not acceptable to have, "Oh what a night".

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

Excellent back street corner local in Baker Street, until recently in the hands of a long-time experienced landlord, making it one of a dying breed days. Two roomed, with a main room with bar serving up to five Harveys beers and a smaller snug type room to the side. Since changed hands.

We have visited this pub 4 times, seen 6 different beers and tried 4 of them.
