Evening visit. The kitchen has gone said a board outside. Apparently the space is now used as a green room for visiting bands. One may bring in food from local establishments or order a delivery now instead.

Mid evening visit. Heaving and even more so with a queue to go upstairs for a Brighton Festival gig.

Late evening visit. First time ever I have seen no one sitting out on the front pavement seats. Music quiz inside in full swing with questions too obscure for me by being of this century!

Website.

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 19 times, seen 49 different beers and tried 13 of them.
