Third pub with Ian and Martin. Managed to get a table at the back on the raised area. Lots of pine. Ian started trying all kinds of beers from a menu. Martin soon followed suit

Website.

The pub is found in Brighton, East Sussex, BN1 3FG.

Located in Upper North Street on the corner of Regent Hill. 9 handpumps sported in this quite small intimate one bar house. It has a raised area in one corner and this now leads to an upstairs lounge which was added in 2014. Opened in summer 2012 as the first out of London Craft Beer Company house. Major refurbishment in 2018 added multiple sports TV screens.

We have visited this pub 10 times, seen 57 different beers and tried 12 of them.
