“This is difficult to write because my hands are trapped in Pringles tubes and I'm typing with my nose. Great pub, great staff and don't judge me the Pringles were on offer.”

“This pub is amazing, referred to as my home away from home!! This weekend the family flew over and joined me and my friends for my 40th birthday celebration, we had a private function in the back area of the pub, the staff could not do enough for us, the food and drink, as always, were spot on, so good in fact that we had to go back and continue the celebrations the next day!! I may live a few miles the other side of Brighton but this will always be 'my local'.”

“It's my favourite pub ever and I've worked managing bars, restaurants and clubs for 10 years. Paddy has an uncanny ability to hire only lovely, genuine people, the service is always great and the atmosphere is unrivalled. When I'm in Brighton it is always the first and last place I go”
