I suspect this is a particularly gay-friendly Brighton pub, given by some of the actions we witnessed at the bar. But it's a Shepherd Neame pub with a gaudy interior, which is tucked away up an alley (no pun intended), off a leafy square. The ales on our visit were Spitfire, Spitfire Gold & Master Brew. Worthy of a visit, if only to admire the furnishings.

Very pleasant pub, hard to find. Nice decor. Only the one beer (Shepherd Neame Spitfire) but the one I had was kept well.

It's a boutique hotel-style pub, with the atmosphere and clientele typical of a fair few in Brighton.

Beers and food are good though.

Recommended, but not for the insular or uptight.

Bizarre but likeable pub, from outside it looks like a standard-issue old-fashioned local boozer, once you step through the door however, you will find yourself in a pub quite unlike any you have been in before. The decor is a riot of Pink and Gold striped wallpaper, with leopard skin seating and various other completely contrasting colour schemes in other nooks of the building. It has a piano and unlike in many pubs where this would be little more than an ornament that occasionally serves as a focal point for a drunken sing-song, this actually comes complete with a painist playing selections of instrumental scores from vintage Hollywood movies and Broadway stage shows. The beer selection is good (it's a Shepherd's Neme pub) and for the lager drinkers the lesser-spotted Oranjeboom and Asahi are available on draught, all at par prices for the area. The Roast Dinner looked lovely and was well priced. The service was friendly and welcoming. The toilets however need to be seen to be believed with their weird kitsch wall of mirrored tiles on the way in and pitch black paint with loud pink door frames and window ledges. Odd but the world is probably a much better place for having pubs that defy convention and challenge your expectations of what a pub can and should be. Worth a look if you are passing.
