The pub has recently gained great identity. The manageress is very welcoming and polite and so are he rest of the bar staff. I had sunday roast last sunday and was told they had a new chef in the kitchen.. the roast was fantastic, i had slow roast belly pork which i have to say was cooked to perfection and my misses had the nutroast which she said was great.. they also were advertising a new lunch and dinner menu which looks great so will be back in the week... another added bonus is the two flat screens for the football... all in all i think they have pulled there socks up.. very good, thanks.... will be back..

Having enjoyed the afternoon pleasures of the BIB & TUCKER up the hill; I stopped off here on my trott back to Brighton's sea front.
A small,1930'/40's bar that could pass for a students union bar. Clean, pleasant couple of female students serving.
I bought a pint of Black Sheep and sat on the welcoming benches outside to enjoy the evening setting rays.
It was a pint of Vinegar!! Certainly a pub worth giving the bum steer to in future.

A decent pub. The patrons range from students, locals and even a family or two at the weekend. At night its usually quite busy and has a lively buzz around it, probably created by the many students frequenting it on week nights. The interior is good standard pub wooden theme. They have a decent selection of drinks (they have heineken on tap, which is always a plus for me) and do selected discounts for students (nus card needed). The menu is relatively varied though not expansive, the sunday roasts a quite good and of a decent size.

The cornerstone isnt anything special but is a decent solid pub, wether your looking to have a few drinks or to grab some food with friends.

Its redbrick exterior gives the impression of middle-agedness, but inside it's a student-bar. The drinks are, well, drinks. (I imagine that, in the age before pubs were turned from family-businesses into managed establishments, a website like this would have been able to go into detail about how the pub-brewed beers were served but, of course, there was no web then and, anyway, this is now.) Undergraduates like the Sunday-roasts. The furnishing-theme is marshmallow.
