This place really needs to pull it's socks up if my recent visit was typical of how the place is run. On arrival our group was informed that the majority of lager taps were out of use, supposedly due to "frozen pipes" and that coke was also unavailable, leaving little choice of drink. Things didn't get much better when using the overpriced pool tables, which needed attention on three or four occasions after the cue ball kept getting stuck inside them, not to mention the fact that none seem to be level.

Nice quiet pub, but very very expensive!

Blackthorn/Fosters about 3.50 and pool is 1.50 a game.

Came here to watch the World Cup game Portugal v Brazil a couple of Friday afternoons back, during a day out in Brighton. The bar was pretty empty but perhaps understandably so due to the hot sunny weather, meaning people had better things to do with their time (and a wise choice given how the game turned out!)

Plenty of screens to enjoy the action and also a choice of different types of seating. I sat on a stool at the table in front of the big projection screen, but positioned myself so there was also a good view of the screen behind the right hand side of the bar.

Sound and vision quality were very good.

Beer was fine and nicely chilled, the taste elevated to nectar status after 3 hours walking round in the hot sunshine!

Obviously this was an afternoon visit therefore unable to verify any of the other reviews of evenings spent there, and would have been interesting to see how this place rated with a lot more punters in (e.g. an England game), but in terms of serving the purpose of my going in there i.e. watching the game with a couple of cold beers on a weekday afternoon, this was spot on.

Reasonable place to watch sport on big screens - comfortable seats and friendly bar staff. Food OK.

Went to The Smugglers to watch the Champions League Final since it's refurb as a sports bar. Difficult to get a drink due to management letting someone reserve the far end of the bar.

Loads of screens, food looked good, poor beer selection when you could get one. Give a miss on big sports events not worth it.
