The Aeronaut is well worth a visit! A large pub with several side rooms and attractions - including a couple of table tennis tables - and a large beer garden. The Laines brewery is behind the bar and was in use during our visit..

5 beers on yesterday all at £3 a pint. Great staff and service although it wasn't over busy.

The Aeronaut is a reasonably new brew pub with Laines ales brewed on the premises. There was a limited selection on our visit - The Stinger, Best, IPA & ESB. Westons Wyld Wood was the real cider. The attached circus room is a fairly unique attraction. We could see in. But there was no event during our Good Friday afternoon visit. In fact, the pub was fairly quiet overall.

The Redback closed some while ago. It briefly became the Acton Arms but for some reason that failed before it got properly started. Which is a bit of a shame because it showed promise.

It's now "The Aeronaut" Opened about a week ago (around the 5th Nov) and it also shows promise. Service was a bit chaotic (barman had trouble persuading the computer to take a food order) but I assume that will settle. The beers seem to be from Laines, a Brighton microbrewery but I think the plan is to have a microbrewery on site. There are certainly tanks and such behind the bar. On Saturday the Best was OK but tasted slightly of something I didn't recognise and didn't appreciate. Nothing wrong, just not to my taste. There was a golden ale I liked rather more.

A quick note to say that The former Redback will be opening at the end of July under the new name, The Acton Arms.
