AVOID THIS PUB !! We went in The Bear Pub on Lewes Road in Brighton recently as it had been quite a few years since our last visit but this was truly a horrible expererience..The current landlady is the most foul mouthed, rude and arrogant person we have ever met and should not be allowed to work in the hospitality or pub industry..Staff spend most of the time smoking outside and only seem to welcome their own "down and out" types similar to themselves..I would not bother with the food either as it looked awful and probably full of fag ash..The good news is that theres some good pubs further down the road such as The Gladstone and The Martha Gun and these seem to be run properly and professionally plus very welcoming with good food..

Went in after a long Sunday, noticed the pub was under new management and thought I would give it a go. After waiting to be served, the pint tasted 'off' and I raised this with the barmaid; she told me that no one else had complained. This might have been the case however both my friend and I thought that the pint wasn't right, due to the barmaid's attitude I just decided to stomach it and move on. While drinking the pint the landlady entered the bar area and told a customer to "F*** off" and called him a "C**t" there was no provocation I could see and in my eyes no need for this language from the staff of a pub in the late afternoon. For the poor customer service and swearing bar staff, I think this is one to avoid. A shame as it was a nice little watering hole before.

Of its area (i.e. a bit rough from time to time; studenty). Three unimaginative cask beers - Harveys Best, Doom Bar and Hobgoblin - seem to be permanent fixtures.

The Gladstone down the road is a better option.
