Never been in at 5pm on a June Summer evening but I have been in before 12 AM and before 4 PM. And the same applies. Never enough staff, slow service and young persons not really sure what they are doing. Having said that there was 6 real ales on when i visited.. They all looked good..
I was the designated driver so cannot comment . However two beer drinkers and two lager drinkers did not complain.

I went in this "pub" last summer !

It was a lovely hot summer afternoon in June, and at 5pm there was
ONE barperson.

Suffice it to say there was a queue nearly out the door.

The queue was organised by the customers not the staff.

I wonder if Tim the Aussie ever goes in here wearing a false beard to get some
customer feedback.

Went there last Wednesday to try their Chicken Club menu. Wish I had not bothered. Went the chicken breast came, tit was with an apology for a salad. You would not serve the lettuce to a tortoise! As for atmosphere, it was non-existent.
Suggest try Yates or the other Spoons Pub - The Post & Telegraph.
They appear to have changed the appearance of the upper level to make it look like a student canteen. At least the Post & Telegraph in North Street looks like a traditional pub

Light, airy and fairly spacious. The service is bog standard and just about everything else about the place is as well. There are definitely much more inspired pubs near by that are better in most respects. I personally much prefer the other main Weatherspoons in Brighton centre, The Post and Telegraph being a traditionalist.
