user reviews of the North Laine, Brighton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Large pub offering both its own beers and quite a few of others. Called in on a Friday early evening, so the place had a nice buzz with the after work crowd and people out for the night. Their 4.9% Ripper “session” pale ale was very nice, if a bit of a misnomer at that strength. They also had a Jamaican stout on which I really enjoyed. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Came here briefly prior to a football match at Brighton back in October. Many websites said it opened at 11am. But lo and behold, it was remained closed until midday. The place is quite large and with no other customers, it was devoid of atmosphere. North Laine ales on were Single Hop, Amber, D'Oubloon, Bestest Bitter, Hop Bomb & Golden Laine. Not a dark beer in sight and no real cider either. Not to my liking.

On my way to football in Lewes for a Wednesday night game so I decided to go via Brighton to do four 2015 GBG pub ticks.

First stop just after 2pm was this large brew pub on the edge of the Lanes. Home to the Laine Brewing company the pub is extremely spacious with lots of benches and tables spread across ground and mezzanine level.

Around a 3rd of the tables were taken with a mix of diners and drinkers.

5 of the in house brews were on the 8 hand pumps. I chose a pint of Amber Sky @ 3.7%, quite hoppy but drinkable.

The decoration is quite minimal with a quantity of large industrial lights hanging above the bar and in the of the large open plan rooms. The mash tuns are visible behind the bar but there was no brewing going on during my visit.

Old soul music played gently in the background. As I expected the majority of the clientele were very much hipster locals.

A mention must be given to the vintage Crown Hotel sign that hangs in the bar, its a cracker.

A very well put together brewery tap and a great place to start my ticking.

I had an excellent pint of porter but the kitchen had closed when it was not yet late on a Sunday evening and it's simply too big. The beers are tasty but of the 'craft' variety so expect them to be cold and varying levels of fizzy. Nowt wrong with that and I'd certainly return again.

Have frequented this a few times. Used to be The Gloucester nightclub. Brews it own selection of good real ale, though Laines Best is produced en mass for sale across Brighton in Horsham.

Far too big to be a pub. Nice enough staff. Food okay but a tad pricey.

Was struck on my first visit on a Saturday afternoon how many kids/prams/pushchairs were in there and an abundance of 30/40 something Guardian readers drinking fair trade wine talking about buy-to-let mortgages etc.

Worth a visit though.
