It's blue now.

It's an OK pub, but probably has more negatives than positives for me. The pub appears to be two rooms knocked together, with a bar counter straddling both, but the dividing wall comes very close to the bar. And that is where the cask pumps are. So if anyone sits there, it's really hard to see the pump clips.

The place has a nice vibe, but it's also quite dingy. I found it hard to see while in there. A mostly trendy middle aged clientèle on my Sunday afternoon visit. They seem to have a problem with ventilation because when I went to close the door because my daughter and I were sitting in a draught, she insisted that, even though it was cold, the door should be kept open. We moved to a different table.

The only food offered is pizza at £7.50 , or some hot chilli olives. I like that they offer food, and I prefer that a place specialise in one thing which they can make quickly and easily rather than fail to offer anything because they expect to have to offer a full menu. So full credit for that. But the pizzas are small. And they can come burnt or underdone (we had both, because we ordered again, not realising how small they would be).

Our barmaid was not very friendly or helpful. And there was a smell from the toilets.

Plus points is that they sell Harveys Bitter, plus a guest beer. And they have a large selection of board games, and while they don't offer any food for children, they do allow children into the pub.

The place is a mix of good and bad. It's not quite good enough for me to ever want to go back. But it's not quite bad enough for me to refuse to enter it if there is nothing else in the area.

We visited on Sunday when they were holding their 8th birthday party. The street outside was closed and local bands were playing. A definite local party atmosphere with just a few fellow tourists present. The pub was extremely busy but the service was prompt and South Downs Ruskin's Ram and Long Man Best were two excellent pints of the several offered during what seemed to be a weekend beer festival.

Tried this out for refreshments before going to a concert at the Old Market. What a refreshing surprise! Reminded me more of a London pub than Brighton. Service was excellent and the pizza was good value. I'd give it full marks.

Lovely, friendly pub with a nice atmosphere, and usually very good beer. Definitely more of a pub than a bar...

It's a studenty type bar, a bit dark. Internet facility, posters and that sort of thing. Popped in here midweek, the staff are attentive. Not much else to say really, it's pretty ordinary.
