The Smugglers, Brighton

Came here to watch the World Cup game Portugal v Brazil a couple of Friday afternoons back, during a day out in Brighton. The bar was pretty empty but perhaps understandably so due to the hot sunny weather, meaning people had better things to do with their time (and a wise choice given how the game turned out!)

Plenty of screens to enjoy the action and also a choice of different types of seating. I sat on a stool at the table in front of the big projection screen, but positioned myself so there was also a good view of the screen behind the right hand side of the bar.

Sound and vision quality were very good.

Beer was fine and nicely chilled, the taste elevated to nectar status after 3 hours walking round in the hot sunshine!

Obviously this was an afternoon visit therefore unable to verify any of the other reviews of evenings spent there, and would have been interesting to see how this place rated with a lot more punters in (e.g. an England game), but in terms of serving the purpose of my going in there i.e. watching the game with a couple of cold beers on a weekday afternoon, this was spot on.

The Old Garage, Southfields

This is a good place to go for Sunday lunch, in fact the food's good all the time, with a wide selection & very reasonable prices. Drinks are (inevitably) more expensive than the adjacent "Grid", but worth the little bit extra for a decent, ice-cold pint. There have been a few mentions about the South Africans who drink here... all I'll say is that the post on 17/10/03 from "anon" (I wonder why?), particularly the words "your bunch", fairly neatly sums up the "this is how we are, if you don't like it then f**k off" attitude encountered, not on every single visit, but often enough to make you slightly reluctant to go in.... on one occasion, one of my friends was called a c**t for the heinous crime of wearing a t-shirt with a (totally non-offensive) logo. No doubt I'll automatically be smeared as anti-SA, but at least I'm not telling people where to go whilst hiding behind the gutless "anon" tag.
