Expert review of The Greys

This friendly, down-to-earth pub offers hearty food, good beer and live music.

As well as being a cosy spot for a pint, this pub serves great evening meals and a cracking Sunday lunch. It’s not in the centre, but it’s well worth hunting down.

Food and drink: 

Roz Batty, the current chef, has previously worked at Claridge’s in London and Due South in Brighton; at The Greys, she’s on a mission to ensure that everything on the menu is made from scratch using fresh, ethically sourced ingredients - right down to the mint for the sauce that’s served with the roast leg of lamb on Sundays. Popular dishes include fried fillet of bream and a scrumptious nut roast. As well as Harvey’s bitter, the bar serves a great range of Belgian beers.

Ambience: 

Plain on the outside and semi-rustic on the inside, it’s an unpretentious kind of place. On Monday evenings, when the kitchen is closed, it hosts live music and quizzes.

Service: 

It's friendly and accommodating.

Location: 

It's off the tourist trail in Hanover, a residential district on a hill north east of central Brighton.

Price advice: 

Main courses cost a reasonable £10-£15, starters and desserts are £2-£6.
