Food and drink
The menu changes regularly and has a truly seasonal feel. It generally includes posh sandwiches, soup made with woodland ingredients and modest portions of excellent smoked, braised, roasted or baked meat and fish with imaginative selections of vegetables. The bar serves Harvey’s bitter, organic wine and premium spirits.
This rather plain-looking Victorian pub has been given a gentle makeover: the sign features arty green sprigs, the interior is simple and uncluttered and there’s a deck to one side that’s popular with families.
It's warm and hospitable.
It's in a residential area of Hove, well off the tourist trail.
It’s a little pricier than most Brighton pubs, but worth it. Light lunches are £3-10, main courses including traditional Sunday roasts are £10-14.
