Why we love it

A locals boozer for hardened ale drinkers. This old skool tavern may be quaint in size but it's vast in its beery offerings. Old tobacco tins filled with punters messages line the walls, tankards hang from the bar and you’ll usually find a pooch or two among red velvet topped wooden stools. This Fuller’s owned pub have more than eight taps with a few staple Fuller’s brews as you’d expect and moreish seasonal changers. Butcombe, George Gale & Co, Little Beer Corporation and Longman Brewery (voted best beer in the world 2017) have all made guest appearances here. Basketmakers really do stock some of the best quality beers in Brighton and also boast over 100 whiskies. They were voted best Brighton’s best pub from 2014-2016 and entertain some damn fine pub grub.
