Bar

“This is a stylish pub, with a cosy Urchin and a nautical theme, with dark grey walls, lengths of rope, and dim lighting. The seafood is some of the best catch from Brighton’s coastline, all freshly cooked in the kitchen. The menu is simple, and written on blackboards in the pub. You’ll find a good range of fish on the menu such as crab cakes, scallops, prawns, and lobster. ”

“Good place for a night of intimate music BUT, maybe one only for the gritty, real music lovers out there. Drinks in plastic cups, questionable toilets, little space at times... Not for everyone!”
