A Proper Pub

We’re a proper pub in the heart of Rottingdean, Brighton’s own proper village. A quick hop on the bus to leave the stresses of City life behind. Settle in and enjoy some of the nicer things that life has to offer.

Dogs welcome

Kids welcome (til 8)

Everywhere claims to be a gin specialist these days, but we were ahead of the curve. And, unlike so many places, we don't have endless shelves of indistinguishable London Drys. Each of our forty-or-so gins belongs on our shelves because it's distinctly different, unusual, or rare. Our carefully written menu is presented by flavour-type, and introduces you to the gin with suggested pairings with our varied mixers and garnishes. And, of course, our team are always happy to help and advise.

Getting Here

Getting here is really easy!

We're about an hour-or-so's lovely walk along the seashore from the centre of Brighton, and remember we're (very) dog friendly! 

We're a short bus ride (about 12 minutes from North St on a good day) with bus stops right outside for nos. 12, 14, 27, 47 & 52 (local services) and 2 (scenic but slow)

If you really must drive, then there's a public carpark immediately outside that's free after 6, or a long-stay carpark a couple of minutes walk up the hill
