This charming old pub is steeped in history and character, making it the perfect venue for your private event. If you can throw a party for it – we’ve done it!

Our friendly staff has decades of experience at hosting parties and they are on hand to help you plan and then enjoy your day or night, whatever the occasion may be. Function hire is available for up to 250 guests, making this one of Brighton & Hove’s largest and most comfortable venues with indoor & outdoor space for any party. Our huge Beer Garden comes complete with the biggest BBQ on the south coast and privately heated booths for those colder months. Inside, you will find open fires, cosy seating areas that will feel like a home from home, and plenty of space for live music or a DJ and dance floor, so you can dance the night away like nobody’s watching!
