The North Laine in Brighton

Quite simply a huge pub situated on the main A23 route in and out of town and on the edge of the North Laines area. The main attraction is the on site Laines Brewery with the brewing equipment prominent behind the bar, twelve handpumps shared between three banks offered seven Laine beers, one guest plus a cider. Laine Amber Sky, Brighton Brau, Hooker, Crazy 8, Laines Best and India Pale Ale, Brighton Bier West Pier Pale Ale and Thatchers Heritage cider. Jugs used by default. Wines and cocktails on a chalkboard.
The room is vaguely staple shaped if you like, bar along the back wall of the bar area, benches at distressed stained wood tables plus a few barrels for vertical drinking. Décor includes a rather dramatic wooden bird, a kingfisher I think, hanging over the main bar area, a hanging sign from The Crown Hotel (Mansfield Brewery Co), there is an old brass cash register on a shelf, a statuette on a wall of an angel(I think), and a painting of a squadron of gulls wheeling around in flight. Potted ferns on the window cills, lots of exposed brickwork, stacked barrels in a corner, the front foyer area has a large montage of B&W photos celebrating beer!
The atmosphere wasn't bad late afternoon but before the offices kicked out despite the size of the place but I bet it gets very loud and echoing when full. Bluesy/jazzy soundtrack, I didn't notice a TV but there may be one or more here and there.
Food served, main meals and bar snacks (beer bites), many meals matched with beer suggestions and not gastro style, real old fashioned food, corned beef hash, lamb hot pot, pie of the day with mash, veg and "lashings" of gravy. All in the £9-£10 range which doesn't break the bank.
9 pint mini kegs to take away from £15.95, quiz night on a Wednesday. Outdoor terrace if you prefer but facing the A23.
This is not your traditional old two room boozer by any imagination but it is a very good pub serving a large range of beers of different types in clean and spacious surroundings. I enjoyed my stay here very much.

Fox & Hounds Hotel in Blackburn
This is a large roadside pub on a busy junction just over the road from Blackburn Rover's Ewood Park stadium. The pub is supposedly for home supporters only on match days, but I managed to get in by covering my colours and keeping a low profile. The pub still has something of a multiple room layout, with the entrance taking you directly into the main bar which is carpeted and has half panelled walls with floral wallpaper above. Bench and low stool seating runs in a L-shape around the room, following the shape of the servery which has a most impressive canopy decorated with scenes of the eponymous fox and hounds. There were several TV screens dotted around the room, all rather inexplicably showing The One Show to a disinterested pre-match crowd. Over on the right hand side there are two seating areas located in what essentially amount to separate rooms, even if they have been opened out a little. The rear one had a cosy feel to it, with quarry stone flooring and some great Rovers player montages on the walls, whilst the one to the front seemed a bit brighter and was packed full of supporters during my stay, making it hard to get a good look around. The left side of the pub has a separate public bar, accessed by a corridor to the rear. In addition to some basic seating options, there is a dartboard which is flanked with various trophies won by the pub's team. The whole pub, as you might expect, is filled with all manner of Blackburn Rovers memorabilia including some nice, evocative sketches and paintings of the stadium.
There were two Thwaites beers available on handpull when I arrived - Wainwright and Original - with the former being in pretty good nick, perhaps as a result of good throughput over the course of the busy day. The staff provided the kind of swift and efficient service that is vital during busy pre-match periods.
This is a pretty good football pub and I thought it was a bit of a shame they couldn't let away fans in, as some good natured banter would've topped off the visit nicely. There's just about enough here to suggest this could be a decent pub outside the match-day period and I wouldn't turn down a return visit.

This is just a quick reminder about two beer festivals which start in Huddersfield town centre tomorrow (Thursday). The Sportsman on St John's Road is celebrating its fifth birthday with celebratory beers from local brewers like Summer Wine, Empire and Golcar. And The Rat and Ratchet on Chapel Hill is staging its ....
