Steve C left this review about The Prestonville Arms

The Prestonville Arms was heaving with a middle aged clientele on Saturday evening a couple of weeks ago. This is an L shaped pub and a band was set up to the left of the bar just before some steps that lead up to a raised seating area. The bar also stretches to the right were there is more seating, but this was a little uncomfortable due to the crowds. I was served immediately by a friendly barman and I enjoyed a decent pint of London Pride. Being a Fullers pub the other hand pumps were drawing Discovery, HSB, Seafarers and Hooky Bitter. There is also a standard draught selection and food is served from opening until 21:00 except for Sundays when the kitchen closes at 17:00. The actual pub doesn’t open until 17:00 Monday to Thursday and midday on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. There is extended opening until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. There are two quizzes every week that start at 21:00 on Tuesdays and Sundays.

I probably would have enjoyed my stay more if it wasn’t so busy, but I can’t mark a pub down for being popular. This place is worth a visit, it’s just a shame that it’s an uphill trek in the wrong direction from Brighton Station.

A V-shaped corner Fullers pub. Four ales on over five pumps – Seafarers, Pride (x2), HSB and the ubiquitous (on the day!) Wye Valley guest. It sits at a fork in the road and its pentagonal structure looms impressively in the distance as you approach. Like its sister pub the Sir Charles Napier, this has a traditional feel (and is up a large hill - follow the signs at base camp!) with stripped wood floor, a mix of pew and banquette seating, old prints on the walls and plates above bar. A tidy little venue and popular with the locals, I’d happily pop in again.
