Tris C left this review about The Railway Bell

This pub is situated almost at the mouth of the railway station's entrance and receives a glowing review on WhatPub?.
Given the location, the pub holds no surprises but being Brighton, is friendlier than most railway transients' pubs. It's carpeted, has games machines and is big on TV sports with multiple screens dotted about the place, generating much noise.
Ales: Harvey's Sussex Best at £2.20 a half which is a bit steep though at least it was in good condition.
This place will appeal to the sports' enthusiast but has retained little for the pub traditionalist and given the location, there are plenty of local alternatives.

Given the location, it's no surprise that this place has a transient feel, and the fairly basic fit-out doesn't exactly help (with the sports TVs being the most obvious features). Four handpumps on the counter, offering Doom Bar, Harvey's, Pedigree New World and Cameron's Thirst Blood (£4.25).

When first arriving in Brighton early morning I utilised this place because I needed somewhere showing the Lions Tour game and this was open early, had the game on, beer flowing, and pork scratchings behind the bar for a healthy breakfast.
Actually it’s not so bad and certainly seems to have been improved from reviews before its refurb.
The space in front of the bar is wood floored and has some high stools and high tables. And then the two areas either side are carpeted with some comfy seating and a decent sized plazma screen for both areas.
And there are four hand pumps on the bar which had Doombar, Harveys Best and TT Landlord with the fourth reversed.. And I managed to eke out perfectly reasonable pints of the Best and Landlord in each half of the Rugby, by which time it had gone past 12 and The Evening Star was open..
