Central bar with an eclectic decor including pictures of a bizarre collection of people at the back and a painting of Sean Connery & Michael Caine from The Man Who Would Be King. 6 real ales and food served.

Steve C left this review about Freemasons Tavern

The Freemasons Tavern has a relatively traditional pub interior with a front island bar and little seating areas around. There are a few sofas thrown in and after looking a little deeper I discovered that this is in fact a pub aimed directly at students who get discounts throughout the day and evening. Pub grub is served between noon and 21:00 every day and the mains are priced around the £8 mark. The bar is stocked with limited standard draught products and two hand pumps were unused during my early Tuesday evening visit so Deuchars and W J King’s Five Generations were the ale options.
To the right rear of the pub there is a seating area that houses a plasma screen that was showing a football match via Sky Sports. This was muted as far as I know as there was some loud funky house playing and I got the feeling that the pub probably gets busier later in the night. As far as I could tell there is a late license every night and this pub shuts in the early hours at the weekend. There is a room upstairs with bar that is available for hire, but I didn’t visit on this occasion.
The art deco frontage in copper with mosaic tiling and masonic symbols as well as references to Kemp Town Brewery is worth a look if passing. However, the interior is less interesting and I’m not within the demographic that this pub is aiming at so I’ll be walking past next time I’m in Hove.
