Will Larter left this review about The Hanover

This is a lively and popular pub, with such a crowd around the bar when I arrived shortly after opening time that it was difficult to see what beers were on. I counted half a dozen hand pumps, with a real cider and local ales from Firebird, Greyhound, Gun and Cellar Head breweries. It was very lively on a Friday afternoon, with workers having just knocked off for the weekend creating a throng around the bar counter, so that I was unable to note all the beers and had to escape to a nearby table to write what meagre notes I could. I had the Cellar Head Bitter Tide, which vied with Franklins Mama Knows Best for my beer of the (very long) day. This is a pub I would definitely include on a list of Brighton pubs to revisit, with a mental note to choose another time than 3pm on a Friday next time.

The first thing that struck me on entering was the aroma of pizza. But that's not so bad - the Hanover's food offer centres on stone-baked pizza. I didn't try one, but it seemed to be popular in this family-friendly pub.

I was here for the beer and, as part of the local Indigo Pub Company chain, I was assured of local ale - the 6 pumps are dedicated to Sussex (and a bit of Surrey), some of them at a very reasonable £2.79. As is the way with many of the Indigo outlets, hand-written notes adorn the clips. The beer may have been served in a mug, but The Hanover managed to serve it without the retro irony that afflicts too many London pubs.

Background music was playing here: all I can say is that the style was 'funky', and at just the right volume.

All in all, a decent pub in a part of the city with many great options. Well worth a visit if you're pub-crawling the Hanover / Queen's Park neighbourhoods (or you just fancy a pizza and some quality ale).
