What looks like it was formerly three different retail properties on the Albert Road is now a fairly large Gastro type food orientated bar with three internal sections. Two of those are clearly aimed and set up for dining, but the flag stoned section housing the bar was actually quite a good space for a spot of vertical drinking, especially as the bar supports five ale and cider hand pumps. Apparently Doom Bar and Otter Ale are the permanent house ales and then for our visit Vintage Black Rat Cider was alongside the two guest beers from Electric Bear Brewing Co. mentioned below. I went for the Whirly Bird and very good it was too.
This is another of those places that I couldn’t see myself spending an evening drinking session in, but for somewhere to eat with the knowledge that there is good beer as well, it seems to fit the brief.

A trendy sort of bar, with tiled floors and ceiling fans, which extends across three former shops but is not as large as first appears. It has a fair selection of beers on offer though, with four ales (and a cider) on handpump, being Doom Bar and Otter Ale, plus Electric Bear Whirly Bird pale ale and Werrrd! American IPA.

A modern gastro bar split into three areas and set out obviously with eating in mind, the bar area is though suitably laid out for drinking as well and the five handpumps were providing four beers on the day,Doom Bar of course along with Brighton Heyedaze, Otter Ale and Irving Iron Duke. Decent enough but not somewhere I'd make a bee-line to.
