In the sightline of the thing that resembles a bagel sliding up and down a snooker cue, until about four years ago this was the Prince Arthur, a sweet little pub with two doors, ‘In’ and ‘Out’ though this edict doesn’t seem to be strictly enforced. Inside, and it’s a mix of old and contemporary. The bar is panelled with an attractive bar back, the walls are part t ‘n’ g panelled, slender metal structural columns hold up the ceiling. The floor’s bare boarded and furniture is a mixture of the conventional, low or tall. There’s also much bare brick and hipster filament lamps hang from the low ceiling on low flexes. The hipster tableau is completed with the presence of a friendly, pogonic barman.
Too many ales to mention, I went for the Pomona Island Brewing Co’s Pale at £2.05 a half and very good it was too. Indeed, all in our group seemed suitably impressed with their choices.
This is definitely one to include in a crawl – I thought it was one of the day’s highlights.

What some people might describe as an unfinished look is just the informal, relaxed and even slightly rough feel that I think can denote a pleasant drinking environment. The Beer Dispensary is a must-visit when in Brighton, for its excellent selection of beers and ciders from both cask and keg. It always seems to be busy (I've visited at several different times of day) with a good mix of people of different ages and types. I've only ever had one beer that was not quite right - I had Southey Best 4.5% one evening and went for the same beer the next afternoon, having enjoyed it the night before, but it now tasted well below par. The barman at first claimed that the beer was ok and it was meant to be like that, but when I pointed out that it didn't taste the same as the night before he immediately changed it. I can't imagine a visit to Brighton now without coming here.

Date of visits: 22nd & 23rd March 2018

Found this pub had a half finished feel about it Good beer selection and my Pamona Island beer was one of the better on the day.
