This is a very nicely presented micropub of sorts on a prominent junction in the heart of Portslade. The pub has a decent sized room with modern floorboards, whitewashed walls and a feature wall to the right painted in a warmer shade. Three or four high tables positioned around the front and right-hand sides of the room are served by high stools whilst an additional table to the rear right has hard benches and a couple of low stools, with some temporary screening erected between some of the tables to maximise capacity. The mandatory collection of pump clips covers a good deal of wall space, although the right-hand wall has mainly been decorated with some quirky and retro art prints, a few photos and a board listing the beers that customers can expect to see on the bar in the near future. Perhaps the most distinctive feature is the ceiling, which has been partially covered by a number of cloud shaped cushions, which not only produce quite a striking visual effect, but also help dampen the sound in a room otherwise low on soft furnishings. The servery occupies the rear left corner of the room and has a timber counter front and large blackboard-lined bar back which has the full drinks range detailed on it and is fringed with more pump clips. To the rear, doors lead to the toilets and there is a notice board made from wine bottle corks. The absence of any music was quite apparent, inasmuch as I could hear every word of every conversation going on around me, although most customers had chosen to sit outside where canteen style tables and benches have been lined up along two sides of the building.
All four handpulls were operational when I arrived, giving me a choice of Three Acres West Coast Pale, New Bristol My Mosaic Romance, Ilkley Lotus and Gun Chummy Cluster, whilst three craft kegs had brews from the likes of Good Things and Harbour. The West Coast pale was £4.00 for a pint and in very good shape, brought to my table by one of the friendly, visor-wearing bar team.
Despite its compact size, this place had a bit of ‘proper-pub’ vibe to it as opposed to the usual micropub feel, perhaps helped by the screens which broke the room up a little, but also because of the buzzy atmosphere that gave it more of a ‘lived-in’ feel than most micropubs manage. Definitely worth a look if you find yourself in Portslade, this was a very enjoyable stop on my crawl.

A very nicely appointed and recently-opened micro. There was a good buzz inside on my Saturday afternoon visit with hardly a seat to be had. On the beer front, they offered a range of cask (from the cool room behind the bar) and keg from all over; the two I sampled were spot on.

Judging by the crowds, a quality beer outlet was overdue in this part of the Brighton and Hove conurbation. Definitely worth a visit.

New micropub in Portslade opened Dec 2018 in a former bank and adult learning centre premises. Basic wood based decor with benches and stools. Five cask beers served on gravity from a cool room behind the bar - mainly local but with guests from further afield. Three local real ciders, three keg fonts serving craft beers from around the country, and a selection of wines. Basic interior and décor with some tables and seats. Opening Times: Closed Mon; 12-2, 5-9.30 Tue-Thu; 12-11 Fri & Sat; 12-5 Sun
