Ladies Mile Patcham

A charming and welcoming art deco pub hiding in the Brighton burbs


The curved frontage and sparkly columned entrance of Ladies Mile Patcham is inviting and with a touch of fun and a colourful bench seating space on the forecourt overlooking the green opposite would be just the ticket in summer.

Inside you are met by a fine looking and obscenely long curved bar and there’s a distinctly art-deco theme. The lighting, period ceiling and curvature of the bar all give off some very 1920/30s art deco vibes, and it’s characterful rather than dated.</p> Added:

The pub is split into 3 main spaces; the big central bar with spacious booth seating, some high tables and a TV in the corner, a large games room to the left with ample space for a pool table, a darts board and a few high tables, and to the right a space perhaps more focussed on eating with dining tables set out for larger groups.

We counted 6 cask pumps and if just half of them are stocked with different options, that’s still decent choice. Other than that the options are focussed on global brand lagers, ciders and Guinness.

Tisbury’s kitchen run the food at Ladies Mile Patcham and offer a good range of pub snacks, burgers, pubby mains and desserts that are priced fairly rather than gastro expensive.
