A Harveys pub up Hanover hill where cask and vinyl collide

The Constant Service Brighton

A traditional and relased pub where cask and vinyl collide


The residential setting, plus the fact it’s a hefty trek up a hill to get here from central Brighton, means The Constant Service isn’t on everyones pub trail, and this makes it feel a little like a quiet, out of the way village pub.

Alongside some mainstream lagers there’s a great cask selection here boasting 5 pumps on the bar, and being Harvey’s owned they get all of the great seasonals brewed by the historic Lewes brewery.

A characterful niche of the pub is it’s vinyl only music policy and incredible record collection which looms over you from behind the bar. They seem happy to be asked for requests or just drink in the mood of whatever the bartender has opted for.

There’s a classic food menu on offer in the week, Monday is pie and a pint night for £12 (these were very good indeed last visit) and Sundays is roast dinner day.

They even have a garden space at the Constant Service Brighton which is a decent sized wooden decked seating area providing benches and a couple of sheltered booths.
