Elegant design, good food and great craft beers await at the top corner of Preston Park
71 Preston Drove
The Park View, Brighton
A classy and buzzy pub with loads of outdoor seating
You have a variety of seating areas to choose from at The Park View – there are high tables to the left, a restaurant-style space to the right and booths hidden among plants running the length of pub. There’s also a classy hidden snug down the back that’s perfect for a more private dining experience.
The outside tiered garden is huge, and a great social space that comes into its own on sunny days.
The long bar offers loads of options with 16 keg taps and five casks, made up of a comprehensive range of standard brands, international and local craft brewers, as well as cider. There’s an extensive menu for diners; we tried the food soon after the re-fit and were very impressed by what we enjoyed.
Downstairs it’s as though a whole second pub has been dropped in with its own staffed bar. This makes for a great hireable event space.
There’s loads of space at The Park View, and yet when it gets busy it feels comfortably close with an exciting buzz. The bar staff are friendly and enthusiastic, and dogs are welcome.
