The Prestonville Arms Brighton
A bright and lively locals’ pub with loads of cask on the bar
In a quiet back street near Seven Dials, Brighton sits The Prestonville Arms, a Fuller’s pub with a bright, relaxed and modern feel.
In recent years the pub has seen far too many publicans come and go, but the couple now running the pub are passionate local punters who made the bid to run it when they realised it was going to close long term.
The pub has a mint green and black colour scheme, light wooden floors, a big central wooden bar, cushioned bench seating along the walls, tables, chairs and some cosy old armchairs by the fireplace.
The pub welcomes children and is incredibly dog friendly to the point that landlady came over to make a fuss of our four-legged companion.
There is a very impressive array of six cask pumps mainly offering Fuller’s established favourites, and after 5pm the regulars often congregate at them giving the place that great afternoon buzz that confirms it’s a haunt for chatty locals.
The keg options are somewhat limited to what is available though Fuller’s, and therefore unlikely to offer obscure craft brewers all too often, that said they were 3 good and eclectic options. A global selection of lagers round things off with Staropramen, Amstel, Peroni and Asahi available, pretty impressive options for a humble backstreet local.
The food menu is made up of loaded fries, burgers and traditional pub mains and we experienced excellent pub food and incredibly efficient service on our visit.
