The Watchmaker’s Arms, Hove

You know you’re in a beery place when there are casks under tables and hops hanging from the ceiling.

The Watchmaker’s Arms in Hove is an instantly comfortable place; compact, bright and unfussy, at night it’s romantically lit with filament bulbs and rope lighting, and dogs are most welcome. Some quirky decoration here and there nods to a historic use of the space as a… well the clue’s in the name..

This micropub has an enviable selection of quality beer listed on the chalk board, focusing mainly on cask but with one or two keg options. They even have their own concoctions available from time to time, as a local brewer has set up a microbrewery under the brand Beercraft Brighton.

Wine is also available, and if you get peckish there’s a sausage roll menu. You can order pizza to the pub and they run Sunday cheese evenings.

There’s no garden but in the summer tables and chairs appear alfresco out front.
