Excellent food - both vegie/vegan and meat options. Great for a Sunday roast. A bit expensive but huge portions. Best to go when you’re really hungry! Amazing space outside upstairs, particularly when it’s a nice sunny day. But also good in cooler weather when you can snuggle up inside in a booth. Wheelchair/buggy friendly. Although the baby change table is very high up so I was changing a nappy at eye level (however I am only 5ft). All in all a wonderful place to visit.

We were having a drink here on a Saturday evening with the Fifa World cup going on. Still managed to get seats (4 people).
2 of the people are smokers. They could smoke at the terrace while still sitting with us.
Beer and Cider were good. Nice and not too loud music.
Mix of all ages.
Not sure about food as we had eaten earlier on.

Lovely pub/restaurant. The terrace area on the top floor is beautiful and great in the summer. Can get very busy on big occasions but is huge and the food is great!

The Vegan Supper Club - I'm not vegan but the food was amazing. Five courses and three glasses of wine at an excellent price. Very creative and rich dishes using refined ingredients. The place is also welcoming and elegant. The dining room is beautiful. Only two small downsides: was a bit too warm inside and they didn't specified on menu and flyers the 10% service charge.

Visited on Saturday 31st March. Impressed by the space inside and the older charm of the decor. Nice mix of people. And a log burner to boot to keep the chill out. Would have liked to spend longer there, but had dinner reservations elsewhere. I will definitely put it on my shortlist for another evening out.

Great place this, it's a cross between a pub, a TARDIS (srs, you would never believe from outside how big it is inside) and a rabbit warren. Quick, friendly service, real ale well kept, didn't try the food. Well hidden and HUGE dedicated sports bar, see if you can find it. ;)

Cant speak to the food, but service seems awful. Walked in on a Tuesday evening in early spring. Bar was half empty. Announced myself to the staff asking for a table for one. Sat there for 20 minutes, received no service so I walked out....fish and chips sure looked good

Had meal with friends here for the first time tonight. Good menu choice with 3 main course vegetarian options. One friend had one these and had no complaints. In fact all of our meals were v good. Fish cake starter was well presented and tasty. The resturant upstairs where we were had a nice decor, good atmosphere, staff were efficent and approachable. Good atmosphere. One small downside was it took while for the main courses to arrive. Nice pub bar area downstairs. Worth a visit.

Very impressive place. Inside outside very handy, still needs a little bit to be great but we'll worth a visit

This place is AMAZING, I only recently found out about it - the smoking area is huge and feels like the inside of a house, which is perfect if you are out at night with a big group of smokers. It is a big venue, which are few and far between in Brighton, and does not get overwhelmingly busy like The Mesmerist does. Would recommend!

This is a fantastic pub and a must visit whether you're a local or just visiting Brighton for the weekend. Its a pub with great staff and has a quirky but traditional feel with its multi-level design and decor.

The first/main area as you walk in looks like most nice pubs with a few cool booth type seating areas towards the back but as you venture deeper in to the building you realise there is more than meets the eye! To the left of the back end of the bar is a small area that leads on to a whole other room and in it, along with more seating, sits a 'pretend' bar and a dapper pretend barman. There are a couple of Windows in this area pointing out to the main bar area, adds to the fun of the place. Before turning left to this area, further at the back, are stairs down to the very spacious and clean toilets and a room that is used for events or private functions. The other set of stairs go up to the restaurant area (stairs to this are also at the front end of the building). If you don't fancy stopping there then you can go up a further level to a covered smoking area, but not like most covered smoking areas I bet you've seen before; it feels like you're still sitting inside, which I thought I was.. wondering why people are smoking.. until a few drops of rain fell on me. Looking up you'll notice in the middle of the high ceiling is a grilled large hole for ventilation.. now it all makes sense.

I love this place and visit regularly now, discovering something new every time I go but the only reason for 4 and not 5 stars is the food, some items are nice but overall it's a limited menu of average quality. Now I'm only talking about what's served in the main area of the pub, I am yet to try the restaurant area and see what's on offer there.

In addition they often host great live music in the pub area and events in the function room downstairs.

Went to The Walrus for New Year's Eve and had a fantastic time. Loved the way it has been redecorated and you can always judge a place by its toilets which were very good.
It was an ambitious menu, 5 courses, but well presented, and couldn't fault the taste
We sometimes had to wait for the next course but given the logistics I think they did very well. We were a very happy group 😊

A friendly pub with a big beer selection. Real warren of a place. Lovely and cosy and nicely decorated. Would be Keen to try the food. They show sport downstairs so a real mixed bag. Will definitely be back!

A kooky place run by the same folks as the iconic Lion and Lobster. Spread over 4 floors, with a bar at the entrance, a restaurant serving great food (although usually disconcertingly quiet), a fantastic glass covered roof terrace, and a basement that they tend to have either live music or show sports. You can normally get a seat without a problem but bar service can be slow.

Unique and interesting venue that seems like it's been there forever but was extensively remodeled and opened in 2017.

One of the cities newest additions, and what a credit it is. Lovely old building that was previously 'Smugglers' the new interior decor has been done in a Victorian/colonial style and has a very comforting feel. There are numerous floors, the ground done out in a more traditional pub setting and has an ambience to match. The first floor is a restaurant and has a more laid back dining experience. The second floor is a roof garden and atrium area that also has a great vibe. The drink selection is very good with a large choice of wines, spirits and craft ales. The food is superb, one of my favourites being the 'Posh Lamb Kebab' which is gorgeous. The staff are very helpful and attentive. Since opening the Walrus has quickly become one of my favourite destinations in Brighton, well worth a visit.
