The Basketmakers Arms

12 Gloucester Road, BRIGHTON, BN1 4AD

Peter Dowd has run his Victorian back-street local with passion and pride for nearly 30 years. Tucked away in the bohemian North Laine area, quirky customer messages left in vintage tins on the walls have made the pub a local legend. Expect to find a splendid selection of Fuller's and guest ales, around 100 malt whiskies and rarely seen vodkas, gins and bourbons. The menu lists popular plates, whose affordability is noteworthy. Sandwiches, baguettes, cheesy chips and garlic bread are some of the snack options. For a larger appetite, choose from good quality steaks, a range of burgers, and locally caught fish. The specials board changes daily.
