It has a feeling of cool, east Berlin. The service is friendly and efficient. They bring your coffee to your table so there's no queuing like in a canteen. There's even a little garden area. I secret hideaway in the middle of the city.

Positve – Great food. Great during the day and friendly.
Negative – Because of the ‘pub unfriendly’ neighbours (why would you buy a house in a small street with a pub?), the windows are sealed, therefore no ventilation, noisy, stuffy and somewhat like a cattle transport truck on the way to the abattoir! – This is a real problem on a busy weekend night.
Shuts at 23:00 on nights other than Friday and Saturday. you might have your pint snatched from you at 2 minutes past… Annoying..

Nasty! Extremely overpriced food and it’s served grossly over-cooked.. Stay clear if I were you..!! Take a look at the kitchen’s windows from the street on the 1st floor. Would you want to eat food that comes out of there?
There’s great food in nearby pubs that are much, much better value for money like the Thomas Kemp, a stone throws away, or The Camelford Arms in Camelford Street, about 10 mins walk away..
I’m only giving it one star cos it won’t let me give none!.

Probably one of the, if not nicest and definitely friendliest pubs in Kemp Town. Bright (not dark), dog friendly, couches for kicking back, tables for eating... A typical 'Brighton' bar mixed ages, with Berlinesque overtones. Funky music. Gets busier and with DJs in the weekend evenings. I think the chef has probably watched too much masterchef - not knocking the chef tho'. The food is good and very tasty but a bit poncily (is that a word?), presented. Please Brighton, don't join the London 'gastropub' culture!
All round a good little (or quite large actually), boozer. Well managed with friendly, polite staff. Go there!!!
To add.. December 2010
New Manager now. Not that the last one was bad.. A few of us went there for Sunday lunch. We all had lamb. It was a rack of lamb. I have to say that it was no less than exceptional! Extremely high quality that most restaurants would struggle at competing with! You have to try it. Really, great food!

One of my fave pubs in Brighton. Unfortunately there's a nasty crowd that get in there early in the evening (presumably cashing in on the 'happy hour'), shouting and effing and blinding.
I sat on the next sofa to a crowd of them tonight and they were dissing pubs in Kemp Town (namely the Ginger Pig), because they all have 'gays' working in them. He went on to say that he doesn't like that end of town because it's 'full of them'.
Then went on to say that he has recently been in a gay pub on the seafront (wiv some geezer on the door in drag wiv tattoos), that sells drinks for £1.25!!
He said that he went in there "wiv a couple of birds" (you understand)!! God forbid should he be mistaken for being gay!! Can't imagine what class of 'bird' escorted him safely onto the premises!
I think we should
A) rejoice he keeps away from darkest Kemp Town, and
B) he stays in that vile seafront bar (don't know which one, but I've got a good idea), and doesn't get touched up by 'the geezer in drag'!! and,
C) takes his obnoxious friends with him!
Shame about The Sidewinder. I still really like the place for all the reasons others have mentioned previously but this trash that seem always in search of cheap booze are really spoiling it and lets just hope that they drag this venue down to the level of many others in Brighton!!

I agree with hartingale. Nice little find in Kemp Town. Very sophisticated and drink prices are reasonable.
Used to be a nasty pub with gobbledegooks and ne'er-do-wells hanging around outside. Lovely to see it's changed hands..
Right! eaten their food now. Well actually at The Rock pub (opposite). They have a thing going, food-wise (not for too long, I hope).
A few of us went to the quiz night at The Rock, great night. We decided to eat too. The food came from The Swan over the road. My pasta was ok, quite good tho' nothing too special and a reasonable portion for the price but,,,, a couple of us had 'Bangers & Mash'. Tasty but two sausages and an embarrassingly small portion of mash with onion gravy for £8 something! Hardly touched the sides!! We had to ask for bread (to try and bulk it up a bit), you shouldn't have to ask at those prices. Us, who chose the pasta felt we had to share ours with the poor B&M victims. I've said it before, London, please keep your pretentious gastro-pubs to yourselves. Please, please don't bring 'em down here. Bad value for money.. Sorry, food-wise, I can't recommend. Pretentious load of old nonsense!
The sooner The Rock starts to do it's own food, the better.
Sorry, Swan. You've just lost 2 stars.. :-(

Nice, friendly pub. Thankfully new owners now, who care about the place unlike the previous owners.
One recommendation to the new Rock owners, do your own food. Currently you can order food from The Swan opposite or Pizza Face, a local pizza take away. Not bad food by any means but in my opinion, bad value for money. Both, over priced.
Nice pub tho'. Go to the quiz night on a Thursday night. Good laugh and the 2 guys who now own it are very welcoming and friendly. The Rock now seems to be back to how it was some time ago. A good, friendly local pub with, at last, atmosphere. Also at long last, dogs are welcome!
