7 reviews of The Royal Sovereign in English
This pub is cute and charming with a lovely outside area. There is a good selection of food and what we ordered was very tasty, although the sweet potato wedges were a bit undercooked. Friendly attentive staff who seemed genuinely concerned with our comfort.
Although I was dubious about wandering in to a pub on the neon-sign covered Preston Street – especially one that brought to mind images of the short mouthy Lady from Celebrity Big Brother – I was more than pleasantly surprised by The Royal Sovereign.
There’s always a great vibe and it’s the perfect spot for a mellow Sunday roast. I’d actually go so far as to say it’s the best roast in Brighton and if you’re thinking of giving it a try then I highly recommend the pork belly – top notch crackling and loads of great veggies.
Food throughout the week is of a really high standard too. I received a bounty of sausages with a mountain of mash and gravy not long ago and it was ruddy divine. Topped the lot off with a cheeky deep fried snickers bar for desert.
In winter there’s a toasty fire and in summer you can enjoy the decking outside. If you can handle it there’s a coin-flip on Sunday nights with the chance to win your round again for free and it’s ruined my Monday morning too many times.
It can get really busy, particularly for Sunday roasts so it’s worth getting there early.
A lot of pub that are as ridiculously central as the Royal Sovereign are terrible dives that stay busy because of their location...luckily this pub sets the standard. It's a very traditional pub layout with modern features and decor. They serve amazing Sunday Roasts and have a varied modern European the rest of the week. Its easily beats anything else in the area so its a winner of your shopping a gasping for a bev.
Preston Street may not seem like the best street to go in search of a Sunday Roast, however, The Royal Sovereign does some of the finest roasts available in the area. While its exterior might suggest ‘traditional patriotic boozer’ the interior shows a surprising eye for style, as the atmosphere is nicely balanced between cosy and clean. With pints priced at about £3 it’s equally great as a place to relax with a pint. They also serve a few nice ales along with other foodie things. Certainly worth a try.
If you like a 16 hour slow-roast pork for your Sunday lunch, then this is the best place to go in Brighton. Just make sure you get there before about half three because they are very popular.
The staff are all gorgeous and friendly and always busy, offering a great service.
They've got a lovely beer garden and inside are nice big thick, oakish looking tables to enjoy a nice pint and relax with your newspaper, book or laptop (free wireless, folks).
Not only are they famous for their roasts but they also put on funky DJ sets on the weekends. And don't forget Monday night is poker night if you want to make some new friends or just pick up some tips.
Another great “traditional” pub in brighton. Pub is almost divided into three areas and there is pleanty of seating. Really nice courtyard for those rare sunny days. Always has a great laid back atmosphere - especially on a Sunday where there are piles of newspapers available for you to read. Wide range of beers and wine available. Have never eaten in there - but from what I have seen the food looks great (and don’t doubt it tastes so too !)
