    I grew up in Moulsecoombe in 70s then went to Falmer school, another historic landmark from my childhood gone
    I can remember going in there at lunch times whilst at falmer. A couple of the teacher's were always in there too. A certain science teacher being one of them.
    They were white.

      They can't change to a restaurant without notifying the council and giving them 56 days notice.

      I don't think they have notified the council at all.

      The first few seasons it was packed on match days but not so much now and also very few games on Saturday now which don't help business.
      There are always masses of people drinking outside the pub on match games - never been inside but I can't believe that people are only outside.

      It's a shame if it closes, it's a really friendly pub. Always seem to strike up a conversation with someone there

      I'm amazed, It's absolutely rammed on match days and it's always been pretty busy when I've been in it.

      If that pub can't make money, how are the other pubs along Lewes Road surviving?
      They aren't surviving are they? I'm not a Brighton resident, but I understand that several pubs have closed along the Lewes Road, just in recent years alone.

      The smoking ban doesn't help. Especially round that way. I grew up in Moulscoomb and was scared to go in there late 60's early 70's
      Old Truelove ain't too hard to find

      They have but in the 12 years that I've been living in Coldean just two along Lewes Rd have closed - The Counting House/White Crow and The Lectern/Tir Na Nog. The only others along that stretch of Lewes Road that have closed are the Ship and the Alexandra (and they were many years ago). The Gladstone and Bear still survive.

      I'm not sure where the Hikers got this reputation from. I grew up in Moulsecoomb so it was the start of the Lewes Road pub crawl, never struck me as a particularly fearsome place

      Agreed ,First few seasons it was always packed .
      Think the trade died off around the time they made coldean and moulscombe match day parking permits .

      matchday parking being impossible now , coupled with their decision to only cook burger and chips didn't help either were as before they had better grub on offer

      When will the Lectern become a supermarket?
