In UK for 10 days from Indonesia and meeting a friend in Hove for a few pints. Looking for a quiet pub with good real ale, preferably Harvey's. Any recommendations?

next to regency square so not palmeira but hole in the wall on queensbury mews! entirely craft-based pub, very well hidden but always lively, especially when it’s raining. have ended up trying many excellent beers there that i had no idea existed beforehand. another +1 for hove place too if you want somewhere a bit snazzier

This brings back some memories. What’s the other pub on this road? One of them was quite wild I recall.

Coopers Cask, was that the original name?

What were your thoughts at the time on:
Hogshead (national chain, I realise)
The Albion
Seafield
Freemasons
Hove Place
Sussex Cricketer … to me a sterile 1970’s bungalow vibe, no heart.
The Star of Brunswuck
The pub on Palmeira Square

Cooper’s Cask! I think this was the slightly crazy one.

Hogsheads was okay. Bit geezery if I remember correctly.
The Albion - Only occasionally visited this place. Okay pub with good roasts but lots of old men
Freemasons - was a regular Friday night haunt for a while around 20 years ago. Was good fun and had some good DJs upstairs.
Hove Place - lovely garden and a Sunday haunt for a while.
Sussex Cricketer … to me a sterile 1970’s bungalow vibe, no heart. Think I visited this place once.

Getting confused as to which pubs these are. Is Palmeira the big one on Cromwell Road?
The Star of Brunswuck -
The pub on Palmeira Square

Hove pubs I used to frequent when living there were:

Friday night/late night shenanigans:
Cooper’s Cask
The Farm
Freemasons
The Bee’s Mouth - some mates used to DJ in the basement here so visited quite a lot.
The Temple Bar although it was called something else then.
The Iron Duke (for late night lock ins)

Foodie pubs:
The Forager
The Urchin

Soft spot pubs:
The Neptune - loved this place and it was open really late.

The Blind Busker is only a few minutes mince along Church Rd from Palmeira. Good selection of ales, and they do decent scran.

What were your thoughts at the time on:
Hogshead (national chain, I realise) Full of Estate Agents
The Albion Full of yummy mummies
Seafield Shocking
Freemasons Too busy
Hove Place Full of Dave Day lol
Sussex Cricketer … to me a sterile 1970’s bungalow vibe, no heart.
The Star of Brunswuck Horrible

Well worth seeking out The Hole in the Wall. Another one I like is the Brick on Preston Street.

15minute walk into Brighton but The Rook is highly acclaimed at the moment and they do £3 cask on a Monday.

Prob not Harvey’s though
