Great pub in the centre of Brighton, nice real ales if that's your thing and the food is pretty good. Well worth a try.

This pub in Brighton had a really good atmosphere, busy but friendly. The choice of ales was excellent with a good selection of local Sussex ales. We decided to eat in the pub and the food was also to a high standard, the icing on the cake was for my wife, a vegetarian, who had the full Sunday Nut Roast... More

The Basketmakers Arms is a fantastic pub with a very traditional feel to it. It has a wide & varied beer selection & is always a busy Brighton hub. Thoroughly recommended.

We had a discount voucher for a Fullers' pub so looked up online to find out which were Fullers' pubs and found Basketmakers Arms. Ordered food and drinks to be told they didn't accept any Fullers' vouchers or discount cards because they are a tenancy and not managed by Fullers. Food was lovely and well worth paying for but felt... More

I have been using the pub for many years. There is always a good range of beers - and prompt bar service. The menu is good pub fare with daily specials. The veggy burgers are especially good. Can get a bit crowded so allow for this when visiting and oredring food.

We have been to The Basketmakers arms quite a few times and have always found the food to be excellent. At popular times it is not always easy to get a table but only a short wait seems to work. The beer is excellent too with a great variety of both lagers and bitters. The staff seem to be all... More
