The Evening Star was the original home for the Dark Star Brewery but the brewery’s popularity led to capacity problems and Dark Star are now located in Partridge Green in West Sussex.

Dark Star real ales feature prominently with usually 3 or 4 selections available at any one time. Hophead is constantly available and there is usually at least one of the darker Dark Star beers on as well – Espresso or Original.

As well as the Dark Star beers the Evening Star usually carries a couple of guest beers and some real ciders. All the real ales are well kept and the Evening Star deserves its place in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. There is an extensive selection of European bottled beers in the fridge. Take out containers are available behind the bar should you wish to prolong your experience with the excellent beers – on the train journey home perhaps.

I don’t believe that food is available at the Evening Star. They do have occasional live music events though.

  2. I really love your site ! I have a long way to go to catch up the number of pub reviews that you have done, but in my defense I only started about seven months ago. I was in the Evening Star last summer when visiting some friends in Brighton, I really enjoyed it. The selection of real ales was great. Check out my site, I think you might like it, any advise would be appreciated. Thanks !
