One room pub opposite Brighton railway station.
In the absence of a bar on the station (open to corrections on that) I guess that the Railway Bell helps to fulfill that role. Unfortunately, in common with other station bars the Railway Bell is not the most inspiring place.
The interior is mainly wood. The bar faces you as you walk in, and the seating areas are to either side and in front of the bar. Outside there are a few seats beside the busy junction and taxi queue.
There are three hand pumps on the bar. On my last visit they were serving Sharps Doom Bar, Shepherd Neame Spitfire and Harveys Sussex Best. Naturally I tried the Harveys, but unfortunately it tasted very tired and I’m glad I only had a half. The prices here are a bit steep – £4.00 for a pint in early September. All the good pubs in the surrounding area are cheaper than this.
Food is available but I’ve not eaten here.
There are many TV screens showing Sky sporting events.
Free wi-fi is available.
