Sussex Yeoman

7 Guildford Road, Brighton, East Sussex, BN1 3LU
Find this unpretensious little pub, just up the hill from Brighton railway station. They strangly hide their light under a bushel, choosing (even though operating in this style since 1997) not to have a website.

Our advice is to seek them out, as you'll find simple dishes cooked with carefully sourced produce, cooked to the highest standards.

Expect a real unspoilt local, with bare wooden floors and scrubbed pine tables - plus a forever-changing menu on a blackboard.

Chef Ellie Ledden's dishes follow the seasons, but a winter visit brought 'Butternut Squash, Chili & Lime Soup' with pumpkin seeds & homemade bread; 'Moules Mariniere' (also offered as a main with chips), 'Sussex Goats Cheese rolled in Chili Flakes' and 'Pan-Fried Sprats in Smoked Paprika with dill & lemon' listed among the starters.

Main courses included 'pressed shoulder of Sussex Lamb with Salsa Verde'; 'Vegan Nut Roast with Chestnuts, Wild Mushrooms & Sage'; and various fresh fish offering - such as a much enjoyed plate of 'Grilled Sea Bass with Spinach, Mash with Mascarpone & Capers & Roe Sauce'. Excellent daily-changing homemade sausages - perhaps as 'Pork, Smoked Bacon & Black Pudding' are also listed, and a selection of these are also offered for sale to take home.

If you still have room, the sweet-toothed might be tempted by 'Dark Chocolate Brownie with vanila Ice Cream, Seasonal Berries & Choccy Shards'; 'Apple Crumble Cake with Crème Anglaise'; 'Steamed Treacle Pudding with Toffee Sauce' or 'Pear Tart Tatin - while cheeselovers are offered a selection of local artisan varieties.

The details are impressive with excellent bread, top-quality butter and the careful choice of potatoes for the hand-cut chips - all making a difference to the whole.

Service is relaxed, friendly & helpful.
