Qype: The Mash Tun in Brighton

BrightonEating & DrinkingPubs & BarsPubs

The Mash Tun was one of my favourite pubs as a student, partly due to its great location and partly due to its quirkiness (in particular their celebrity ‘Wall of Death’ sweepstake). It’s not the trendiest, lightest, brightest or most pleasant place to enjoy a drink, but it’s definitely got something.

Inside it might be fairly dark, but it has an atmosphere so typical of Brighton about it that I love it. They also have a nice little (slightly lighter) upstairs area and great outdoor seating on New Road, one of the best sun traps in the city centre. Their toilets however, are quite scary – think bright orange panic room.

The Mash Tun attracts a great, laid-back crowd, particularly in the summer months when everyone lounges on the outdoor benches in floaty fabrics and over-sized sunglasses. The only drawback is that you have to drink from plastic cups if you’re sitting outside. I know, it’s a ‘health ‘n’ safety’ thing, but I’m the kind of girl that prefers a proper wine glass…
