Square Meal Review of The Basketmakers Arms ?

Don't expect big-screen sports or loud music at this Brighton veteran; the Basketmakers is a refuge for those seeking the civilised pursuits of good beer & good conversation. There's nothing particularly remarkable about the low-ceilinged bar – the weathered interior hasn’t changed in decades – but that's exactly how the regulars like it. The pub's simple pleasures begin with well-kept Fuller's Ales (London Pride, ESB & Seafarers are top tipples), while those fancying a dram are spoilt for choice with an array of 100-odd whiskies. No-nonsense food takes in steaks, sandwiches & steaming bowls of mussels, but it's the homemade burgers that usually win the day. It can be hard to secure a seat, but make sure to investigate the old tobacco tins on the walls: drinkers have been leaving messages, scrawled poems & pictures in them for years.
