The Downsman, Hove 15th September 2007

In order to complete the “Brighton and South Downs Ale Trail” we needed to visit twelve more pubs, many of them not easily accessible by public transport. Our solution was spend the weekend driving to each one with a container for takeaway beer, which we could then drink at our leisure at home. As I can't drive, Dan who can was able to drink as well.

First stop was the Downsman.

Sharp’s Doom Bar Bitter (4.0%): Pleasant bitter with a delicate floral aroma.

    Hi Ruth, would you mind if I borrowed your picture of The Downsman, please? I am putting together a website on the Dyke Railway and this is the best I've seen. Please check the site at

    Hope you are okay with this, many thanks,
