The Royal Sovereign, Brighton
The Royal Sovereign is one of those vaguely traditional but trendy pubs which are two-a-penny in London, but are (marginally) rarer down in Brighton. Expect as mishmash of old tables, offset against new flock wallpaper. Friendly staff usually serve up three ales, including - naturally - an offering or two from Harvey's while we also appreciated the choice of music being played. There's a decent outside space complete with a covered area. Liberally sprinkled with groups of young flat-sharers and students on our midweek visit, we also spied a poker game taking place in the basement room near the toilets; were they hoping for a Royal Flush perhaps?

How to find the The Royal Sovereign pub
It's about a 10-15 minutes walk from the station, the easiest thing to do is to walk down to the sea front, turn right and then turn right up Preston Street when you get to it. You'll see the place on the right a little way up the hill.
