The Ancient Mariner is a well-known hostelry and has a devoted following among pub-goers in West Hove. It is a big, airy pub with little corners for hiding in and a lively atmosphere, provided mainly, by those who live close by. It also has a beer garden at the back.
Their menu is varied and has something for everyone. It is known for its variety of sausages and mash but also offers a range of light bites, burgers, salads and vegetarian dishes too. For more information, go to: www.drinkinbrighton.co.uk/ancient-mariner
They have been offering a Jazz night on Thursday evenings for a while now, starting at 8.30. We listened to some of this when we went to The Mariner in August and it certainly added something a bit different to the evening! So, we'll have plenty of time for eating before the music starts!
The Mariner is not lost in the wilds of Poets' Corner and is easy to get to! Buses 2, 46 and 49 stop at Westbourne Street or Scott Road and you simply walk up Rutland Road. Alternatively, the No.5 stops at Coleridge Street and you then walk down Coleridge Street to the pub. In each case, the walk is no more than 5 minutes. Coming by rail, Aldrington Station is even closer!
This will be a fun evening and it won't be as hot as it was when we last went!! I hope to see you there!
