The Hampton Arms reviews

By David F.

Apparently it was under temporary management for a month during this time. Lots of gossip and talk as to why the previous manager and staff left but im not really a fan of gossip. I'm a local and agree that things did seem to slip for about a month so gave it a miss for a while but started going back in a couple of months ago and am pleased to say that things have greatly improved. The food is homecooked and delicious, nothing too fancy and the Sunday roasts are more than respectable. It feels like my local again and would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a cosy atmosphere. The new manager and staff seem laid back but professional too.

What on earth is going on here? I haven't been to the Hampton for over a month and on Sunday...none of the usual staff. What's happened as the management seems to have changed? Went for lunch and the place felt different. Wasn't as clean as it used to be, the service was poor and the roast so disappointing. They used to be amazing. Others were complaining too. Not going back....going to find out where the old staff have gone and go there!

Just had a lovely roast dinner. Lamb was super tender and the veg was really varied and cooked well. Good selection of beers, largers and wines. Friendly staff. All round good pub.

What a find! Went to this pub for the first time with our two Jack Russell's yesterday & we had a fantastic time. Great venue & even lovelier staff! Must try out the food next time. I think I will make this my local!

went to the Hampton for my birthday meal,and although the bar was busy with a cider festival,the staff had kept us a table.The food was excellent.we shared a salmon starter then both had steaks followed by a cheese platter.All was cooked ,presented,and served very well.Attention to detail was the same as you would expect in a first class restaurant.The steaks were juicy and the hand-cut chips were very good.Salad was dressed properly.The selection of cheese was exceptional and served at room temperature.We could not have had a nicer meal.So for a reserved table a few ciders which we of course had to sample,3 courses of tasty food our bill was under £50.Brilliant value for top class food.

14 members of my work crew had our Christmas meal at the Hampton and I will in all honesty say that this would never have happened under the OLD management. The welcome was delightful and the food was out of this world, we all as a team couldn't speak highly enough of it. Not only was the food wonderful but the atmosphere was cracking This pub is one you really really need to visit and like me I bet you'll become a regular.

Yes these guys are new management and hooray I say. I had a burger on Saturday and it was amazing, even gherkins on the side for pickle phobics. Really good value for money and great beers too. Dark star and Hepworth. Nice to have a decent pub again as I used to drink here years ago and then it went downhill so I stopped going. Apparently one of the best roasts in Brighton too, but I have yet to try it, but I noticed that they use rib of beef on their roast which is rare (pardon the pun) on menus. Well done. Wholeheartedly recommend this pub. Hope they can keep it up.

I've just read the 4 reviews on the Hampton arms pub and I must inform everyone that it is now under NEW MANAGEMENT! The atmostphere is fun and relaxed, the staff are attentive and extremely warm and welcoming and very professional even on the busiest of nights. The food is absolutely out of this world and well worth every penny (portion size perfect)! I would recommend this pub to everyone, no matter what age.

Went along to "Mod for It" at The Hampton on 2nd Sept - as advertised on here and still advertised on chalk board in pub - but was not being held. I enquired why the event was still being advertised despite there being no intention of holding it. I was told it was "down to the laziness of the landlord". THAT is what i call lazy.. - couldn't even wipe off chalk board. That was the third time I have turned up to an advertised event at The Hampton that was not at all as advertised. Advice - dont bother! Advertising Standards should get involved as getting public there on false pretences.

By Chris L.

The manager is absolutely horrible and shouldn't be allowed to run a pub, he put out an umbrella and soaked my fiancé and told her it was her fault and when we tried to give him feed back he told us we should go to another pub. I would never go back even though it is only 5 seconds down the road! Never visit The Hampton Arms ever. And I mean ever!

By Brian B.

This is a great pub with a nice atmosphere in the evenings, generally pretty relaxed and friendly. The food is always top notch and served quickly. The barmaids are all ace & very friendly but try to avoid getting served by any of the guys as they tend to ignore you, don't know about what they are serving or just leave you wondering how they managed to get dressed that day. At least you can relax by the open fire safe and let the frustrations of trying to get served fade away. The only real downer is the musical choice; if you are there for any length of time, it will repeat and repeat. If you go in the following day, it will be the same!

By Andrew James F.

Heard someone talking about the Hampton the other night and thought I'd take the missus for a meal.

Great little menu, all the right things on it for a pub, and it was well presented.

The chef brought the food to the table in person, something that doesn't happen anywhere else in Brighton, and to top it all of it tasted fantastic, even the baby loved it!!!!!!

I would highly recommend giving it a go.....!!!!!!!!!!

The Hampton has got Brighton style in spades and it's handy central location ensures that it is continually busy.

The Venue
Kooky and funky, The Hampton has shedloads of style from the stripped wooden floorboards, brown leather banquettes and 70s style wallpaper to the music blasting out through the speakers which follows a loose indie rock vein. Eclectic artwork adorns the walls and there's a covered seating area with wooden benches outside.

The People
Drinkers are generally in their mid-20s to early-30s age range and they're an artistic lot who happily donate their own paintings and artwork to hang on the pub's walls. The staff party as hard as the punters so don't be surprised if they end up as your new best mates.

The Drink
Draught beers include Harveys, Grolsch, Kronenbourg Blanc, Guinness and San Miguel but if you're more likely to opt for a fizzy apple brew you'll still be happy as there's Westons Scrumpy and Old Rosie cider on tap too. As for the food, the Sunday roasts are rightfully popular and whilst you're waiting for it to arrive you can always scribble on a napkin and ask them to add your contribution to the artwork on the walls.

The Last Word
Quirky and cool this retro styled pub keeps pulling the punters in. The arty, studenty crowd can't get enough of The Hampton and if you're wise you won't stand your ground, you'll join them.
