‘A pub where money can come for free’ – The Cask Report 2019

I love cask ale and was very happy to be invited to contribute a short piece to this year’s Cask Report about one of my favourite places to drink it.

The Basketmakers is the place where Brighton leaves messages for itself. Tucked inside the vintage tobacco tins that cover almost every inch of the pub’s walls, there are small folds of paper, tiny twisted notes that reveal something of the city’s heart.

You can find The Basketmakers Arms at 12, Gloucester Road, Brighton, BN1 4AD. And, if you go there, have a pint for me.
