A pub in Sussex has been named as one of the best places for a roast dinner in the country.

The Ancient Mariner in Hove was included in a list on National Geographic of the 15 best places to go for the British staple in the UK.

The television network described the community pub, nestled in Hove’s Poet Corner in Rutland Road, as a “boho hive of activity”.

“The Mariner also serves a knock-out roast,” it said.

“Run by the Med restaurant team from neighbouring Brighton, the kitchen brings a cheffy élan to its roast chicken (brined for prime juiciness), or pork (dry-aged to create super-crispy, aerated crackling). Next-level trimmings include grilled hispi cabbage.

“Laine Brew Co. beers star at the bar (try its Sonar IPA), alongside ales from many of the best Sussex craft breweries. Roasts from £15.”

The pub placed fourth below The White Horse in Churton, The Culpeper in London and Balloo House, Killinchy, Northern Ireland.
