Keen to branch out from your local boozer? The Berkeley has opened a pop-up pub on its ground floor – the name is a nod to the mitre hat from the hotel’s original logo. Open Wednesdays to Sundays, the pub is divided into a traditional bar on one side with beers on tap, old church pews and bar stools, and a dining room on the other. There’s beer from a Sussex brewery which you can enjoy with the Bishop’s homemade crisps or proper bar snacks like pork scratchings, fried pickles and black pudding croquettes with homemade HP sauce. There are larger pub classics too, like beef burgers, pies, battered fish and chips, chicken kiev, and a slow-braised salt marsh lamb shank with mash. Leave room for sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice-cream, or a decadent molten chocolate stout cake, and look out for pub quiz questions on the swanky beer mats.
