About The Schooner
Located 4 miles west of Brighton and Hove, the Schooner is pleased to offer a gastro pub experience in a relaxed & inviting environment. With a grand view of Lady Bee Marina we offer craft ales on constant rotation and a modest but lovingly created wine menu. The bar also has a selection of spirits to entice the most discerning drinker.
Our kitchen is open daily offering a selection of classics as well as seafood and game. With panoramic views from one of our popular bay windows The Schooner is the ideal place to spend a Sunday afternoon enjoying a roast with good company. Only seconds from the bus (Stagecoach 700) or Southwick Station there is barely a need to use our onsite parking.
When placing a reservation please inform us if you have any access requirements, need a highchair or plan on bringing a dog.
Lovely place, lovely food. So nice to have such a great place to eat in Southwick.
A very pleasant meal. Just a couple of points to help improve things. The spring onion mash was very good but it would have been even better if there had been more than about a tablespoon of it. The meal was served on cold plates which meant the food cooled very rapidly. It would have been better if it had remained hot until finished.
Love this pub, go every week for the pub quiz which is great fun and compared by the lovely Chris. Also eat there a lot and am always impressed with the food, always hot. Service fab, very friendly. Fab place.
I enjoyed my meal and thought the staff super efficient. Will definitely be coming back.
Fab. Great pub, friendly and the food is always piping hot and tastes great. I’m pescatarian and am impressed with the options. The falafel burger is lovely.
the Spanish night was great food was excellent great atmosphere can't wait for the next themed night
We had an amazing meal at the Spanish themed evening. The tapas was delicious and very well presented. The paella was authentic and beautifully cooked. We finished with the yummy desserts. Looking forward to the next themed evening already! Amazing service too.
We were a little disappointed with the food on Sunday compared to several month's ago as the Schooner had been a favourite of ours. It was overcooked and dry - the roast potatoes were very hard and difficult to cut through. I would also really like to see something fruity/healthy on the pudding menu as the sweets on offer are all high in fat and sugar. At the moment there are lots of English soft fruits available.
Excellent atmosphere and service. Quality of food was excellent as always, only slight hiccup was several items were off the menu as they’d been busy.
Our first visit here. We sat at a table overlooking the harbour and had a lovely meal. Four of us all ate something different for both starters and mains - each dish was delicious. Friendly service too! We will definitely return.
I had the fish and chips but left half. The chips tasted as though they had been cooked before and some were too chewy to eat and the fish was very greasy. This was such a shame because visits prior to the fire were amazing
Always enjoyed my entire experience here. My wife and I treat ourselves to an evening here when we can and are never disappointed.
Lovely meal - good wine 😊
Only 2 veg options which is fine but both had nuts which my husband is allergic to! Maybe they should consider this for the future.. although the chef knocked up an alternative which was very tasty and in my opinion, an example of great service. Thoroughly enjoyed the salmon roast, unusual but worked really well!
Function room was great venue for a get together, we were well looked after and enjoyed the food, drink and view! Thanks again.
More potatoes on Sunday roast, it is one of the things you remember when eating Sunday roast
The server was pleasent but I was made to feel like it was my fault when I asked about desserts after 9.30 and the kitchen stops at 9.30 but no one had asked us if we would like some before this time. I was surprised on a Friday night they had run out of quite a few things. Food was nice but could of been better seasoned and the bill took 3 times to get right hopefully just a off night. Would probably come back and give it another try.
Excellent friendly service, good food at a reasonable price
Wonderful food, staff and value and still enough atmosphere even on a Tuesday evening!
A new find for , close to where we live great food and service. We will certainly visit again.
My only critical comment on the roast dinner is that there could have been more vegetables - but everything I did have was delicious. The view is fabulous and the staff were all lovely.
Went here for Valentines night. Was yet again fantastic food. We love this place. Well worth a visit.Well done ,keep it up
Lovely food. Always a good experience
