      The Hand in Hand The Hand in Hand may be a small boozer but it's a one of the seven wonders of Brighton. Offering five tipples lovingly brewed on the premises as well as a couple of guest ales and all the usual tipples it's not surprising it features in CAMRA's Good Beer Guide. But it is not a real ale pub, its not about boring fellow drinkers about the marvellous pint of Scrope's Wanglebreath you enjoyed at the Rutland Hop festival in 1986 but a good pub that serves real ale. So often real ale pubs think a large selection of cask conditioned ales is enough. The Hand in Hand provides the ales and the venue. This pub has real atmosphere and interest. Wallpaper is shunned in favour of yellowing newspaper, a real one armed bandit nestles just inside the door, turn of the century pornography featuring women of a certain size adorn the ceiling and a brace of old-fashioned waterbattles nestle alongside assorted breweriana. Hundreds of neckties hang, presumably as trophies of unsuspected suits who have entered this temple to ale overly dressed. I like this pub, I like it more than I can say. It should be declared a national treasure.
