The Hand In Hand
A beautiful old pub in Brighton,
Kemptown, to be precise,
On Upper St James Street,
The Hand In Hand
Couldn’t be smaller 
Or quirkier if it tried!
No sports on TV here,
Unless Wales are playing rugby,
In which case the publican,
A Welshman,
Is the staunchest supporter!
An old school one arm bandit
Fruit machine
And a vintage table-top
Arcade 2 man Space Invaders game
Is your entertainment of choice,
And it’s nostalgic fun!
But most of all,
The pub boasts its own
Kemptown microbrewery,
Making craft beers,
And guest ales and lagers
Are featured from near and far.
So breathe yourself into this tiny pub,
Step back in time
And enjoy the Hand In Hand.
