From the founders of Geronimo Inns in their new venture, Greenwell & Tipple, Rupert and Jo Clevely have sprung a brand new lounge bar, The Cyclist - Refreshment Rooms into the mist of Brighton's newly renovated train station. 

Moving away from gastro-pub clichés and building upon the individuality of Brighton's bustling main station, The Cyclist boasts a twentieth century, bohemian-esque vibe with up-cycled bike parts, old tyres and AstroTurf making up the majority of the bars interior. With seating areas separated by bustling bookcases and cosy seating areas scattered in their abundance, The Cyclist offers themed comfort that is sure to charm. 

From locally sourced beer and ciders to all day dining using local resources and classic British ingredients, The Cyclist offer a laid back yet creative destination for commuters and local punters, allowing eclectic creatives to relax and unwind.

Popped in with a friend on the way home from a day out in London and was very enamoured with this new venue. It was only going to be for one drink it ended up as two. Would have been more but we were a bit pooped after our day's travel. Didn't eat but the menu looked inviting. The decor is funky and relaxing and the staff are cheerful, friendly and helpful. My only gripe is it's name. Opinion on cyclists in Brighton can be quite negative. Read the many articles and comments on them in the Argus newspaper, so naming this establishment after a "controversial" section of Brighton society will rankle with some and isn't really giving an inclusive message. I hope this venue is a success. The signs are good for longevity so far.
