Brighton Pubs

Drink and be merry

"Probably the best boozers in the world"

Brighton has an amazing amount of pubs and bars (Hove has quite a few too), supposedly one for every day of the year. The great Hanover residential area especially, seems to have a pub for every 10 inhabitants.


Kids welcome Brighton's pubs range from small cosy Victorian front rooms, converted churches to large theme pubs housing every video game imaginable. Definitely there's a pub for every conceivable taste. Many pubs serve very good food, others stage live music, some even have karaoke but all serve great beer.

Live music If you like real ale Brighton is a paradise.
Some pubs even have their own micro breweries on site (The Hand in Hand) so you can watch the stuff brewing if that's what really turns you on.
Local notable breweries include Harveys in Lewes.

Pool table Obviously we can't visit all the pubs (we've tried, OK?) so we've created a form for you to add your favourite pub and a short review (hopefully not after having consumed 5 pints!).

Garden The only downside is you will have to know the address of the pub (so a phone directory may be handy). We'll dip in every now and again and clear up any typos. Publicans especially are welcome to add their pubs. If you feel the details of any pub have changed please email us and we'll update the entry. Thanks
