Marlborough Pub

The Marlborough Hotel was the first of Brighton’s pubs to cater for a predominantly lesbian clientele, but it's also popular with thespians thanks to a small (55 capacity) theatre upstairs. This hosts a show of some kind – gigs, plays or comedy – most nights of the week and is also available for private hire. The pub itself is divided into two distinct parts: the mellower, non-smoking Theatre Bar and the more lively main bar.

Hectors House

Hector’s House is a youth-oriented town-centre pub. With a vibrant and chilled (if that’s possible, we don’t like serving oxymorons) atmosphere, created by the fun-loving clientele, Hector’s is situated in the heart of Brighton, next door to the University art college and only a couple of minutes walk from the seafront and the Palace Pier.

White Rabbit

It’s the name of the waistcoat-sporting character, late for a very important date, who leads Alice into the hallucinogenic world of Lewis Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland.

Signalman

Thanks to a boom in the 1840s, dontcha know, Britain’s railway system is the oldest in the world. And though the trains haven’t improved much in terms of punctuality over the subsequent century and a half, the good news is that wherever those clever Victorians built stations, they also built station pubs, offering a warm, cosy environment for travelling passengers and station hands alike.

Earth & Stars

Surely the most environmentally friendly pub in Brighton, the Earth and Stars is powered by a solar panel in the roof and serves organic lager, cider, spirits and wine, offering a rare chance to help save the planet by getting another round in. If it's all starting to sound a little worthy, fear not - they do plenty of non-organic food and drink too, and the atmosphere, usually fairly mellow, is livelier at weekends.

Western Front

A lively, centrally located pub, the Western Front is popular with both an after-work crowd as well as being a good fun weekend venue. The patio tables are prime people-watching spots thanks to their proximity to Churchill Square, great in the summer for sharing a jug of Pimms. Inside, the pub is split into two levels, with bars on both floors and locally produced art and photography on the walls.

Worlds End

Winner of a Best Bar None award in 2006, The World's End is a large pub that combines traditional décor (bare wood and brick, stone flooring, stained glass panelling, bookshelves) with contemporary touches such as the IT box, new artwork and even a chill-out area, enclosed within a beaded curtain. The big screen is as likely to show a classic movie as the footie, and, as well as pool, they offer games such as chess and carrom.

Quadrant

Located on the landmark Clock Tower at the junction of North Street, Queen’s Road, West Street and Dyke Road, this well-loved pub has recently reopened, entirely refurbished, after a four-year closure.

Fortune of War

Having opened its doors way back in 1882, the Fortune of War is far and away the oldest seafront watering whole, and hence the only pub amongst numerous clubs and bars. It is also the only venue in the whole of Brighton to be shaped like an upside down boat. The main attraction, however, has to be the extremely large beer garden, otherwise known as Brighton beach – offering unparalleled views and atmosphere, even if it is a tad pebbly.

The Cobblers Thumb

An unpretentious local with plenty of regulars, and fitted out with wi-fi too. Although the Ozzie theme is gone now that Matt has replaced the string of managers from Down Under, their spirit lingers on in the selection of imported Australian beers, and in the general laaaaaaid back feel. They boast a heated beer garden and free pool every afternoon.

Fiddlers Elbow

Despite its close proximity to West Street, the Fiddler’s Elbow is a thriving traditional Irish pub – the only one in this part of Brighton. Said to serve the best pint of Guinness in the city (and probably the cheapest too) they also have an enormous selection of Guinness memorabilia on the walls and fixtures and fittings that actually originated in Ireland. You'll find a good selection of Irish whiskies on offer too.

The Hampton

A stone's throw from Churchill Square but slightly off the beaten track, The Hampton attracts a lot of regular faces, yet its stylish, Scandinavian-style 70’s décor is a long way from a standard English locals-only boozer. The beer garden is a particular attraction, a daytime sun-trap that’s equally comfortable in the evenings thanks to halogen heaters.

Fishbowl

With a central location and DJs four nights a week, the Fishbowl is a lively and popular late-night drinking haunt but not your average pre-club – for starters, they won’t allow large groups.

The pub has been immortalised by Graham Greene in his classic novel "Brighton Rock". In honour of that it was decided that the upstairs bar be refurbished in 2005 and re-named The Greene Room.

The Exchange

Huge, footie-mad local with friendly atmosphere and plenty of regulars. The Exchange is the place to head for the big games or events like St George's Day, when they really go to town; but it's equally good for a mellow, midweek pint and game of pool.
