The Greene Room

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 Greene Room is now home to some of the most spectacular memorabilia concerning Graham Greene and ‘Jack the Ripper’ and can certainly keep one entertained whilst enjoying a classic beverage.

The Greene Room

St James

The Saint James is a vibrant little pub with a huge bar and a relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere. Situated in the ‘bohemian’ Kemptown in East Brighton, the Saint James is as welcoming as the area is colourful. Only a stone’s throw from the beach, this convivial hostelry can be found nuzzling away from the hectic seafront, providing a safe haven for more discerning locals and well-informed holidaymakers alike.

The Juggler

Located just into Hove, the Juggler attracts a mixed crowd from regulars to pre-club revellers, drawn in by the warm atmosphere, long happy hours and top class DJs. They offer free wi-fi, sporting events on TV and various weekly events such as the open mic and live gigs. The pavement tables are a popular option during the summer, while they're open until the early hours every night of the week all year round.

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.

Marlborough Pub

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. It’s also the title of the classic 60s psychedelic song by Grace Slick and Jefferson Airplane, as featured in Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas and a hundred other bastions of counter culture. A new pub in Brighton’s ever-vibrant North Laine.

Leconfield Arms

A good ole locals pub with a large number of regulars, the Lord Leconfield Arms is the sort of traditional no-nonsense watering hole that’s becoming increasingly rare in the face of the pre-club bar invasion. The focus is more on maintaining a friendly, genuinely welcoming atmosphere than on specific events, but they do screen sports matches, offer pool and darts and host various one-off live music events. They also offer an excellent beer garden.

Victory Inn

One of the oldest watering holes in Brighton, in many ways the Victory Inn has the feel of a traditional pub, albeit given a more contemporary, loungey feel complete with sofas in the downstairs bar. With each floor divided into three small rooms, it benefits from a more intimate feel than its capacity would normally allow, while the location in the heart of The Lanes keeps the atmosphere lively.

The Hope

With a highly central position between the Clock Tower and Brighton station, the Hope is a bustling, music-led, watering hole popular with everyone from skinny, guitar-toting types to the after-work crowd, with the location guaranteeing a regular supply of fresh faces. There are always quality tunes on the stereo, from 13th Floor Elevators to The Automatic; a recently installed pizza oven, meanwhile, means no-one need go hungry.

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.

Sidewinder

Laid-back in the daytime and lively at night, the Sidewinder is a large and bustling watering hole that's firmly entrenched in the nightlife of Brighton, attracting drinkers from across the city as well as plenty of Kemptown locals. It is also surely the only pub in Brighton to boast not one but two large beer gardens, one of which is heated and covered with sofas to create the perfect outdoor drinking space.

Occupying a prime location on the City's world famous beach front, The Brighton Coalition is a brand new arts and entertainment venue, showcasing a varied program of live music, comedy and entertainment.   Open 7 days a week, with a cafe canteen run by the people who brought you Pinxto People, The Brighton Coalition will be yet another reason why you should be down by the sea.

Mash Tun

With its “friendly food… tasty bar staff” sign, the Mash Tun is one of the best-known pubs in Brighton and has become a local landmark as well as one of the town’s most popular meeting points. They also have a good daytime trade, serving food (reasonably priced classic pub grub) seven days a week.

Easy Bar

Centrally located but markedly different in atmosphere from anything on neighbouring West Street, the Easy Bar has a committed lunchtime and after work crowd during the week, turning into more of a party venue at weekends. They have DJs every weekend, playing everything from house to funk and soul, with the regular It’s A Rave Dave being particularly notorious. There’s also a monthly comedy night and, though a long way from a sports bar, they show most footie matches too.

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.

Bath Arms

The Bath Arms enjoys a reputation among tourists and locals alike as THE pub of The Lanes. Boasting reclaimed wood and antique furniture, paintings on the walls and an open fire, its cosy atmosphere combines elements of the traditional and the contemporary. The pub boasts a strong food menu, which is locally sourced and organic where possible, and wide drink selection, with a particular focus on wine and real ale.

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. With atmospheric traditional decor, expect pavement tables, a heated rear garden, and a games room with pool table and darts board.

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.

Thomas Kemp

Having undergone a serious going-over since its days as Polar East, The Thomas Kemp now boasts a rather different character, with old maps on the wall and even a full suit of armour in the corner. There's a sun-trap beer garden to the rear, while windows at front and back are thrown wide open duirng summer; in winter, you're best off staying inside and making yourself acquainted with the cake. Not just in the winter, for that matter.

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.

The Globe

One of the very few traditional pubs in close proximity to the seafront clubs. Instead of tacky pre-club décor, think mustard and deep red colouring, a copper-paneled ceiling, ornate mirrors, a chandelier and even a Sherlock Holmes style library downstairs. Yet it’s no old man’s boozer: they offer wireless connections for those with laptops and, for those without, a fully-connected PC on the bar.

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. Bounded by four of the busiest roads in the city, the Quadrant is a busy stop-off for people moving between all the major destinations in Brighton and Hove.

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 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.

Three Jolly Butchers

Close to the North Laine and the Staion but situated away from the main nightlife spots, the Three Jolly Butchers is particularly busy at lunchtimes and early weekday evenings. They serve food (from ciabattas and salads to pub grub like bangers and mash and homemade burgers) seven days a week, with an excellent roast on Sundays. Everything on the menu is freshly made on the premises – the managers also run the adjacent sandwich shop which shares the same name.
