Grand Central

Sitting directly opposite Brighton Station, Grand Central is a busy London-style pub that creates a buzzing atmosphere all day and night and provides perfect stop-off point for travellers to and from the city, as well as a popular haunt for local residents. It serves food seven days a week and boasts a good range of bourbons, wines and real ales among its drink selection, as well as an extensive cocktail menu.

Grand Central

Ancient Mariner

Named for its location on Coleridge Street in Poet’s Corner, the Ancient Mariner is a large, stylish and family-friendly pub with a loyal following of regulars. Sarah and Simon head up a few recent arrivals among the staff, but despite the new faces, the atmosphere and feel remain true to that for which the pub has long been known and loved.

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.

Cobden Arms

Typical back street boozer.   Pool table, dart boards, good selection of draught lagers and  a plasma & large screen showing all major sporting events and Racing UK! Smoking Area, Pool Table, Fruit Machines. .

Xuma

In various places and at various times, Xuma - with an X or a Z - has been the name of a classic Neil Young album, an Aztec god and a Californian beach. Since summer 2006, it has also been the name of the Seven Dials' most characterful bar. Combining gallery and drinking haunt, it's a warm and atmospheric environment, with red velvet seating surrounded on all sides by paintings and photography, much of it locally produced; there is also a second, more intimate seating area downstairs.

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.

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.

The Exchange

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

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.

Bar Lion D'or

Recently refurbished to appeal to a wider market, offering a more relaxed and chilled feel than its previous upmarket wine bar concept.   Lovely ‘sun –trap’ outside to people watch whilst enjoying a cold beer or nice glass of wine.   Stylish but basic bar food on offer all week through.

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.

Doctor Brighton's

Doctor Brighton’s is situated on Brighton seafront, just to the west of the Palace Pier, and offers what is probably the largest selection of spirits in any pub in Brighton. Vodka is the pub’s specialty, maintaining a range of over 100 different vodkas from around the world, with a definite focus on Polish Vodkas. Having a great range of spirits naturally means we are able to produce a fantastic range of cocktails, but we take just as much care with our real ales and lagers.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Coalition

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.

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.

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.

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.

Fountain Head

Just down from Bill's Produce Store, The Fountainhead is a warm and inviting watering hole that combines classic pub features - exposed brickwork, wooden floors and a log fire - with a contemporary sense of light and space. It caters for all comers, from regulars to locals, and students to young professionals - and several decades beyond. As well as a superb food menu, they offer a strong drink selection (two real ales and Westons on tap, as well as a good range of spirits and shooters).

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.

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. Look out too for the acoustic music night, entitled Gone Fishing, every Sunday, and the monthly Late Night Lounging session featuring big-name London DJs.

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.

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.

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.
