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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A cosy, relaxed, pub tucked away behind Kemp Town village, the St George's Inn has now been taken over by Steve - formerly of the legendary Shakespeare's Head - ably assisted by Chewie, Beth and Tomme.

Duke of Norfolk

With well-stocked bookshelves, signs and trinkets from bygone eras and a classic noble name (complete with Latin motto), the Duke of Norfolk is bursting with old-school charm. The place has much of the feel and atmosphere of a traditional pub –except, seeing as it's actually the 21st century 'n' all, they also have more modern perks like wi-fi access too. Look out for DJs at weekends and a weekly open mic night.

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.
