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.

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.

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.

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.

Saint George's

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. Stuffed full of memorabilia, and also boasting the coveted green sofa, everyone's welcome in this "cast iron killer local" (The Brighton Source). A selection of well-kept ale is served on rotation, alongside the ever-popular Harveys.

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.

Kulture

Kulture is one of Brighton's favourite late night venues with live DJ's 5 nights a week from 7pm until 3am.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
