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.

Fortune of War

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.

The Shakespeare's Head

With the sort of friendly, laid-back feel more usually found in an old-school locals’ boozer, yet with a younger crowd and a livelier atmosphere, the Shakespeare’s Head is a gem of a pub situated just off the Seven Dials. They also offer two outsside spaces, benches to the front and an intimate beer garden to the rear.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
