The Robin Hood is my favourite pub in Brighton. It's cosy, friendly and they've got a great wine list. The beers are always good too. They do basic food like pizzas, have a Wii, loads of boardgames and a free computer. It's always been one of my favourites, but I've just found out that they give all their proffits to charity. Sounds like a perfect excuse for another glass of wine! It is a bit out of the way, but well worth checking out.
1-3 Norfolk Place
Just off western road, near norfolk square
The very latest bar to open, formerly known as the Standard. The Bar is now under new ownership and has had a massive investment with full-on club downstairs, comfortable seating throughout, even in the garden, and best yet, you no longer have to trudge miles out to sea to exercise your vocals as Tuesdays are now karaoke night from 8pm to 11pm. Lovely place with a very tastefully themed decor.
Gorgeous food all week and excellent roast on Sundays. Delicious meat, scrummy veg, fabby gravy and good atmosphere combine to make this a Sunday treat!
242 Queens Park Road Brighton
Brighton Station and walk or bus
Massive selection of Belgian beer in bottles and on tap. The food here is excellent, restaurant quality but in a pub, a 'proper' pub at that. This is NOT a bar. Oh, and it has bands/musicians!
105 Southover Street, Brighton
This is a pub which is located near Bardsleys fish and chip shop. It sells Harvey's bitter, which is brewed in Lewes, a market town near Brighton. You can order your fish and chips in the pub and your bitter at the same time.
13 Baker Street, Brighton; tel: 01273 683 173
A cool, relaxed vibe makes our local the best pub in Brighton - good food (yummy meatball sub!), good beer, friendly funny staff, and old school decor with a twist (check out the photo of cabaret girls next to the bar).
67a Upper Gloucester Road
Great pub, nice people, serving big, tasty food. Very informal - sometimes riotous - pub quiz every Thursday night from about nine.
Not been the same since the glory days, but still jolly good fun.
You could also try wandering on through Kemptown past the Hanbury Ballroom and St George's Church, turn right at the end and you're back on the seafront, with great views of the ocean. Or the naturist beach, if that's your bag.
92, St Georges Rd, Kemptown;
tel: 01273 682 259
Pub with "garden" where you can watch the world and its dog walk past of a weekend. Near to all the B&Bs, it can seem a bit intimidating, but don't despair, it's full of friendly locals.
2-3 High Street (on the corner of St James's Street); tel: 01273 681 634
Pub in central Brighton with enough brass and red carpet to still be called a pub - and not a bar. It has a great barn-like seating area, lots of little sections, a function/cocktail room upstairs and a great - and good value - menu. It's fab.
15 Black Lion St, Brighton; tel: 01273 329472
A great pub with a fab patio, that gets very crowded with local people for a good reason. A cheeky (honestly, it is cheeky) menu offering home-cooked food in enormous portions, always with freshly baked bread on the side. I can't tell you how good it is, you just have to try it. It's a Brighton thing.
13 Middle Street, Brighton; tel: 01273710444;
pen: Mon-Sat 12pm-11pm, Sun 12pm-10.30pm
Want a pub filled with chilled out thirtysomethings, with trendy black-clad staff, where more time has been spent describing the food than preparing it and has a wide range of overpriced standard beer? Then don't go to the Iron Duke. Cheap beer, Racing Post-mad landlord, lock-ins, heavy drinkers, lasagne and chips, pool tables, fruit machines, a pint and a fight two pound fifty.
Not your standard Brighton pub.
Waterloo Street near the front
A ridiculously tiny pub that's the home of the Kemptown Brewery. The walls are covered with old newspapers and the beer's terrific. Not only their own beers but other great stuff too; this is where I first sampled Tanglefoot, and I'll never forget it.
