Welcome to Molly Malone's Traditional Irish Pub

Quite recently the people of Brighton were heard crying out for an Irish bar where you could drink, be merry, sing along and dance like you would in your living room.

Imagine if the island bar from Cheers, surrounded by exposed brickwork and wood panelling, stocked to the gills with Irish Whiskey and occasionally live music, dropped into the lap of West Street and opened its doors until 2am... Molly Malone's was born and the people were happy once more.

Offering 'Easy Hours' prices to make that drink after work easier on the wallet, great NUS deals and live sports shown on the screens, not to mention their very own Brighton brewed Molly Malone’s stout and a private hire space downstairs in 'Molly's Bar', this venue brings something else to the city, Sláinte!

Welcome to The Eagle

A stone's throw from the hustle and bustle of the North Laines, The Eagle is one of Brighton's hidden treasures. A laid back, homely little hub of friendliness with a knockout menu filled with hearty fresh food, great ales and plenty of jolly banter.

With a welcoming charm of your favourite village pub and a precious gem of a sun-trap outside to boot, The Eagle has become one of the North Laines favourite pubs.

Whether you fancy a nice pint, a glass or two from our eclectic wine list or a freshly ground coffee, The Eagle is the place to go...

Welcome to The Good Companions

Within sight of Brighton's busy Seven Dials, the Good Companions is a haven of fine food and great beer. Refurbished in the autumn of 2010, this imposing pub has been brought right up to modern standards, inside and out.

Locally-sourced food is prepared by a chef with a background in Michelin-starred restaurants - at reasonable pub prices - and complemented by Sussex ales and world beers.

Upstairs and restaurant and function room make the pub a proper part of the local scene. Add to that a welcoming atmosphere and friendly, knowledgeable service and you have a pub that's really bringing something special to Brighton's pub life.

Welcome to the Hanover

Easily the biggest pub in the area, The Hanover appeals to people not just from the Hanover area but from further field. Enjoy incredible Sunday roasts, served 'from 12.30 until they're gone' - don't leave it too late! - and homemade, authentic and, as the bar staff will tell you, "simply fabulous" pizzas.

Add pub quizzes, a garden and a very child friendly atmosphere into the mix, The Hanover is a wonderfully spacious pub perfect for family roasts, pizzas and beers with a group of mates or just a pint with the newspaper.

With stripped, polished floorboards, leather armchairs and oversized tables there's more than a touch of rustic farmhouse kitchen to this great pub and it's clearly all about bringing together kindred spirits for days and nights of drink, fun and chatter.

Welcome to The Hobgoblin

The new Hobgoblin has certainly not lost its alternative roots and still caters for Brighton's diverse and music loving crowd who like their nights out a little left of mainstream. Arty, tatty, folksy and refreshingly credible, The Hobgoblin swallows neat and polished, chews them up and spits out something insouciant, real and honest.

The Hobgoblin is homey and unpretentious, with lots of wood, brickwork and paisley, plenty of paintings, an abundance of revelry and some amazing food - an absolute winner! However, the real gem here is outside; to claim 'the best beer garden in Brighton' may be seem a bit far-fetched but we can assure you it's completely true.

The vibe is relaxed and and the people are ace, the music chosen by our bar staff is good and the drinks are even better. And you won't find many pubs with a pinball game for a table - even in Brighton!

The Hop Poles

A Brighton institution known for its intimate atmosphere, quirky outdoor terrace and fabulous ever-changing menus that are as incredibly tasty as they are creatively written. Often hand delivered by the chef, you know this is food he is proud of.

Solid pine tables, walls adorned with retro magazine covers, urban art and beer mats and lampshades your granny would be proud of, the Hop Poles manages to perfectly blend the traditional with the kooky and get it spot on.

Only a few hops from the beach or the city centre, this unique little pub with a big personality also boasts a new soundsystem.

Laid back lunch hours by day or upbeat destination venue by night. Or both!

Welcome to The George

Famous over many years for its all-vegetarian menu, a recent upgrade means the George has much more besides the grub going for it.

Keeping a traditional feel, parts of the pub have been opened up without losing the enticing nooks and crannies - plus the secluded beer garden - that make it such an inviting place to enjoy good food and drink.

There's a veggie wine list, veggie lager on tap in the shape of Beck's Vier, and six intriguing cask ales, all brewed in Sussex.
Make sure you come along on Sunday's as there's a pub quiz for those serious thinkers.

Welcome to The Queen's Head

Not your average pub-across-the-road-from-the-station, the Queens Head boasts one of the finest draught beer and cider ranges in Brighton, with not only a choice of local ales but rarities like wheat beers Blue Moon and Grolsch Weizen, Cobra on tap and Czech brew Zatec.

Big screens at both ends of the bar make sure you don't miss any of the action when there's a major sporting event, and Lee's Gourmet Burger menu makes staying on for a bite almost irresistable.

The Queens Head is more than just a place to wait for your train or bus or meet friends - it's a pub worth spending time in.

Visit this pub

Welcome to the Reservoir

The Reservoir is a pub with surprises. At first glance it's a nice, friendly local, the sort of place where you're likely to bump into some characters. Then you notice there's a kitchen on a kind of stage at the back with Thai food busily sizzling away. It does takeaways, too, and while you're waiting for your pad Thai you can indulge yourself in an aperitif. Perfect. And as well as Sussex ales the bar features Zatec Czech beer, flavoured vodkas and a shots menu.

Then there's the downstairs bar, opening out into a surprisingly spacious sheltered beer garden, a precious spot for those balmy summer's evenings.

Brighton's Best Sunday Roast 2012

The Royal Sovereign is one of Brighton's best and most celebrated freehouses. We're proud to offer a delicious and varied locally sourced menu, great entertainment and a welcoming atmosphere from our lovely staff.

We offer an excellent selection of well-kept local Sussex ales , and also have a wide range of Belgium beers for those with differing taste buds. Our wines and lagers cover all the old favourites as well as a few interesting extras. With a wide variety of drinks available, you'll be sure not to go thirsty.

The Sovereign has been famous for its amazing roast dinners for years, and now it is official; this year we are the proud and worthy winners of the 'Brighton's Best Sunday Roast 2012' award. Come in and see why for yourself (booking is advised). In addition, we are now hosting a Steak Night every Thursday, which is proving just as popular. There is no reason for the vegetarians to miss out on the fun, as we of course offer an equally taste veggie option.

Welcome to The Stand Up Inn, Linfield

The Stand Up is certainly a contradictory modern day pub: open plan and airy yet cosy and warm; olde-worlde paraphernalia and original wooden beams exist in contemporary and fresh surroundings; authentic Thai food served alongside a fabulous selection of local ales. And perhaps the biggest contradiction of all: a pub named the The Stand Up yet with ample seating inside and out!

With a great selection of quality drinks (and these guys clearly know their ales), The Stand Up, caked in local history, pulls all the elements of a great little pub together with effortless allure and creates a wonderful environment for taking five, settling into a cushioned window seat, relaxing and watch village life pass you by.

Although if you arrive at peak time - don't be upset if you do have to stand up!

Welcome to The Temple Bar

It could be that the French windows open up the entire pub front sharing the fun bustling atmosphere with the world... It could be the ales, wines and Sunday Pop-up Kitchen roasts… Or it could be the fact that despite how busy it gets you can still usually find a seat… Most likely it's the combination of happy punters, lovely staff and simply great drinks that makes the Temple Bar such an immensely loveable social hot spot.

The Temple Bar serves as Brighton & Hove's destination venue when you want to go somewhere with a 'local' feel but not bang in the city centre.

Perfect for a lazy lunchtime tipple, well-earned post-work drink or a later session with friends before hitting town. But be warned, you may well end up staying all night!

Visit this pub

The Wick Inn

Inside the Victorian green tiling and tinted windows under hanging flower baskets lies a true local pub. Plenty of seating surrounds an island bar where quality drinks are served by some damn fine bartenders. The Wick attracts a lively crowd and the atmosphere never fails to deliver. You'll be grateful for the authentic Thai food menu after a couple of drinks as you realise that you don't need to head right into town to eat!

Perfectly situated just within earshot of Palmeira and only a short hike from the seafront, The Wick offers not only a first class selection of ales, lagers and wines but free WiFi, a little outside seating, a private function room and an array of events including the best pub quiz this side of France.

Besides being a favourite among locals and an ideal meeting place, The Wick Inn is also a destination in itself, attracting both young and old with a bustling, convivial atmosphere that you can rely on every night of the week. Cheers!

The Cow

The Cow - situated in the heart of the Seven dials, just a short hop from Brighton station and a 5 minute walk from the city centre, is a bar like no other in Brighton.

As real ale has seen a resurgance in recent years, The Cow is focusing on the next revolution - craft beers. Our extensive craft beer list, selected from microbrewers from around the world, has been carefully chosen to ensure quality, variety and exceptional taste. With over thirty craft beers, locally brewed real ales, a great cocktail list, premium spirit offering and an excellent wine menu, we are sure there will be something for everyone.

Equal care has been taken by our skilled chefs to ensure our freshly prepared food matches the quality of our drinks, and the traditional pub-inspired menu ticks all the right boxes.

The unique design and decor of The Cow has been chosen to create a flexible and relaxing space, both day times and evenings. During the day our floor to ceiling windows make this a great place to sit back with a nice cup of coffee, or a delicious breakfast or lunch whilst watching the world go by, or perhaps surf the net using our free wi-fi.

The Southover

Wander into this deceivingly big yet cosy pub at the top of Southover Street and you are greeted not only by a warm welcome but some incredible smells from the kitchen.

Previously known as the Pub With No Name, the recently refurbished and re-branded Southover is now a homely pub bringing together quality ales, craft beers and great food in a quirky and relaxed setting.

With several different areas inside over two floors as well as a heated and covered decked courtyard, this lovely local is a destination venue as well as a favourite in Hanover.
