White Rabbit

Sure, we could sit here and use a horrific amount of Alice in Wonderland references, but why fall down that rabbit hole and ruin it all? A charming little North Laine boozer, White Rabbit is brimming with vintage regalia, retro wares and a crackin' outdoor space to enjoy classic pub grub.

The Dorset

The Dorset on North Road is something of a staple for punters around the town. Having originally opened nearly 200 years ago, this watering hole is whipping up tasty brews and seafood dishes, all while providing sun-seekers with streetside tables. So, who's getting the first round?

Earth & Stars

Serving up hearty vegan fare, from a BBQ jackfruit pie to a hazelnut, pistachio and cranberry nut roast, Earth & Stars is a great bar for foodies. Come rain or shine, be sure to grab the gang for a pint in the cosy indoor space or head out to the stunning beer garden for summertime sips.


Alternative drinkers should make a bee line for Hobgoblin, especially if they're hoping to get their mitts on some of the finest bevvies or grub. From tables made out of retro games consoles and walls decked out in retro posters, to a top-notch beer garden, this spot is bound to impress.

The Black Horse

One of our top picks for pubs in Brighton, The Black Horse is a much-loved North Laine boozer touting a great deal of grub. Whether you're heading in for a Sunday lunch or for the awesome drinks deals, it won't fail to hit the spot. Sports fan? Watch the big fixtures on the HD screens.
