The Dorset photo


Happily perched upon the crossroads of Gardner Street and North Road, The Dorset stands as a friendly watering hole that has quenched the thirst of Brighton for nearly two hundred years. Relaxed, welcoming and full of character, The Dorset boasts a scattering of mismatched chairs, a roaring fire in the winter and street side tables for catching some rays when the weather is behaving itself. 

Serving up a delightful selection of fresh seafood dishes (try the Moules Marinieres, made with coconut milk, lemongrass and chilli, or opt for their homemade breaded fish fingers or their smoked fish pie) alongside a mean Sunday Roast and a 'mini' version for the young 'uns. Looks like it's not just the thirsty of Brighton that flock to The Dorset to have their needs met. Sip on a well priced cocktail as you sit and watch the world go by; whatever the weather, this bar in Brighton attracts a diverse clientele, from local residents and shoppers to theatre goers and day trippers.
