Comfy, cosy and bringing one of the best matchday atmospheres in town, this great Brighton boozer is a one-stop shop for excellent food, a strong craft beer selection, a gorgeous garden, and a very good option if you're into dog spotting.

You can't move in Font Brighton without coming face to face with a screen. This popular haunt is not only known for its non-stop drinks deals and big plates of globally-inspired snacks, but they also have great vibes and music for post-match antics with pals.

New Unity

With ten screens, you'll be hard-pushed to find a game that's not being shown at New Unity. Should there be something not advertised on their lineup though, get in touch with the team and they'll provide you with your own space - it's like your living room, but better.

The Exchange

A good old fashioned real ale pub in Hove, it's only natural that, alongside tasty grilled grub and slap-up roasts, you can find most football fixtures being shown here. Thought it couldn't get any better? The Exchange also boasts a giant projector screen and 3pm - 8pm happy hour.
