The Garden Bar


If you're looking for a venue with great character and a real 'Brighton feel' without being in the centre of the busy city then you've come to the right place. This charming pub is steeped in history, making it the perfect spot to spend time with family and friends. Whether you're wanting a Sunday roast, cocktails in the sunshine, matchday seats in front of the TV, or are celebrating a special event with up to 250 guests, The Garden Bar has something for everyone.

The beautiful garden comes complete with heated and covered booths, a huge BBQ, and a Tanqueray flower wall for that perfect photo backdrop. The decked terrace and 'apple tree corner' are ideal for group gatherings and outdoor parties (currently up to 30 guests). 

Inside, you'll find roaring open fires in the colder months, 4 TV screens with Sky and BT Sports, cosy corners and a fantastic team who are ready to keep the food and drinks flowing all night long.

There are also several options available for private events, so whether you're getting married, celebrating a birthday or engagement, holding a business meeting or charity event, bringing a new baby into the world, and everything else in between, The Garden Bar can create a night that you won't forget. With space for a marquee in the garden and areas inside for a DJ, live music, dancefloor and photobooth, the possibilities are endless.
