A traditional venue with a little Kemptown bohemian flair, Sidewinder is a lively and fun filled pub in Brighton boasting a fantastic soul food menu and traditional Sunday feasts from Too Darn Smokin' not to mention some of the best beer gardens in the city. Wash the delicious food down with one of the many craft beers on offer or one of their famous big gins.

Whilst it may boast all your regular pub interiors, there's a few more charming oddities that you might expect from this watering hole in Brighton. From locally curated pieces of art to mis-matched vintage furniture, there's always something unique to discover at Sidewinder. Take in a little Brighton sunshine in not one, but two of Sidewinder's luscious beer gardens, Tanqueray gin retreat included.
