A Brighton staple when it comes to Guinness, the Fiddler's Elbow is an Irish pub known for their hearty fare, cracking prices and more than sprightly Summer street parties. 

While a cosy little boozer and one of Brighton's smaller pubs, what the Fiddler's lacks in size it makes up for in atmosphere and tradition. Boasting a central island bar surrounding by emerald green booths, the Fiddler's Elbow is adorned in vintage trinkets such retro pipes and dusty class bottles; promising a charming air of the higgledy piggledy, whether you're propped by the bar or nestled in a corner.

Home to one of the cheapest pints of Guinness in the city, this Irish pub know their fare. Pair that with a classic Sunday roast for a mere £8.75 and you're chuckling down The Lanes. Now then, those street parties we mentioned. Host to some of the biggest Summer bashes in the city and live music throughout the year, the Fiddler's Elbow spill out onto the streets when the sun starts to shine. From St Patrick's Day shenanigans to folk festivals, you'll hear Fiddler's in the Summer before you see them.
