You needn't wander too far from Brighton train station to discover boozy based retreat, Grand Central. A renowned city boozer found at the entrance of the train station, Grand Central has a few hidden treats to uncover. 

Traditional, historic in its threads and charming, Grand Central boasts the olive hues, gold tones and period features that any pub patron would gladly acknowledge. Popular with those vying for a little Vitamin D, Grand Central also boast a somewhat secretive rooftop terrace for those that manage to find it. If the rooftop terrace wasn't treat enough, Grand Central are also home to the heralded Nightingale Theatre where arts shows brought to you by Steven Brett reign supreme. 

From it's place as a top notch rooftop destination and sports pub to locals getting in on their hearty pub fare (such as a stonking Sunday treat in the shape of their £9.95 roast), Grand Central is heralded among the local cavorting crowds. And what with Grand Central spinning their own selection of Motown tracks, you'll be shimmy shaking your way to the pumps in no time, be it for dinner and drinks alike. 

Upstairs at the Grand Central is The Nightingale Room - a venue in its own right containing a stunning gin bar and a theatre that plays host to top-calibre plays, music and comedy events right through the year. You can even hire the venue for private parties.

Grand Central - Brighton Pub Review

Fresh under the wing of Great Escape, and nursing a half-hangover courtesy of Horatio's half-price pier drinks come sundown, nothing could have been more tempting than boozer bites. Newly owned, with interiors updated and a menu that harked more of...

Great craft beer selection. Lovely function room upstairs with bar and proximity to station is useful for party guests! Really nice restaurant area with a decent menu choice. No TVs though.

Really love their starters. You could pretty much get away with the welsh rarebit as a main it was that good. Would only recommend clearly defining the dining area as it felt a bit busy and squashed

really good roof terrace (if you can ever find a seat in the summer that is), do some really good late night parties too if you head down at the right time
