The Lion and Lobster


Hailed as one of the oldest and most notable pubs in Brighton, The Lion and Lobster, just shy of the town centre, is a den of renowned grub, cosy nooks and plush, traditional interiors.

A mighty maze of vintage adornments, The Lion and Lobster stands by its red seafaring name on the outside, but inside is a whole other tale to tell. From brass features and rich mahogany period pieces to walls adorned in framed history and roaring real fires throughout, this is a cosy cavern for Brightonians and out of towners the like. Boasting regency dining rooms, two bars and outdoor terraces, The Lion and Lobster is a pub adventure unto its own.

Find a cosy seat in the rabbit warren of nooks and crannies and enjoy a relaxing pint from a selection of local ales or craft beer, a delicious home-cooked meal or both. The Lion & Lobster is also the perfect place for group gatherings – in fact, its magical atmosphere makes it the kind of place you can’t wait to introduce your friends to. Visit the charming and historic pub in the heart of Brighton & Hove and prepare to be enchanted…
