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 interiors, The Lion and Lobster stands by its red sea faring 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 a regency restaurant, three bars and two beer gardens, The Lion and Lobster is a pub adventure unto its own.

Whilst know for their 'real beer' and selection of local ales, it's the pub thoroughfare that has people talking about The Lion and Lobster. From their catch of the day to homemade pizza's way in to the night, those of you after a delectable dining experience in cosy surroundings should look no further than this traditional Brighton pub.
