Is the sun a little too bright for you today? Well no fear, take off those shades and descend into the dimly lit depths of these coastal caves along Brighton's beach front. Order a greasy, cheese-slathered burger and soak up the remaining poisons in your system in this quirky cavern. And if you're the queasy kind, head outside and grab a picnic table and let the fresh sea breeze and stunning sea views knock you back into shape.
At times like these another pint is necessary to save your hungover soul. The North Laine Pub And Brewery is one of the better choices for one of Brighton's freshest pints as they brew plenty of their tipples onsite.
Committed to craft beers and fascinated by all things New York, the team behind East Street Tap offer Brighton's beer connoisseurs a chance to try the best brews that America has to offer. With a team of chefs offering guests a selection of hearty New York-inspired dishes, guests can beat their hangover by tucking into a salted-beef bagel while sipping on an ice-cold beer produced by the likes of the Brooklyn, Stillwater and the Dogfish Head breweries.
Sometimes in life there are only two things that can deal with your hangover: beer and Mexican food. Fortunately for the sensitive souls of Brighton, The Hare and Hounds has both in abundance. La Choza are cooking up their delicious nibbles in the kitchen while the pub serves up a whole host of delicious dinners to satiate your rumbling stomach.
With a charming sun-trap of a terrace and plenty of hearty plates, Grand Central is a premium choice for blasting away the cobwebs. Sit and soak up sunshine, glug a pint of their carefully chosen ales, munch on the reasonably priced food and wait for that hangover to sling its hook. Plus the venue is conviently located close to the trains station, should you need to leave Brighton after last night's shenanigans.
There are two types of people with a hangover in Brighton, those that whine after a fry-up, and those who know what's good for them by getting a slap up British meal. Known for some of the most infamous pub lunches this side of the shore, The Basketmakers Arms know how to wile that hangover away with their traditional interiors and a more than wholesome, if not subtly gastro, menu of pub grub.
If there's a ringing in your ears after a night out in Brighton, it's your conscience telling you to head to Bill's for breakfast. With its British deli charm and cosy interiors, Bill's won't batter you with bright lights on the worst day possibly ever, they'll hug you into a hangover-lull with their hearty selection of slap-up brunch courses, whether you have a hankering for posh poached eggs or top-notch rashers.
You got a bit footloose and fancy free last night now didn't you? Regale tales of last night's antics in one of the best hidden beer gardens in the city where the sweet smell of sea air, and the rustling up of some premium beef patties will soothe your aching, hungover soul. Dripping in sauce and smothered in cheese, the beef burgers at Neighbourhood and the slick, cool community will do you the world of good.
Whilst some may dabble in the realm of grease after a night out in Brighton, some of us just favour a good ol' cup of tea and a bloody Mary when the moment suits. One of the most dapper little tea spots in Brighton, Metrodeco is a heart warming escape from your hangover, boasting a sweet selection of tea and an even sweeter selection of cocktails.
Suitably big plates of food for a suitably big hangover. The Cow have got you my friend, they've got you. A wholesome restaurant bar in Seven Dials, you'll be seeing that hangover away in suburbia. Whether you fancy a pale ale or a much needed bloody mary, The Cow will whip up a sweet selection of post-night out refreshments before you plough your way through some suitably British fare; burgers and roast dinners galore.
You sir look like you need some fresh air in your lungs after another debauched night out in Brighton. If the sun just so happens to be shining on the day, take your hungover butt to The New Club for some fresh sea air, a slap up breakfast and some pretty potent bloody marys. Nab yourself a table outside and watch that hangover sail out to sea thanks to The New Club's sweet New York take on brunch.
You look like you need a really dark room and an even stronger drink. While it might be hard to tear yourself away from that ketchup stained bedroom, The Black Dove have too good a hangover retreat to shy away from. Head on down to their dimly lit basement snug, bloody Mary in hand and wave goodbye to the hangover you once knew, and yes, hated; revelling in sweet vintage wares instead.
There are three simple pleasures that can drag anyone out of their hangover woes: A great beer garden, some sweet pub grub and a hearty gallon of ale.

We mean, come on, what more could you need on a hangover than good companions anyway?
