As one of Brighton's oldest boozers, The Lion and Lobster is an atmospheric little spot to spend Valentine's Day. Strewn with fairy lights and lots of cosy little corners, snuggle up and enjoy pints of real ale and a cracking selection of gastro pub food.

If you and your love adore a good tipple or two, then head to BeAtOne in The Lanes for their delicious and huge range of alcoholic drinks. From margaritas through to Old Fashioneds, there's something to set any mood, and what's more you won't break the bank.
Take inspiration from Ghost and get on the potter's wheel this Valentine's Day. Taking place in the North Laine Pub and Brewery, Pop Up Pottery is a great activity to do with a partner; unleash your inner artist and create everything from homewares through to jewellery.

Look, we get it, not everyone wants to pay through the nose for a three course meal and tipples on any other day in Brighton, especially not Valentine's; but if you're still looking to take your partner somewhere cool, chilled out and brimming with adorable vintage wares, the basement galleon snug at The Black Dove is just the destination and it's darn romantic; just don't tell them that.
Luxurious cocktails and sumptuous interiors characterise this fine eatery. Those of you looking to indulge your partner in some of the finest cocktails in the city should make haste for the Brighton beachfront and enjoy the romantic views of the shore whilst supping on some of their creative concoctions.
Charming British style fare, an intimate little restaurant and cocktails out in their botanical courtyard, it only takes three things for The Coach House to steal your heart. Found in the very heart of The Lanes, The Coach House is a romantic little destination where couples can indulge in the spoils of each other's company, and still be able to hear each other whisper sweet nothings.
Not all Valentine's Day dinners need to be about through the nose dishes and modernity. Those of you with a penchant for something a little more down to earth should most certainly try Bill's. When the sun goes down and the lights begin to sparkle, this deli-restaurant turns into a charming little retreat, brimming with locally sourced chow and sumptuous bottles of wine.
If you're heading down to Brighton this Valentine's Day and are looking to treat that lucky someone to a little seaside fare, you'll be hard pushed to find anywhere better for seafood chow than the heralded Riddle & Finns. From scallops and locally caught fare to some of the most indulgent bottles of Champagne in the city, this dimly lit and wholly romantic restaurant in Brighton is coming up trumps when it comes to atmosphere.
Whilst some dates may be wary of a basement endeavour on Valentine's Day, we reckon that this one is a rather romantic bet. Saunter on down to the basement bar at Koba where a bucket load of mood lighting, delicate twinkles and sumptuous cocktails await. And heck, if you're feeling hella fancy this Valentine's Day, you can also order dinner while you're at it you class A swooner you!
