Ladies Mile Patcham

A charming and welcoming art deco pub hiding in the Brighton burbs

The curved frontage and sparkly columned entrance of Ladies Mile Patcham is inviting and with a touch of fun and a colourful bench seating space on the forecourt overlooking the green opposite would be just the ticket in summer.

Inside you are met by a fine looking and obscenely long curved bar and there’s a distinctly art-deco theme. The lighting, period ceiling and curvature of the bar all give off some very 1920/30s art deco vibes, and it’s characterful rather than dated.

The pub is split into 3 main spaces; the big central bar with spacious booth seating, some high tables and a TV in the corner, a large games room to the left with ample space for a pool table, a darts board and a few high tables, and to the right a space perhaps more focussed on eating with dining tables set out for larger groups.

We counted 6 cask pumps and if just half of them are stocked with different options, that’s still decent choice. Other than that the options are focussed on global brand lagers, ciders and Guinness.

Tisbury’s kitchen run the food at Ladies Mile Patcham and offer a good range of pub snacks, burgers, pubby mains and desserts that are priced fairly and gastro expensive.

Haus On The Hill Brighton

A classic but contemporary 2 storey pub run by Brighton Bier

Upon entering this wide and wood clad space you immediately meet the bar with it’s huge array of options that fill the full width of the bar and continue around the corners, so we’ll start there.

Being a Brighton Bier run establishment there’s an excellent array of 5 cask ales and, for a tucked away local, a jaw dropping 15+ taps. Much of these are produced not far away at the marina by the Brighton based brewer, but there’s plenty of other great local options as well as a Bavarian guest named Rothaus, a small brewery in Southern Germany that Brighton Bier love so much they’ve installed their big branded tap serving their Pilsner and Wiess beers.

The decor is unfussy and warm touches of modern colour to keep things contemporary, but enough retained classic pub charm.  If you don’t want to mingle around the bar then to it’s right there is a side room and elevated seating space that feels a little bit more away from the action if you want your own corner.

Through the main bar there’s a rear yard with some wooden booths which provided shelter in bad weather, whereas upstairs you’ll find another decked seating area that catches the sun and a whole other bright indoor seating space as well.

With a stonkingly good beer selection, a pub as nice as this is well worth scaling any hill.

The Park Crescent Brighton

A Hall and Woodhouse connected local with a charming back garden

In a quiet crescent shaped backstreet sits The Park Crescent Brighton, easily missed if you don’t know it’s there, but a classic local to many.

The pub is charming and traditional, with wooden furniture, wooden floors, and a sleek central wooden bar which stocks many of the Hall and Woodhouse favourites in the Badger Beer range across 4 cask pumps and a tap. Other big brand largers and ciders are available.

The garden is a lovely waled off leafy retreat at the rear, bigger than it looks with a good number of tables spread out across the patio, some of which are under cover.

A good looking menu of pub faves is available and roasts are served on Sundays.

The Park Crescent Brighton claims to host the ‘best music quiz in Brighton’ which runs on the first Wednesday of each month, this must be put to a test at some point.
A definite unique quirk of the pub is it’s pinball machine. We can’t think of anywhere other than Dead Wax Social where you can get your pinball fix and a pint in Brighton.

Sidewinder Brighton

Arguably one of the best pub gardens in Kemptown

Located on the cusp of Kemptown, Sidewinder Brighton is a modern black fronted pub with a reputation as a fun and vibrant drinking location.

The wide wooden bar space you enter is filled with a combination of tables, chairs and benches and decorated with smatterings of quirky art, signage and memorabilia. This massive space stretches down beyond the bar to 2 more large seating areas where there is tons of room for even the biggest of groups to get together.

The garden is where this pub really shines though. With an astroturfed rear and side garden offering a massive amount of seating options at tables, on benches and in heated booths, it’s a great location any time of year but especially popular in Summer.

As Sidewinder Brighton is a Laines pub, Laines Brew Co beer is always found here alongside a good rotation of local brewers and your usual lager suspects.

Martha Gunn Brighton

A student pub, with lots of cask options… yeah really!

This off the beaten track student favourite takes it’s name from the famous Brighton resident and dipper, who became somewhat of a local legend for simply operating one of Brighton’s many bathing booths in the 18th century.

The Martha Gunn Brighton pub itself doesn’t date back as far as it’s namesake and while there are elements of a traditional pub around, the vibe is pretty modern, with a highly polished wooden bar, trendy lighting and a bright red pool table in an alcove.

For a student pub the drinks options veer suprisingly towards the old-school, with 4 cask pumps, yet only one tap dedicated to something that’s not from a global lager brand, on last visit Gun Brewery‘s Spin Drift IPA.

The garden is pleasant and spacious with benches spread out from one another. There are heated booths on the top decked area and even a childs play area in the bottom corner.

There’s a semi-operational piano (we checked) and the pub run a host of music nights, comedy and quizes to entertain students and locals alike. When the student’s aren’t all here throughout the summer Martha Gunn Brighton is a really relaxed pub to be in.
