A lively pub with a 150-year pedigree in the heart of Brighton's narrow Lanes
3-4 Meeting House Lane
Bath Arms Brighton
Shepherd Neame ales in a classic Brighton Lanes pub
Bath Arms Brighton is a wood-clad pub with plenty of traditional charm. It offers space for diners and groups, and it pulls in a good crowd most evenings and weekends – when you may find that standing room is all that’s available.
The bar is split in two sections; the main area surrounds a central bar with a scattering of high and low tables and standing space, while a dark and secluded dining-focused area extends back and to the left of the bar.
A good range of food is on offer from light bites, sandwiches and sharing dishes through to mains like steak, burgers, fish and Sunday roasts. The quality of the food is excellent on our visit.
This pub offers a variety of cask options and, while it seems to now be owned by Laine Pub Co, the bar still appears to major on Shepherd Neame favourites. Beer and cider events have been known to pop up here from time to time.
You can’t quite put your finger on it, but Bath Arms Brighton is a charming and really popular classic pub, in a perfect part of town – and doing the obvious things right.
