Caxton Arms Brighton

Shepherd Neame beers and bar billiards by Brighton Station

The Caxton Arms Brighton is cheerful and traditional with two main rooms that share a central serving bar.

A bookcase festooned with travel books from all over the world, board games, lego and bar billiards offer some differentiating character and entertainment.

The garden is awash with colour and humour, featuring a giant Brighton mural against one wall and a drinking cave under the balcony and staircase.

The bar is focused on Shepherd Neame, including Whitstable Bay, Sam Adams and their Bear Island brand of keg options. If you’re peckish choose from tasty-sounding morsels, including burgers and a ‘Roasts in Brighton’ award-winning Sunday dinner.

The garden at the Caxton Arms is deceptively spacious, with long bench and table layouts that can accommodate a number of groups. Then there’s a private function room attached for parties needing something more secluded.
