The World’s End Brighton

A youthfully spirited pub and a fun place to see in an apocalypse or two

You wont miss the black-painted exterior  of The World’s End, complete with an angry Kraken rum octopus flailing its tentacles across the front facade.

Inside is open-plan and spacious, perfect for larger groups with canteen-style tables and chairs to right and long benches to the left. The atmosphere has a great buzz and we’ve noticed they’re not shy about turning the volume on the music.
The tables out front are popular at night and there’s a small covered decking space to the rear.

The bar has a host of craft beers lined up taproom style and rotated regularly, but there’s another side to the World’s End Brighton that adds to the fun and games.

The green booths opposite the bar are VR suites run by IPG. A choice of worlds are available to blast, shoot and fly in, all within in safe reach of a pint.

Upstairs are some more traditional arcade games and a fairground-style remote control race track. If that’s not enough, on Tuesdays Gaming Retro-bution set-up a library of retro games machines, and there’s a Monday pub quiz.

Food is provided by Wolfsmouth burger kitchen and we have been quite satisfied with them on past visits.

 
 

North Laine Brewhouse Brighton

North Laine Brewhouse Brighton

A cavernous pub providing fun and top quality beers, some brewed on site

North Laine Brewhouse, Brighton

A pub and microbrewery that’s fun, without compromising on quality

The cavernous North Laine Brewhouse is perfect for big groups, with its beer hall offering space for even the largest gang of friends.

The front section has a characterful traditional feel. Towards the back things take on a playful and colourful sense of humour.

The long bar boasts cask options and a multitude of taps with an emphasis on craft keg beer, some sourced incredibly locally, as the shiny tanks behind the bar are not just for show. The working microbrewery here creates small runs of experimental concoctions dreamed up by the great Laine Brew Co team, only available here at the bar and at selected Laine pubs. The team don’t compromise on the quality of beer served.

Events at North Laine Brewhouse include two quiz nights, ping pong, DJs, a Saturday bottomless brunch and axe throwing. You feel this selection probably targets a younger crowd.

The menu is a modern twist on pub grub: burgers, sharing plates and wings. But on Sundays it’s back to the tried-and-true with excellent roasts, with veggie and vegan varieties available – all served from the built-in ice cream van kitchen, naturally.

It's fun and games at Brighton Bier's Freehaus with lots of keg, cask and bar games

Freehaus Brighton

A loungey pub specialising in a unique collection of bar games

The Freehaus,​ just off Elm Grove in Brighton, is a two-floor bar: upstairs a cosily lit comfortable pub space, downstairs a dedicated games area and good-sized pub garden.

There’s an impressive variety of options for both keg and cask; and this being part of the Brighton Bier empire, their own excellent brews feature heavily on taps and pumps but guest brewers are also rotated.

There’s a bit of an American theme running throughout, from the signage on the walls and the regular Whiskey Preachin DJ night, to the kitchen offering burgers, fries and associated sides.

The pub itself would be a great place to go as a pub in it’s own right, but Freehaus Brighton then throw in a unique downstairs games areainto the mix. We’re in danger of gender stereotyping, but it is the ultimate man-cave down there with foosball, toad, an arcade game and a couple of dart boards on offer in a spacious and stylish environment.

This pub is a great hangout for all ages but seems to have captured the local student clientele for good reason.

The Western's disney-esque sign is a beacon of neon hope for a variety of musical entertainment

The Western, Brighton

There’s entertainment and great keg on tap at this city-centre tap bar

The deceptively spacious inside of The Western on the edge of Churchill Square is mostly exposed brick, decorated with arty murals and random signage. Combined with the big neon star behind a bar covered in stickers it has a trendy city night-club vibe.

During warm days the side windows are thrown open and the bar extends its presence into the street, with DJs playing to drinkers and passing shoppers.

There is a packed monthly calendar  of events: late-running weekly themed nights, regular funk and soul DJs and live music residencies as well as pop-up events in the event room upstairs.

On the bar there are lagers, cider and craft pale ales with a leaning towards Laines beers, as this is a Laines pub. There’s only the one cask pump though – perhaps hinting at The Western’s focus on a younger crowd.

A raucous open-plan space for socialising, and plenty of tap options

The Hare and Hounds Brighton

A popular pub with loads of space and a great beer selection

As you enter through the corner doors at The Hare and Hounds Brighton there’s a real feeling of open-plan space here.

A wide central bar is surrounded a variety of padded communal seating and a combination of period features, industrial lighting and a vast amount of bare brickwork. The garden is nicely decked, and boothed in a way that makes excellent use of a tight space.

There is an impressive number of taps on offer alongside three cask pumps, and plenty of lager and cider options to boot. The rotating craft beer offerings are excellent as well, though the prices can sting with some guest beers.

The kitchen has operated many different menus over recent years but now seems to be quite traditional, with crowd-pleasing big and small plates, ciabattas and burgers. The Sunday roasts here are pretty reliable.

The bartenders at The Hare and Hounds seem to like their 1990s/2000s indie and rock hits. And if that’s not enough entertainment, there are also regular DJs, retro gaming and live music on the calendar.
