The Roundhill Brighton

A bright and pleasant place to be that’s vegan through and through

Since opening in 2018 The Roundhill has quickly cemented itself as a community favourite despite being up the road from some other very popular and established pubs.

You don’t have to be vegan to enjoy the soft and relaxing ambience of the wood aesthetic, the many plants scattered around and the other random memorabilia on the walls or hanging from the ceiling. But if you are vegan then the food will impress, their roasts are very highly recommended.

The drinks menu may not be extensive, but we hugely appreciate tthat they support a healthy range of local Sussex brewers on tap and cask, such as Gun, Bedlam and Franklins, and make sure all of them are vegan also.

There are a couple of outside booths and tables to make the most of afternoon sun, but no garden space. The pub is very dog friendly, child friendly and generally all welcoming.

The staff have always had a genuinely great attitude here and it’s a pleasure everytime we’ve walked through the corner doors of The Roundhill Brighton into this airy vibe.

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.

Unbarred Taproom Brighton

A modern and popular taproom serving some of Brighton’s freshest creations

UnBarred Brewery and Taproom in Brighton occupies a hidden-away refurbished backstreet warehouse just off Preston Circus, just five minutes from Brighton Station, so no excuses for not giving it a look.

The taproom is a clean, modern space that feels spacious as well as functional. You need only stretch out your hand to touch the tanks that produce the ale you’re drinking.

Outside there’s a courtyard and the few covered benches with overhead heat lamps that make this a useable communal space all year round. In the summer the big French windows are thrown wide open. Guest food stalls regularly pop up here on weekends.

Beer wise you can expect a whole range of UnBarred’s creative, boldly flavoured and sessionable brews. They very much focus on keg, and you won’t get it fresher anywhere else. Take-out cans are also available from the well-stocked fridge.

The brewers themselves are around on ‘Meet the Brewer’ Wednesdays to chat to patrons, so come down to the Brewery and Taproom and get your geek on with the creators themselves.

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.

Open House Brighton

Family friendly, and a garden to lose yourself in for hours

Run by Laine Pub Co, Open House Brighton offers three large homely rooms, cosily lit, tastefully decorated and a just a tad eccentric throughout. For instance the main bar area features a huge street-lamp style chandelier which presides spectacularly over the main serving area.

There are Brighton-esque quirks that combine eclectic modern art with comfy leather seating and dusty old books. The bedecked tropical wilderness that is the garden, with its various heated ‘pods’, make it accessible all year round.

Beer options include cask, keg and big-brand names, with lots of Laine’s Brewery favourites included.

Open House is dog friendly and child friendly (until 8.30pm), and there’s ample space for families and groups to enjoy a meal together in comfort.

Food is definitely a key focus at Open House Brighton, with a range of snacks, sandwiches, burgers and pubby mains – including vegan and gluten-free options.
