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.

The Lord Nelson Inn, Brighton

On Trafalgar Street – Neither halfway up nor halfway down – is Brighton’s own Harvey’s heaven

The Lord Nelson Inn, Brighton

Nooks, crannies and cask Harvey’s beer aplenty

The Lord Nelson Inn Brighton has never been anything but a pub, and has always had the same name since it was built and opened for ales in the 1850s.

It’s a deceptively large and fresh feeling inside given its age. If you progress beyond the traditional front bar and descend to the open plan ‘lower deck’ there’s a second serving space and large conservatory with plenty of room for multiple groups plus a small but well-decorated little smoking patch.

There is a clear sports angle to The Lord Nelson Inn, with HD screens both front and back and it’s very popular for big football and rugby games.

The most recent addition is the large restaurant space, on the port side (left) of the main bar. The food menu is extensive and ranges from starters, sandwiches and jacket potatoes through to salads, snacks and desserts, all reasonably priced and dare we say ‘cheap-and-cheerful’, so not aimed at the ‘gastro’ market.

There are no less than five cask pumps, and two kegs serving Harvey’s creations at a pretty fair price for central Brighton. There are the typical lager and Guinness options alongside a left-field German lager tap, and plenty of wines, gins and spirits too.

The maritime reference is subtle, and the atmosphere here is comforting – like a good local should be.

The Cleveland Arms Brighton

Independently run by a family who are fans of Harvey’s ale

The Cleveland Arms Brighton is neat and simple with a bright, open-plan layout, pleasant but perhaps lacking in the cosy nooks and corners of a traditional bedded in pub. That said it doesn’t affect the atmosphere as on a busy weekend evening the loyal local following can make this pub feel warm and vibrant.

The menu offers lots of option and prices match the Gastro-pub orientation, which is suggested by the formally laid out dining area in a conservatory section. On our last visit the food here really impressed us on the whole, as it should at premium prices.

The Harvey’s cask beer here tasted great and, though the pub is independent, opting for Harvey’s on the pumps means they’ll get some of their great seasonal rotations. On the taps you’ll find an array of typical lagers and Guinness but nothing you could consider craft.

The Cleveland Arms Brighton feels aimed towards an affluent local audience who might eat out at their local, however it’s certainly a pleasant place to be for a few pints as well.

A community pub combining bedded-in comfort with a leafy courtyard garden

The Crescent, Brighton

A calm and comfortable pub that’s off the beaten track

The Crescent offers some good seating options: the leafy courtyard back garden, the large main bar/restaurant, or perch out front in the dying rays of the afternoon sun.

The main bar area is standard and unfussy, just a wide space, raised to the right, with a combination of cushioned wall benches, tables and chairs and options that cater for large groups, or for couples to settle into. Dogs are very welcome too.

Long Man Brewery ales are almost always available here, and the beers always tastes fantastic. Besides that, options on cask or tap are limited to lagers and Guinness.

The menu at The Crescent offers modern pub fare, burgers and Sunday roasts that people swear by. The burgers are great, and they run a two-for-one deal on Wednesdays between 6pm and 9pm.

It’s quiz night on Tuesdays from 9pm, and you can celebrate that end-of-the-week feeling with Prosecco deals on Friday nights.
