A very popular pub that has it all, and delivers for beer variety
24 Sillwood Street
The Lion and Lobster, Brighton
The life and soul of Hove’s backstreets
The Lion and Lobster manages to be a backstreet local, yet buzzes with energy. Traditional, but progressive. A restaurant and a football pub, boasting three floors, six screens, a restaurant, and nooks and crannies in abundance. Oh, and a two-level terrace floor and mezzanine with outdoor seating, complete with TVs and a small bar as well.
The variety of ales and designer beers on offer is very pleasing, with some obscure options as well as solid local brewers represented.
Live music, open mics and the large Guinness mural outside mean that often the atmosphere and spirit of the pub seems more akin to Dublin’s Temple Bar than Brighton beach. It’s pokey, popular and loud, with usually a good craic.
The Lion and Lobster is a place you can get together with friends, enjoy a great meal with excellent beer, watch the football and enjoy the sunshine, all from one seat. It’s family friendly and very popular – so pre-booking, especially on Sundays, is recommended.
