Three Jolly Butchers Brighton

Compact and popular with the after-work crowd

The bar of the Three Jolly Butchers Brighton is split into two halves, with the bar room up front and centre offering standing space, a deceptively roomy seating area at the back, and a little secret garden for extra measure.

The main buzz usually happens at the bar, where the after-work commuter crowd congregate, so that at busy times you may find yourself fighting your way through before you can locate a free seat.

The bare brickwork and light wood gives the 3JBs a comfortable modern feel. The ‘snug’ can be hired for private functions, there’s a Thai menu of food on offer, and sport is regularly on the screen in the back room (Instagram reveals that they are Seagulls bonkers here).

Alongside the typical lager/cider brands is a decent rotation of cask and keg options at Three Jolly Butchers, though we found that any craft keg was priced at a premium that makes you think twice.
