A traditional but uplifted North Laine pub that's heaving on sunny days
109 Church Street
Waggon and Horses Brighton
Traditional with good cask options and a popular suntrap out front
The site of the Waggon and Horses Brighton dates back to 1846, the building became a pub not long after, ironically spending a few years as a gymnasium.
There are plenty of good-sized tables for groups inside and a couple of leather loungers in the corner. The music adds to the easygoing and welcoming atmosphere.
Outside there are plenty of benches, and much of Brighton crams onto the benches outside to catch those all-important rays. When the inevitable British rain does start falling they are well covered with extendable covers too.
Keg craft beers are lacking on the bar at Waggon and Horses Brighton, but they more than make up for this in a decently priced range of cask ales and lagers, as well as tons of liquer and spirit options stacks on the shelves behind the bar staff.
