Winter is here and while we may not be able to frolic in the sea with an ice cream for a few months, that doesn’t mean that Brighton is no longer anything to do in Brighton. It’s time to hit the streets and explore some of the cosy pubs in Brighton.
Winter is the perfect excuse to snuggle up next to an open fire while enjoying craft ales and home-cooked food. Brighton has many great pubs, but below is a list of some of the cosiest.
Nestled in the heart of North Laine, The Dorset has been going strong for around 200 years. After all the eclectic bustle of North Laine, The Dorset provides some good old fashioned English comfort, with good food, good beer and a great atmosphere. It’s a great place to while away an afternoon people watching.
Also in North Laine, The Lord Nelson is one of the oldest pubs in Brighton. It has not one, but two fireplaces, for double the comfort and is a favourite of locals. It makes a great meeting place to break up a shopping trip. It is well stocked with local ales and great wines and the food is always perfect. The Lord Nelson has a friendly atmosphere with a good mix of people.
The Coach House is situated in the Lanes and provides a warm welcome and a roaring fire on a cold winter day. It’s open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, so you could happily settle in for the day. The food is delicious.
Tucked away up a side street close to the seafront, the Lion and Lobster is an iconic Brighton pub that never disappoints. It has endless nooks and crannies where you can tuck yourself away on a cold winter day and enjoy their home-cooked food.
The Fountain Head Inn will welcome you with a cosy wood burner and a glass of mulled cider in winter to take away the chills. With good food and beer, this pub has everything you could need, along with a selection of books and board games to keep you entertained as you get cosy.
