We arrived one Sunday night gone 11pm very weary and hungry after travelling back from France. We had tried to find somewhere to eat, but to no avail, so we decided to go into Northern Lights for a drink and asked if they knew of a 'Take-Away'. They apologised that their kitchen was no longer open, but if we fancied... More

We were taken here on a ghost walk to sample the fisherman's friend vodka shots - warms you up and clears the sinuses too. Next day we went back to sample the glocki (mulled wine) and mulled cider. Didn't eat but the menu looked good so will go back another day.

Go here! Great atmosphere in the heart of Brighton, not eaten here but good for a drink. Something different from the pub chains

The food is great and the portions are very decent, there is a good selection of drinks and although it is slightly overpriced, I think the good atmosphere is worth it.

After a very "foodie" week in Brighton recently, Northern Lights was the highlight at the end. Everything about it was enjoyable, friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, amazing elderflower cider, and the best meal of the week. If I lived nearer I like to think this would become my go-to pub.

We came here and had a glass of wine and a soft drink. Were going to eat but everything was "sticky", like they had not cleaned up from the night before. Glasses not very clean. More of a bar than anything else. Sort of quirky. Probably fun if going out for a stag or hen do but not for lunch.... More

Just can't find fault in anything about this place. Others may go and not enjoy the unpretentious charm of the food but it was tasty and superb value for money. There was some interesting alcohol and I liked the people who served us. I will go back happily when next in Brighton.

Great little gem tucked in next to the Lanes parking garage right near the seafront. Perfect place for my mum-in-law and I to escape the horrible weather while the rest of the family braved the wind and rain just to say they walked on Brighton Pier. I had just gotten back from Iceland the day before so was thrilled to... More
