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

One of my favourite Brighton pubs, friendly (and good looking!) staff. Really nice drink selection, including really good beers. I haven't tried the food here yet but it always sounds lovely. Plays the best music - including some awesome Abba hits ha ha. Great atmosphere and seems to attract a friendly, hipster crowd.

A nice friendly pub. The staff was very good. There was live music upstairs, do not miss it. A group, Sorgenfri, was excellent. The food was good and prices reasonable.
