“Amazing Food and Unique Beers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Popped in on a wintry night and I was captured by the lovely rustic atmosphere.
The bar staff were extremly helpful and recomended an Icelandic White Ale which was amazing, the food is very harty - warming and very filling. Looking forward to going again and trying some of the other drinks and the food - YUM

“A moment of calm in busy Brighton. AMAZING BAR!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Northern Lights is a Scandinavian/Nordic themed bar which is a great little spot in central Brighton if you want somewhere less hectic and more chilled out. The staff are friendly and helpful and they serve great food and great drinks as well. Many nice ciders indeed.

“My fave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

I really like this bar. One of my favourites in the uk. As the name suggests, it's a Scandinavian sort of feel. From the look of it I wouldn't say it's specially authentic, but it does have a great selection of vodkas, beers, ciders from up north (including some very good Icelandic beers) and even though I've never eaten there, it does offer food too. Good atmosphere and seating outside if the weather allows.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

We were in Brighton and looked up Scandinavian Restaurants. Having found 'Northern Lights' we were initially a bit disappointed as it looks a little run down. However, we decided to have a quick drink before moving on. We were made to feel so welcome we ended up staying for several drinks and food. The atmosphere was relaxed, the service great and the food delicious. A great find and a hidden gem :-)
