Description: NORTHERN LIGHTS - BRIGHTON Scandinavian bar/restaurant Northern Lights is a one of a kind independent Scandinavian bar and restaurant in Brighton! We serve delicious, filling, home-made Scandinavian dishes courtesy of Kitchen Kultur; from Swedish meatballs to flæsk (crispy pork belly), to roots fritters and falafel alongside a tasty range of burgers and light bites, we've got you covered! Look out for our special Sunday lunch menu too! Even the bread is baked right here :-) On the drinks menu you'll discover unique flavours in the form of fisherman's friend, licorice, mint and pine tar shots in addition to two dozen flavoured vodkas! We also have a wide range of exotic Scandinavian ciders, beers, herbals teas and coffees. All of our wine, save for one, is vegan. Upstairs we have a FREE function room for birthdays, weddings and other dining get togethers! For creative people, we also offer the upstairs as a free venue in which to hold exhibitions (photography, paintings, graphic design, miscellaneous...) simply ask at the bar or message us if you're interested!

Tucked in a corner just off the sea front, an atmospheric bar full of quirky characters. Gets very crowded at weekends but that's testament to its popularity!

Really interesting food and great life music. Friendly staff made for a great evening. The Lady Birds were playing the night we visited and they were excellent.

Visited the pub with a few friends. Staff were very unfriendly. Ordered food and it arrived luke warm/cold and my food even had a couple of hairs in which were definitely not mine since I have no hair!
We complained to the manager who was very rude and unhelpful and told us they never get complaints and we were just being very fussy since we probably had just left the food to go while talking!
I have since heard they might be loosing their licence which to be honest if this is the case it probably is not a bad thing as the pub is a great little venue but the staff and management do need a shake up!

Very relaxed atmosphere, comfortable upstairs seating with a bit more space than in the bar area. Good choice of authentic food and drinks.
