“A seaside pub where you can just be yourself”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

I will admit I've not been here for a while... Until last Friday when a last minute after work drink was organised. We all decided Dr B's would be the best spot.

It's a great seaside pub. Really friendly staff... Yes the sofas are a bit battered and the toilets could do with some work but it is one of my favourite places to go in Brighton. It's completely unpretentious and perfect for a Friday night out or a leisurely Sunday afternoon glass of red. It's a bit like a comfy pair of slippers... You wouldn't want to be without them.

The drinks are good value for it's location, and the Pinot Grigio is reasonably priced and very drinkable.

My visit last Friday just reminded me that we should visit more often!

“Disappointing advertising”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

Like the last reviewer I too was there on an 80s night. Again, signage - on the wall at the time! - and local press clearly stated Happy Hour was in force throughout, but the bar staff were having none of it and were charging full price

“Rip off”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

We went here for the 80's night because it was advertised as happy hour prices all day and night.however when we got there we were told that it wasn't happy hour all day and were charged £4.10 a pint. They had signs outside and in gscene advertising the all day happy hour prices so to not honour this and lure people in under false pretences is discusting. We won't be wasting our money in there again.
