Relaxed Front bar
Built in 1828 - The Southern Belle is situated in the Brunswick Area of Brighton and Hove (one of the most historically preserved Georgian planned communities in the South of England) and arguably the nicest neighbourhood in the Brighton & Hove area.
Packed full of history with a quirky edge - the original back bar serve's up a fantastic selection of craft beers, Sussex ales, cocktails, fine wines and whiskies plus more gins and than you can shake a stick at! In winter you'll find the log fire roaring and in summer the door open wide. A great social space to drink & dine. With an easy atmosphere and a choice of comfortable snug seating, dining/drinking tables for groups of 2-4 and large high window seats (seats 6) - which are perfect to watch the world go by and take a glimpse of the sea. We also offer plenty of take away drinks - perfect for a beach day!. Come and grab a pint in the pub or a takeaway to watch the sun go down on the beach ☀️
