Relaxed Front bar

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 and window seats that are packed full of light (with a glimpse of the sea). We also offer plenty of take away drinks (and boast our very own canning machine) - perfect for a beach day! We're also excited to announce we now have Beavertown Brewery's delicious Neck Oil & Gamma Ray Craft Ale on draught at The Southern Belle. Come and grab a pint in the pub or a takeaway to watch the sun go down on the beach ☀️

We're extremely dog friendly and have won some amazing awards over the years.

“2018 Winner of Best Roast in Brighton”, top 3 “Most Dog Friendly” and top 10 “Best Pub” at the Bravo Brighton Restaurant Awards 2018 which is voted for by Brighton and Hove public. Didn’t we do well!


Our Southern Belle Kitchen is headed up by the talented Ethicurean Guild. We've got small plates, big plates & burgers plus a whole load of tasty tipples and friendly atmosphere!
