The Lion & Lobster
One of the oldest pubs in Brighton and Hove, The Lion & Lobster is a three-storey restaurant located just a stone’s throw from the seafront. Its unique, eclectic decor – with various fascinating curios adorning the walls – lends the venue a trendy feel, while its laid-back atmosphere ensures that guests feel perfectly at ease.
The kitchen team works closely with local suppliers to secure the best ingredients for every dish, and each meal is freshly prepared to order. There’s a range of menus to suit every occasion, whether you’re popping in for a quick snack or celebrating a special event with a full three-course meal. The pub menu is ideal for casual dining and offers a variety of classics such as beer-battered haddock and chips, and homemade pizza. There’s also a selection of bar snacks available, ranging from spicy harissa chicken wings to marinated olives.
Alternatively, those dining in the restaurant can select from the à la carte or the set menu, which offers two courses for £20 or three for £25. The baby artichoke and mushroom risotto is deliciously creamy and satisfying, while the Sussex beefburger is perfectly juicy and comes with hand-cut chips, salad and tomato chutney. Those stopping by in the evening can also peruse the late-night menu, and the chef’s sharing bowls are ideal for enjoying with drinks.
