Welcome

Doctor Brighton’s is the City’s most treasured secret. A mixed Pub that is pretty much an institution in itself. Its one of the oldest seafront Pub’s in Brighton and has probably one of the best locations out of them all. With a Pool table and Quiz machine on hand to keep the team spirit going. There are daily newspapers and magazines for you to read so you can watch the day go by, with gorgeous classy cocktail’s while your sitting on the comfy sofa’s looking out to sea. In the summertime your better off outside, there is an excellent enclosed area to sit back and enjoy the sea views and watch the world go by, but remember to get here early to grab the best  available seats. It has for many years become very popular as a  pre-club bar at the weekend’s with a great selection  of  resident DJ’s playing to the crowds on a friday and saturday night til late and also on Bank Holiday Sundays.The staff are extremely friendly, laid back and always  around to help you have a good time (should you want one!). The music policy midweek is chilled but foot tappingly happy and there’s a song for you to sing along to anytime you want.

Went to Dr Brighton's years ago, it had a huge tubular fish tank back then and we loved it. Great friendly atmosphere, good tunes with vinyl DJ and good staff.We returned probably 10years later this year 2017 and it hasn't changed much, except the fish tank is no longer there �. Still a great pub and will return next time we're out in Brighton.read more

Went there with a group of work mates Saturday 10th Dec.. first time there, certainly won't be the last! Great music...friendly staff especially the owner, as we were leaving, a van drove in front of a white Range Rover vehicle damaging it... the owner was there taking video evidence as were a load of other people..stupid driver didn't stop and tried to get away by driving down the one-way street only having to back up again as taxis were coming up the road! The owner of the pub actually tried to block him by standing right in front of the van.. a police van suddenly appeared and gave chase... hope they got him.. the owner of the pub was a hero!Oh, the christmas decorations were fantastic... very festive. Put mine at home to shame! Lol xxxread more
