Black Lion Pub

The Black Lion is the quintessential Brighton pub. Locals will enjoy its laid back atmosphere, while visitors can seek refuge from their hectic schedules in a raucous night out.

The eclectic tunes and excellent food make it one of my favourite pubs on this side of town!

It has a front terrace where people can gather and watch, together with a deceptively large beer garden that provides a social hub for friends and colleagues to gather each day.
With its murals from artists in town and live music on offer every night – whether you’re there for DJ nights or chilled drinks during the week, The Black Lion is still rooted in tradition but has grown into something much more than just your average boozer; it’s now one of the city’s most popular meeting places!

The moment I walked through those doors after moving back home last year was like reuniting with an old friend – warm memories rushed over me as soon as my nose caught a whiff of their homemade pizzas cooking in their kitchen.

The Black Lion Menu

A wide range of traditional pub dishes is available on the menu of the Black Lion restaurant, cooked from fresh, organic produce from around the Sussex area.
Whether you’re looking for lunch or dinner, the options here are versatile; there’s something for everyone – think small plate starters such as butternut arancini scotch egg, sharing dishes like fully loaded nachos (think queso), salads if you want to try out new things on your diet plan or burgers/dogs if it is an occasion where sliders won’t cut it!

This restaurant has a range of vegan mouth-watering options, but I’m partial to their tofu dogs. Besides the Asian salad, I am also a fan of the sticky toffee pudding served with Guinness and salted popcorn as the dessert to complete our meal.

Sunday Roasts

Having Sunday Roasts has been a weekly tradition at The Black Lion since the restaurant first opened, this is where the traditional fare is prepared with locally sourced products.

Served with crispy roast potatoes and seasonal vegetables as well as delicious veggie and vegan options for those who can’t make up their minds, Sunday roasts come in both adult sizes (adults only) or children’s sizes (smaller portions).
Enjoy your expertly mixed Bloody Mary or glass of fine wine while you wait for your meal!

Lots of Booze!

The Black Lion is the go-to place for beer lovers. You can’t beat their IPA or Brass Monkey, and they have a great cocktail selection too!

This is the place to be for when you need a little pick-me-up. Gain entry with £12 on Tuesdays and enjoy 2 cocktails, or sip your way through their carefully selected wine list!
