Slap-bang in the middle of the Lanes, the Black Lion transforms daily from bustling foodie pub, to one of Brighton’s busiest late-night venues. With great blues and funk bands playing early in the week, to the city’s finest DJs spinning vinyl selections at the weekend, and a large heated and covered beer garden - this is a pub that covers all the bases.
Our food is all about getting back to basics, using local, seasonal and fresh ingredients in recognisable dishes - keeping to traditional, classic pub flavours - but with a modern twist. our dynamic kitchen team builds on the black lion’s reputation, year-on-year, as one of the best pubs in brighton so expect great gastro comfort food, that’s totally packed with flavour!
Music plays a huge part in making the Black Lion what it is. Our DJs have a pretty simple brief: “keep ‘em smiling & make ‘em dance. (see, pretty simple). You’ll hear new/Old School Hip Hop, Northern Soul, Motown, Funk, R’n’B, Rock & Roll, Ska, Mod Revival, Indie & Punk - often on the same night.
and our experienced bar staff can whip up your favourite cocktail or a brilliant bloody mary. Or choose from a bar filled with great local craft beers, ales and ipa’s as well as a decent wine list. whatever your drink of choice, you’ll find it at the black lion - cheers!
