In the summer months, their outdoor seating offers guests the chance to enjoy the historic Lanes from a restful position.

The friendly welcome and diverse mix of locals, traders and tourists make the Bath Arms a lively and engaging pub to while away a few hours.

Hidden history – The Bath Arms Brighton

The Bath Arms is the oldest licensed premises situated in the original lanes of Brighton. The building was once two cottages that we merged to form a pub in 1864 called The True Briton Eating and Beer House. In 1868 it was renamed as The Bath Arms and has not changed since then. Down in the cellar there is a bricked up entrance to a series of tunnels and mazes that run underneath the Lanes of Brighton.

    Always a great choice if you want to meet friends in central Brighton. Great atmosphere and if you fancy a bite to eat they have a number of large tables in their restaurant section/ dining section out back. Good pub food and definitely a good atmosphere. Great selection of wines and friendly folk behind the bar.
