Brighton’s Best Local Pub

We asked you to vouch for your favourite local pub, the one that has it all; friendly staff, great beer, delicious pub grub and a fun programme of events or entertainment. Because while it is true that your local needs you, it might also be true that you need your local.

Cardens Accountants sponsored the BRAVO 2020 award for Best Local and they join us in a merry ‘cheers’ to the Pub you’re proud to call your watering hole.

1st place

This diamond of a boozer has dazzled its way to the top of the pile and we are delighted to crown The Hand in Hand as Brighton’s Best Local. Epitomising the curious and eccentric community of Kemptown, the Hand in Hand pub is over 150 years old, sources wonderful and rare beers as well as brewing its own. A small pub, to be sure, but what do the best things come in?

2nd place

For the second year in a row, The Robin Hood hit the top three mark for Brighton’s best pub’s.  While society suffers from increasing loneliness and homogeneity of choice, you chose a pub that is community spirited to the core, with all the lumps, bumps and quirks of a time honoured legend.

3rd place

Nestled in the backstreets of Hove, The Urchin is a relaxed, friendly community pub but they don’t stop there! They benefit from housing their own microbrewery and offer over 120 frequently changing craft ales on the menu. You have seen it that The Urchin secure their place as one of the top three pubs in Brighton for the second consecutive year.
