1st place

A classic and landmark pub in central Brighton, the Basketmakers Arms has chosen not to mess with a time honoured classic formula. After all, it’s classic for a reason.

2nd place

Rifting with the revival of real ale this is Brighton & Hove’s first microbrewery pub. It works so well because stripped back it is simply this – a building full of good beer, and good beer drinkers.

3rd place

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?
