The Prince Albert Brighton – Great for Gigs
Inside, and The Prince Albert is a maze of eclectically styled drinking dens, an antiquated sitting room, a small music memorabilia and covered back yard as well as front street-side seating. Upstairs there is an events room with its own bar that hosts plenty of live music gigs, view the lineup here.
The steady decline of independent music venus makes The Prince Albert Brighton a precious and endangered kind of pub, it has a large and loyal following of patrons and a team of enthusiastic and friendly bar staff. It is a pub with a sense of purpose and community that so many towns and cities now completely lack.
Serving more than beer and beats
The food element of the pub is delivered by Casa Mendonça, offering authentic Portuguese and Spanish tapas. Well priced and traditionally made, the small dishes are great for sharing with friends or picking at as a light meal. The large plates offer up some hearty and flavoursome dishes such as Portuguese kebab on a skewer with rice or fries, chorizo stew and two types of paella.
During the winter months, Sunday roasts are also served, with a traditional offering of meats and vegetarian and vegan options, all served with a generous selection of locally sourced, seasonal vegetables.
