Pub Du Vin Brighton is a traditional British pub which is tucked away on Ship Street, next to its sister venue, the award winning boutique property, Hotel Du Vin.
If you think very good quality ales, beautiful wines (of course!) and traditional classic bar meals and then you will be on your way there. Pub Du Vin is refreshingly delivered, it boasts a little of the buff and the gleam from its stunning neighbour – however it is a little more laid back.
There is a sense of food nostalgia in this place too, as you are rekindled with dishes from yesteryear – the sort of dishes which fill you with warmth and maybe a bit of stodge.
Pub Du Vin, Brighton is located in a landmark building, in what used to be the Sussex Arts Club several years ago and it has now been tastefully redesigned to accommodate a great food pub, as well as quality adjoining private dining, the Dome function room (90 guests) – and all these rooms serve Hotel Du Vin also.
Situated in part of the Lanes conservation area, look out for the discrete polished brass plaque and street lantern which provide signage for the venue and look out for diners and drinkers in their bay window.
Inside the walls are painted in a faux distressed brick and plaster design (by Gary Myatt) that really adds to the warmth of the room. The rooms are actually painted to look old and it works.
Traditional pub menu with an emphasis on local suppliers
Local ales on tap usually include Sussex Best Bitter, Hophead, Thatchers Gold and Smoky Nol to name a few, all served from a traditional pewter tankard with traditional pub meals to match.
Pub food favourites at Pub Du Vin include beer battered fish and chips, rump steak and thick hand cut chips and homemade pies.
Then there are lighter snacks from the bar such as homemade crisps, pork scratchings, pickled eggs and pork pies.
Reading the Pub du Vin menu is also like taking a trip back in time to the best meal your grandparents used to prepare for you – gourmet granny if you will! There is plenty of thought put into this pub food and how it’s meant to be eaten.
What we love about the venue is the attention to detail which is evident throughout. Decor, service, newspapers, napkins, knowledge of staff, quality of food, generous helpings, and much more. Please note that the venue is also available to hire for private events.
