Brighton The Cleveland Arms Brighton
Welcoming folk of the Preston Park area and beyond, The Cleveland Arms Brighton is the definition of a community pub.
The venue itself has been recently refurbished into a modern and light but cosy and welcoming space, overlooking the beautiful green space of Blakers Park.
Friendly welcome guaranteed.
The Cleveland Arms Brighton is an independent pub that has been family-run for over 30 years. Current owners Sarah and Jamie Davies have a long history in hospitality, in particular, pub and restaurant managing, and this is very obvious when visiting The Cleveland Arms. The team, both behind the bar and in the kitchen promise a friendly and welcoming visit and attentive service.
A blended menu at The Cleveland Arms
There’s a blended menu to suit all appetites at The Cleveland Arms Brighton. You’ll find a mix of modern small plates sitting alongside larger pub classics. The small plate menu cameos a single primary ingredient which is finessed with imaginative and skilful cooking and paired in ways that are as bold and daring as they are delicious. These are the sort of dishes that you might find in high-end central Brighton restaurants, but here they are served with the comfort of a friendly, stylish local.
Classic pub dishes re-imagined
