A cracking place where the booze is good and no one cares who you are. Near the beach and close to the lanes.

Amazing bar staff, cheap alcohol, great music and lovely atmosphere. This pub represents what Brighton is about, it's warm, welcoming and everybody can be who they are. I stayed in Brighton for 8 months and some of the best nights of my visit were spent at Doctor Brighton's. I would say that it is the best gay bar in Brighton.

Love this place. Staff really friendly and the pub has a great vibe. Visited a couple of weeks ago with my 18 year old daughter and took advantage of the 241 cocktails. Will definitely go back next time I am in Brighton. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone.

This is one of our favourite places to visit when staying in Brighton. The staff are friendly, great music and the 241 cocktails are great. Only criticism is the toilets... They are tired and could do with modernising. Just wish there was a pub like this where we live!

What an energetic and cool vibe Dr Brighton's has! We popped in for a drink during the day and were lucky enough to catch their cocktail hour, so dutifully embraced the Black Russians. Delightful. The music was laid back and staff very welcoming. The atmosphere was also just what you would like for a Saturday daytime. We enjoyed it that... More

Hello to the two in the window seat. We are so glad you enjoyed your time at Doctor Brightons. We do try to keep you entertained when we can. In fact it was me that served your cocktails with sparklers while the one blew out quite fast lol. Thank you so much for your lovely review. We look forward to... More
