For Sunday roasts & pints…
Part of the same group as Bier Haus and Haus on the Hill, The Freehaus is a modern tavern that pours a rotating range of local craft beer along with guest beers from across the UK and overseas. A hit with the local Hanover community, the pub also offers one of the largest selections of cider in Brighton and its wine list features local boutique and organically grown wines. When it comes to food, you’ll find a delicious menu of souvlaki. Come Sunday nights, the pub operates one of the best pub quizzes in town.

The Pond is an independent pub in Brighton's North Laine serving up delicious beer from all over the world, including its very own Pondwater Pale Ale. When it comes to food, this cosy boozer plays host to Taiwanese steamed bun purveyors Baby Bao. On Mondays the menu goes completely meat-free and dishes change with the seasons. On Sundays, we like to tuck into its sharing Sunday roast baos, where you can fill buns with roasted meats and excellent side dishes.

The Hand In Hand
Possibly the best boozer in Brighton, The Hand in Hand is a brew pub in Kemptown which makes its own beers down in the cellar and at a new brewery in Worthing. Run by a fun, friendly team, this cosy spot holds Sunday jazz nights, Toad championships (a local, highly skilled game where you have to throw metal coins into a hole in an old school desk) and one of the best New Year’s Eve parties in town. When it comes to food, you’ll be well served by Al The Pie Man, whose handmade wares are sold behind the bar.

The team behind The Pond recently collaborated with Kanthi Kiran Thamma, chef and director of The Spice Circuit, to offer a fresh kitchen experience at The Hampton. Easy Tiger is inspired by India’s famous Toddy Shop street side bars. When it comes to the menu, we like to tuck into one of the kitchen’s lamb roti wraps or the masala mackerel fish and chips. A great selection of drinks, a laid-back atmosphere and a cracking beer garden make this a vibrant place to hang out come Sunday afternoons.

The Ginger Dog
The Ginger Dog is a local pub offering real ales, craft beers and fine wines together with an elevated menu of traditional pub food. As with its sister sites – Hove’s The Gingerman and The Ginger Pig – The Ginger Dog uses seasonal ingredients to offer a high-end dining experience in relaxed surroundings. When it comes to Sunday lunch, we’re a fan of the pickled mackerel with smoked mackerel croquette, celeriac remoulade and gooseberry ketchup, followed by lamb rump with lamb fat pressed potato, romesco, chard and lamb nugget. Families and, of course, dogs are welcome and the team knows how to make a decent Bloody Mary.
