Why we love it?

There’s nowhere with interiors that epitomise the sheer quirkiness of Brighton quite like the Hope & Ruin. From the sign above the door, emblazoned with cabaret lights, to the ethereal fairy-lit tree in the centre, to kooky accents like the washing machine and bathtub sofa, the whole pub appears to embody Brighton’s signature bohemian culture – and that’s before we even get to the food.

The Beelzebab kitchen plays along with the theme, a full-size caravan (albeit chopped in half) hosting Brighton’s only vegetarian and vegan kebab shop. Think vegan doners, dirty hotdogs, loaded fries and deep fried gherkins. With feel-good food this tasty, we’re not surprised nobody’s dared to compete.
