Why we love it

The Dover Castle pub is a fabulous, traditional pub in the heart of Brighton. An old school style boozer, Dover Castle also offers a short but perfectly formed menu of pub classics, augmented with a few quirky twists from the chef's imagination. Expect a menu that revolves around fresh ingredients which have been locally and seasonally sourced, and are free range wherever possible.

Inside, the pub is delightfully cosy and comfortable, with an eclectic mishmash of decorations and furniture. Come for a few pints with your best mates, and stay for the fantastic selection of live music, open mic and comedy nights.

Great food and a great friendly atmosphere


The Hanover Hottie Burger was superb as was the minute steak! Very friendly barmaid. Pleased to see the Dover Castle returning to it’s former glory as one of the best Hanover Pubs.
