Why we love it

The Walrus is quite possibly one of Team Wriggle's favourite recent additions to Brighton's historic Lanes. The team behind this suave spot have poured oodles of time and effort into the former public house, bestowing upon it a brand new lease of life, as well as some pretty exciting, diverse new features. The sprawling venue now boasts an upstairs restaurant, a two-storey rooftop garden, and even an atmospheric basement live music venue.

The part we love the most, though, is the cosy and relaxed yet super-stylish pub that lies at the heart of the building. Full of intimate booths and snugs, the pub is decked out with an open fire, Victorian-style seating and plenty of green leather and red velvet comfy seating. Despite the pub's classic old school boozer feel, the bar itself is well stocked with the finest and tastiest beers, spirits and soft drinks that we all know and love.

On the hunt for even more style, flair and sophistication? Head upstairs to the Walrus's dining room – a seriously opulent space that's dripping in class and distinction. The seasonal menu has got a tonne of tasty options, ranging from pub classics to pizzas, roast dinners to sandwiches – it's the perfect spot for date night, drinks with your favourites, or a full-blown family affair of a Sunday roast.

If you're after a venue that's bursting with character, serves up mouthwateringly good food and boasts a bountifully well-stocked bar, The Walrus is the place for you.

Fab place with great service and good food. The most amazing rooftop!


Such great value and quality food!


Do you know what is more satisfying..and lasts longer than sex...that's right...the Roast Lamb dinner at The Walrus...I recommend lubricating the roast tatties with extra delicious gravy...follow with a soothing smoke and a nice long snooze...Naughty culinary pleasure that you don't have to take your clothes off for...Just loosen your belt and enjoy...


Wonderful venue, great food and excellent service


Great value for money


Fantastic food! We came for a Monday roast dinner and was very happy with what we received. Please see the photos of our lovely meals the plates were massive, by far the largest plates used to serve roast dinners in Brighton. The portion sizes are huge and this shouldn't put you off if you were thinking that quantity means lack of quality. The attention paid to each ingredient is spectacular. There is so much flavour with every bite of the broccoli, the carrots, the red cabbage (which we still are a little unsure what was used to flavour that, All Spice, is what we settled on), and the main. They serve vegetarian, vegan and even plantbased options. Incredible. I had the vegan cheese wellington, with broccoli, carrots, red cabbage, roast potatoes and gravy. We will definitely be going back.
