Quite a nice pub, gets very busy on Saturday evening for obvious reasons. Pool table was free every time we went there but otherwise it's £1 (I think). Friendly staff.

Were back in Brighton next weekend to celebrate my birthday, there is only one place to kick start our weekend, namely Dr Brighton`s, I have lost count of the number of truly superb nights we have had there, each time unique and to remember, The pub itself the ambience, the music, decor, people, and the staff are second to none...

Hi Terry B, Firstly, thank you for your review. We are glad you used two adjectives to describe the level of volume in the pub as other TripAdvisor users wouldn't be entirely sure what you meant by loud.

Came here straight off the pier and sat and working our way through the cocktail menu which was 2 4 1. Left trashed and very happy. Great staff, very friendly and awesome atmosphere!! The Cher soundtrack was not to be forgotten and the pool was free. Would definitely come here again. Oh and do the cocktail menu. You won't regret... More

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