Went to the Hand in Hand pub on 8/4/17. We always visit this quirky little pub every time we go to Brighton. It's in Kemp town Brighton. This is my husbands favourite pub in Brighton. They brew their own beer. One of Brightons little Gems.

A return visit for my other half, first ( and not last) for me. The Landlady and Brewer were both really friendly, welcoming, and happy to guide and advise. Great Gins on offer that I hadn't tried before, and a selection of locally and on site brewed beers. The Porters were particularly good. It's a small pub with great decor... More

We really like this pub. Have visited it the last couple of times we have been to Brighton and it remains our favourite pub there. We never want to leave. You will either love it or hate it.

We received a warm welcome at this quirky relaxed little pub. Certainly worth the walk doing a tour of Kemp Town. Great craft beers on offer and plenty to keep you entertained.

We always make a beeline for this quirky, cosy pub on visits to Brighton. Staff are friendly & the pub is full of character. It attracts a diverse range of interesting punters which makes for great conversation.

we stumbled on this place after eating out, we were going to pop in for a quick one then venture onward into the centre, well, we never made the centre! Great crowd of very friendly people and bar staff, we even had shots a few times with the bar staff too. Great place for a real feel good factor. Thanks... More
