I've been here many times as it is close to where I work. I love this place it is very quirky and they have a huge range of cocktails as well as selling the basic beer, wine etc. They have happy hour sun-fri through most of the day (12-9pm) and all the cocktails with smiley faces are half prices and...

I have lived in Brighton for a few years, now I can finally say I found a home. Warm and welcoming environment, food on offer and I don't drink cocktails often, but the ones I had there were spectacular

Twisted Lemon is conveniently close to my office, so it's often the first port of call for after work drinks. The cocktails are amazing. Sadly my favourite, their pornstar martini isn't part of their happy hour cocktails, but many others are. Unlike some cocktail bars, Twisted Lemon is unpretentious and unassuming. It's definitely worth checking out if you're in the... More

We just stopped in for one drink fairly early on a Saturday night. The staff were friendly. It was a bit messy with glasses left around everywhere and spilt drinks. But it's quite a cool little bar and we were given good measures of drinks

The cocktails here are ok , a little lacking in flavour & made so messily by miserable staff! The place is grubby throughout Everything you touch is sticky....just looking through the sticky menu made my hands filthy! One staff member was very miserable & unfriendly, the other was ill & constantly coughing over all the ingredients! In brief, sticky environment... More

The Twisted Lemon's fun name is what led us here. The atmosphere is super quirky and fun, with all of the cocktails painted in an animated fashion all over the walls. The staff was very friendly and accompanying. We did only have cocktails, so I can't speak for their food, but they were delicious. Although a bit pricey, you get... More

I've had the pleasure of visiting this establishment twice in the past month. The first time was a stop off on my hen party weekend and we enjoyed the drinks so much I returned again this weekend with my husband. I've tried four cocktails here and all of them were superbly made and tasted amazing. My husband absolutely loves a... More
