A website tracking my attempt to publish my own book, "Brighton's Best Pubs". This is a locally produced guide to every pubs and bar in Brighton, the book is a comprehensive guide covering an amazing 300 pubs and bars within the city, utilising a unique pub rating system. Atmosphere, Beer, Barstaff, Food, Entertainment, Decor/Garden and Talent are all rated for each pub/bar. It also features maps, a Club guide and suggested pub crawls.

Guestbook Entry

Got a nice post today in the guestbook on the old website from a guy called Paul:

"I spent two years in Brighton as part of my OE from NZ. Visiting many of its amazing pubs in my spare time was a great hobby. Gotta say a book like this does great justice to them. Some of my favs were the Lion and Lobster, Mash Tun, Open House, Enginee"

Looks like either the guestbook character limit cut him off or he accidentally clicked OK. I'd guess the last one was going to be Engineer, but no telling what else he likes....Paul?

Brighton & Hove Life Article

This month we have collaborated with Brighton & Hove Life magazine to produce a guide to "50 Great City Pubs & Bars":

"As Brighton & Hove Life readers, we know you demand high standards from your chosen drinkeries. You want places for quiet drinks in opulent surroundings, places to go for a big night out without having to face hoards of alcopop guzzling clubbers, somewhere for a proper Sunday roast, places to meet for a light lunch and places to go when you’re feeling naughty and want exotic cocktails to get you in a party mood. Here are our some of our favourite places for a great time… "


You can buy the march issue of Brighton & Hove Life on the website or in various newsagents around town.

Sussex Beer Festival

The book will be for sale at the Sussex Beer Festival (Hove Town Hall, 8-10 March 2007). 50% of the profits of sales will go to the Martlets Hospice charity.

There are 4,000 people expected to go to the beer festival over the 3 days, so it could be a good result for both the book and for the charity.
