The Western Front Pub (Brighton Town Centre – Brighton)

Just outside the main shopping centre in Brighton town centre and a short walk up from the beach is the Western Front Pub. This pub is bustling with activity with a sea of outdoor tables and chrome chairs to the rear with large wooden features within from heavy-set coffee tables to the thud of the floorboards on the floor. The service at bars upstairs and down during the day is fast and the food available is pretty hearty. The drinks are also quite well priced. We head up the stairs for a pint after a solid daytime drinking session, the upstairs bar remains closed and we can see into a small grubby looking kitchen but the room is very bright and spacious (all the other punters seem to prefer standing out in the sunshine). The sofas are torn apart soemwhat and sag, but they are comfortable and food arrives promptly as we partake in lunch.

Overall a welcoming and comfortable venue which I imagine gets over crowded at night but after a shopping spree or drinks at neighbouring bars on the beach, the Western Front is, at least, a good spot to stop for lunch – 7/10
