Brighton has huge numbers of pubs, of all shapes and sizes, and this book provides a highly entertaining guide through all of them. You may not agree with every comment, but they will certainly make you smile, or even laugh, before deciding that you really should be down the pub instead of sitting around at home reading books!
The people who wrote this book understand that it's the whole experience that makes a good pub. Unlike other guides they don't just focus on say trendy refitted bars full of beautiful people, or on pubs with real ale or with good food. Instead they review every pub and give it a score for each facet of the perfect pub - beer, atmosphere, music etc. Out pops a number at the end and the pubs are ranked.
These scores are all very well, but what counts are the recommendations that come from local people with a real enthusiasm for the whole business of going out drinking and having a good time. Go to the recommended pubs in here and you can't go wrong, also you'll probably end up in a few cool places you would have missed.
