The Pub

Situated just up from the Hove seafront, The Connaught is one of Brighton & Hove's best all-round pubs. We are part of the renowned Brakespear Brewery family and pride ourselves on our family-friendly atmosphere, delicious home-cooked food and great wine, cocktails and ale selections.

We are child-friendly every day until 7pm, please let us know if there are children in your party when booking in the restaurant. 

Dogs are more than welcome in our bar area &  garden but not in the restaurant, dogs must be kept on a lead at all times.

Phase Two:

May 17 - June 20

At this point we will be able to open the inside of the pub as well and will be open every day of the week but still only serving drinks - no food. There will still be some restrictions:

  • For tables sitting indoors the rule of six still applies - you can have up to six people from multiple households. Please note from this phase onwards we are not taking any bookings for the garden tables or booths.

  • Parties sitting outside can be from multiple households.

  • Table service will still be in place, you may not order at the bar yet.

  • Masks must be worn when entering and exiting the venue or when not sat at your table.

  • Again, any buggies or pushchairs must be able to be folded down and stored under your table to ensure proper safe distancing between tables.

Opening Times for Phase Two -

Monday to Saturday - Midday to Midnight

Sunday - Midday to 10pm

Phase One:

April 16 - May 16

  • In this first phase our beer garden will be open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from noon until 10pm

  • We will not be serving any food at all, we will be open for drinks only

  • Masks must still be worn when entering or exiting the venue or when not sat at your table.

  • No more than six people can sit as one party and splitting larger parties over multiple tables will not be allowed. Any children or infants in the party count towards your maximum number in the party.

  • All under-18s must be out of the venue by 7pm.

  • Table service will be maintained - no one can order at the bar.

  • Any pushchairs or buggies must be able to be folded down and stored under the table to ensure social distancing between tables is adhered to.
