King and Queen, Brighton

King and Queen, Brighton

The King & Queen is located on part of the main London Road heading north out of Brighton from the Brighton Pavilion. It’s a modern building but is done up as a mock tudor inn.

Many years ago I used to visit the King & Queen with friends who lived in Brighton. In those days it was a place to go for a sedate drink and a good meal. It was one of the better pubs in Brighton.

On one of my Brighton pub crawls I made a return visit to the King & Queen and discovered that times have changed.

The interior of the pub is still the same – large and impressive with high ceilings and balcony areas. But on a late Saturday afternoon the pub was anything but sedate. There were large TV screens on the walls at either end of the main area. Each of the TVs was showing different sports results programmes with the volumes up. Combined with the music from the DJ the overall effect was a cacophonous mixture of sound that I hated. The pub was very crowded so they must be doing something right for some people, but I have to admit that I baled out before I even came close to getting served at the bar.

Real ales and food are available here but a retreat to the nearby Basketmakers Arms provided a much nicer experience.

    In the late sixties and seventies the King and Queen was the pub that we all went to after concerts at the Dome. Never sedate, especially after a big name, for example David Bowie!
