Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Unassuming from the outside, perfectly situated on a quiet side street less than 5 minute walk from where we were staying (Drakes). Streaming music was what made the place along with the bar staff. They don’t serve food but you are welcome to order a...pizza from the Italian which almost next door and bring it back to the pub to enjoy with your pint. Super!More

Wow, so lucky to Stumble upon this pub. If you are in Brighton this is a must go to! The welcome is absolutely amazing, all staff so welcoming, making sure you are OK. Do not visit Brighton without going to Brighton Rocks

Can sometimes find some of the bars in Brighton a bit pretentious and self-important...so glad we found this place to while away a few mid-afternoon hours when staying around the corner. Great selection of drinks, really well made cocktails and super-friendly staff and regulars. Really...cosy and comfortable, well worth seeking out.More

So Brighton Rocks seemed go through a bit of a downturn for a few years, but hey - with COVID and stuff, what hospitality business didn't have a rough time. Having been in there last weekend though, I'm very pleased that following a change of...management it's back to it's fun and full-of-atmosphere self. Love it!More

So pleased we found this little gem of a place, tucked away off St James’s Street. It’s exactly the right amount of quirky with being ‘try hard’. Interesting decor, good choice of drinks, nice staff, fantastic sound track when we visited .

Always visit this bar when in Brighton, normally for a couple of beers as a nightcap. They have some good keg craft beers on tap from brewers including Marble (Manchester) so you can't go wrong! Cocktails apparently good. The guys are friendly and provide awesome...service. Looking forward to my next visit.More
