Grat bar for a drink that is lively and full of lots of different characters. Great for a dance and a food time. Drinks releatively cheap and staff very friendly. Had karaoke on during one night when we visited. A very popular bar.

We've been having a "jolly boys outing" to Brighton for years and I always find myself coming back to the Bulldog. It's not as lively as it used to be, in fact this year I had a quiet drink at the bar (on a Saturday...More
