The new Hobgoblin has certainly not lost it's alternative roots and still caters for Brighton's diverse and music loving crowd who like their nights out a litte left of mainstream. Arty, tatty, folksy and refreshingly credible, The Hobgoblin swallows neat and polished, chews them up and spits out something insouciant, real and honest.
The Hobgoblin is homey and unpretentious, with lots of wood, brickwork and paisley, plenty of paintings, an abundance of revelry and the Thai street food served seven days a week is an absolute winner! However, the real gem here is outside; to claim 'the best beer garden in Brighton' may be seem a bit far fetched but we can assure you it's completely true.
The vibe is relaxed and and the people are ace, the music is good and the drinks are even better. And you won't find many pubs with a pinball game for a table - even in Brighton!
