Spotlight on: Fountain Head

102 North Road, Brighton, East Sussex, BN1 1YE

Christmas has already landed in Brighton’s famous Laines, and there’s an abundance of places to shop for independent and unique gifts in its winding streets! Once you’ve stocked up on stuff for family and friends, stop off in the Fountain Head for a cosy festive drink. The bar has plenty of twinkly lights, Christmas decorations and cosy armchairs to snuggle up in - there’s even a flickering wood burner to warm you up. Enjoy a spicy, warm and cinnamon packed Mulled Wine from the bar, or treat yourself to a toasty Mulled Cider instead!

Sticking around for a little while? Your mulled beverage will be the perfect accompaniment to some quality, locally sourced pub grub. Straight from the Fountain Head kitchen, enjoy fat burgers, classic pub mains or small bites to eat. Pre-bookings can even enjoy a stunning three-course Christmas Menu which features Mulled Wine Poached Pears as a dessert!

Best of the rest:

The Joker

2 Preston Road, Brighton, BN1 4QF

What? One of Brighton’s bougiest cocktail bars.

Where? The pub on the corner at the end of London Road.

Why? Along with inventive cocktails, craft beers and delicious wines, The Joker are serving a delicious mug of Mulled Wine for £4.95.

Seven Stars

27 Ship Street, Brighton, BN1 1AD

What? Funky pub with loads of seating options and a great food menu.

Where? Just opposite Union Street, two minutes from the seafront.

Why? After a brisk walk along the sea you can head to Seven Stars and enjoy a Mulled Wine or Cider by the fireplace. Still need warming up? Order a shot of Spiced Rum or Tuaca to go alongside your toasty beverage!

Between Two Thorns

67 Upper North Street, Brighton, BN1 3FL

What? A florist with festive DIY workshops!

Where? At the top of Spring Street, across the street from The Windmill Pub!

Why? Ok so, a bit of an unconventional choice. However, Between Two Thorn’s popular Christmas Wreath Making is a great chance to sit down, make something handmade for Xmas and enjoy a glass of boozy Mulled Wine! It costs £40 but you’ll come away with a beautiful, fresh wreath. Classes are available all throughout December!

Royal Pavilion Ice Rink

Royal Pavilion, Brighton BN1 1FN

What? Kitchen and bar by the side of Brighton’s most popular ice rink.

Where? In the pretty Pavilion Gardens.

Why? What better way to get into the festive spirit than with a warm Mulled Wine after an hour on the ice. Sit under the pretty fairy lights and watch skaters fly past whilst you nurse your warm drink or take refuge in the bar whilst watching your family fall over on the rink!
