Welcome to The Independent

As we are free of any brewery, pub chain or tie, The Independent is a true freehouse pub in the Hanover/Queens Park area of Brighton.

As a freehouse, we are able to offer a more exciting choice of beers, wines and spirits. Currently we have four real ales alongside 12 keg beers, but these change weekly so we recommend popping by to see what’s new on the bar!

We serve a small plate menu Monday-Thursday and a full menu Friday & Saturday. The menus mix traditional British dishes with Mediterranean and other European flavours, with a lean toward fresh, local and sustainable fish, including vegetarian & vegan options. Everything is freshly prepared by our chefs and made from the finest ingredients, and our menus changes daily.

And of course come Sunday, we serve a full meat and vegetarian/vegan roast menu

We welcome dogs just as warmly as their owners, and we’re open every day of the week! We look forward to seeing you soon.
