What could be better than relaxing in a pub or a beer garden on a warm Summer’s evening? Well, relaxing in a pub or beer garden and getting involved in a pub quiz on a warm Summer’s evening! Brighton’s pubs play host to some of the best pub quizzes you could find, so we’ve narrowed it down to the best of the best. Here’s your ultimate guide to pub quizzes in Brighton!
Monday – 6.30pm @ Bar Broadway
Kemptown’s Bar Broadway, (which specialises in its ‘lights, camera, action’ theme), host a pub quiz every Monday. In keeping with the bar itself, the quiz follows a showbiz theme. Entry will cost you just £1 with the chance to win a whopping £50 bar tab! However it gets even more exciting; If the winning team answers all questions correctly they will win a cash jackpot, which rolls forward every week either until it is won or until it hits £500.
No team size limit. Bar Broadway, 10 Steine St, BN2 1TY
Tuesday – 8pm @ The Grand Central
Brighton’s much loved, centrally located pub, The Grand Central hosts an exciting pub quiz every Tuesday. Unlike most, this one’s a smartphone quiz, which means no pen and paper allowed! The quiz can be described as more like a game show than a pub quiz – simply bring along your smartphone or tablet and join the fun. To make things even better, the quiz takes place in the theatre upstairs, (The Nightingale Room), giving you a gorgeous setting to test your knowledge in. Entry will cost you just £2 and gives you the chance of winning a £30 jackpot to spend on food and drink!
8 people per team. The Grand Central, 29-30 Surrey St, BN1 3PA
Wednesday – 8pm @ Sidewinder
Sidewinder is known for its lovely beer garden but did you know it’s just as good for pub quizzes? Every week the Kemptown pub welcomes customers to come in, have a drink and join in with their less than typical pub quiz. They say that you shouldn’t expect any politics rounds here but instead prepare for cryptic clues and interactive games. Although be warned, if you’re seen using your mobile phone, you will be embarrassingly punished! Entry is just £1, (although if you pay £1 more you can be entered in ‘Play Your Cards Right’, offering you the chance to win a rolling jackpot) and you could be in with the chance to win £50 worth of drinks or even cash!
6 people per team. Sidewinder, 65 Upper St James Street, BN2 1PJ
Thursday – 7.30pm @ The Marlborough
If you’re looking for a classic pub quiz, The Marlborough is the place for you. Hosting a great all round quiz is showbiz multitasker, Boogaloo Stu. For just £2 entry you and your pals could have the chance to win £50 worth of cash, drinks or spot prizes.

Sunday – 8.30pm @ Caroline of Brunswick

The first Sunday of each month is ‘The Geekest Link’ – a sci-fi and fantasy quiz. The third Sunday of each month is the ‘Ctrl Alt’ quiz – for all those video games, movies and comic book lovers. And on the remaining Sundays it’s the ‘Quite Interesting’ pub quiz, with the classic music, picture, general knowledge rounds as well as special guest rounds.
