Leaning up the Bar with Fiddler’s Elbow

Leave a comment

It’s no secret that we love a good pub. Anywhere serving great beer, hearty food and  live music is a sure hit with the team and that’s why we dig the Fiddler’s Elbow. So we caught up with the gang there to find out a bit more about them.


What’s the story of how Fiddler’s Elbow came about? The Fiddler’s Elbow is a long established Irish pub in the centre of Brighton. The Fiddlers was formerly called ‘Stafford Arms’ then ‘Beckett’s Head’ until 21 years ago when it became the Fiddler’s Elbow.  

What’s the best thing about working here? The best thing about working here is the friendly customers and it’s not too bad having the best Guinness in town on tap either.


What are the biggest challenges facing you guys in 2016? Making sure our little pub is still one of the best loved spots for things to do in Brighton; catch live music, open mic & quiz nights and of course our legendary street parties which we have 3 a year now!  

What should a first time visitor to Fiddler’s Elbow try? It’s got to be the traditional Irish stew and the perfectly poured Guinness!

When you’re not at work, where are your favourite independent venues in Brighton for a bite or a drink? It’s got to be the Earth and Stars for their award winning roasts and for a late night tequila or two the funnest pub in town the Sidewinder.


Where to find the Fiddler’s Elbow: 11-12 Boyces St, Brighton BN1 1AN
