The Basketmakers is an award-winning traditional British pub in central Brighton, East Sussex. A cosy retreat in the heart of the bustling North Laine district, we are proud to pair our fantastic menu of British fare with an excellent range of draught ales, beers, wines & spirits to whet your whistle.

With friendly staff and an instantly recognisable vibe, the Basketmakers has become a much beloved Brighton institution over the past few decades. Instantly recognisable thanks to our unique, vintage décor and homely atmosphere, it’s a real gem of a classic Brighton pub.

Alongside our main menu, we also do lunchtime sandwiches, daily fish specials, kids’ meals and of course, traditional roasts on Sundays.

We are a family & dog friendly pub offering somewhere for friends, family, colleagues, and tourists to duck out of the hustle & bustle of town and tuck into some great food & drink.

Drop in for a pint and say hello.
