J W Lennon’s Ale House and Spirit Grocery is inspired by the Irish/American bars that sprang up in New York at the end of the 19th century, where immigrants could shop and enjoy a jar or two just as they would in the traditional spirit groceries back home in the emerald isle. The pub is beautifully out of keeping with its surroundings, located as it is on one of Brighton’s busiest dual carriageways, but has a frontage that would not be out of place in the back streets of 19th Century Dublin or New York. “Times may be tough but that isn’t going to stop us having fun”.
