The new Hobgoblin has certainly not lost its alternative roots and still caters for Brighton's diverse and music loving crowd who like their nights out a little left of mainstream. Arty, tatty, folksy and refreshingly credible, The Hobgoblin swallows neat and polished, chews them up and spits out something insouciant, real and honest. The Hobgoblin is homey and unpretentious, with lots of wood, brickwork and paisley, plenty of paintings, an abundance of revelry and the Thai street food seven days a week is an absolute winner! However, the real gem here is outside; to claim 'the best beer garden in Brighton' may be seem a bit far fetched but it's true.
