Drinks and Atmosphere at GP

Golden Pineapple...
A symbol of good hospitality.
Tasty drinks & relaxed vibes 


A Golden Pineapple has historically been a symbol of good hospitality and that is what we are all about here; Friendly service catering for a casual drink, a special occasion and everything in between. 

Continuing a relaxing and intimate atmosphere from mid week into the weekend we are a calm little oasis in the bustling Laines of Brighton; a city synonymous with the grandeur and romanticism of the regency period.

We serve up a small cocktail list of in house creations and twists on classics, utilising fresh homemade and seasonal ingredients; but we also love going off menu and jumping into the classics, so don't be too shy to ask.

We have also just launched a new kitchen concept, Espina. 

Informal small plates heaped with flavour and designed to share. Like our drinks, the dishes are fun takes on classics that let the ingredients do the talking.  


Owing to the size, shape and style of the bar, we mainly cater for smaller groups (up to 6 people), but can accommodate a couple of slightly larger groups each evening, if we are unable to accommodate the particular evening you require, we are always happy to offer recommendations for local spots where you can have as much fun as a larger group.     

Please note the menus featured are only a sample menu, and are subject to daily/weekly changes

Impromptu fun dining
Weekly changing menu of playful and delicious plates

Newly opened, Espina, Spanish for thorn or spike, takes inspiration from the informal taverns of the Basque Country where drinks and food are always had together in good company. The food is always super seasonal, crammed with flavour and aimed to be shared and talked about.

We now do take reservations, so you can book yourself a table for dinner, the menu has plenty to offer but you can always just pop in and grab a couple of plates if in a rush, or explore the menu bit by bit as the night and conversation unfurls.


The constantly changing menu is perfect for an impromptu catch up, date night, or a carefully organised evening to impress your friends. 

The menu featured is a sample of our new offering, and as we find our feet in the kitchen and refine our service, we will expand our menu and change it to continue to showcase the freshest seasonal produce. 


For Food and/or Drinks

We like to keep the Golden Pineapple 50/50 reservations and walks ins, that way you can pop in for a drink or 2 throughout your evening, or plan ahead and ensure you get a table for the evening.
