the small pub company with a big heart

Pleisure is an award-winning little pub company with over 25 years of experience.

We are not a chain, we run individual and unique pubs, and we are passionate about providing the best drinks at the best prices in a friendly unpretentious atmosphere.  

We run classic British boozers with high standards. Over the last 2 decades we have specialised in providing a wide range of quality drinks, with each pub concentrating on a specific spirit. The Office has over 40 different Gins, The Great Eastern has over 60 American Whiskeys and the Saint James over 80 rums.

 We also sell well-kept local ales on the pump and a broad range of bottled craft beers from around the World.

So whatever your tipple, we have a place for you.

The Saint James

16 Madiera Place Brighton


rum . thai . ale

With an award winning selection of over 80 different rums and 5 real ales, this pub is for anyone who likes their classic british boozers with a Tiki twist.

Our kitchen serves some of the best authentic Thai food available in Brighton from Monday through to Sunday.

At night, things get lively with rock ‘n’ roll and Soul DJs at the weekend.

bourbon . ale . craft beer

Just down from the station lies another one of our award winning real pubs. Specialising in Bourbon and has over 60 American Whiskies, as well a good range of ales and other less important spirits.

The walls are lined with old books and the low-sling ceiling create a cosy, inviting environment for a quiet pint. The weekends get a bit noisier when DJs spin Americana vinyl.

So for a classic British boozer (with a little touch of Kentucky thrown in) there is no better place in Brighton.

Formally called The Green Dragon, there has been a pub on the site since 1854. Situated in the bustling North Laine, a mecca for independent shops and quirky cafes. The Office specialising in a wide range of gins and cocktails, and if you fancy a bite to eat, the kitchen rustles up an authentic Thai menu.

Naturally The Office beat goes up a notch or two on a Friday and Saturday when the North Laine becomes the vibrant hub of Brighton’s drinking and dining scene.

The Office is almost unique in having its own courtyard garden, where you can soak up the afternoon rays or just take in the sea air.
