Award winning traditional family run pub overlooking Blakers Park in the Fiveways and Preston Park area of Brighton. Serving home made locally sourced food, local real ales, fine wine and a warm welcome.

Rated by Tripadvisor, we have been awarded both their certificate of excellence 2020 & Travellers Choice 2020!

The Cleveland Arms is now open and have created a safe environment for our staff and customers. We have removed several tables internally and our outside spaces now have umbrellas for covering from sun or rain. We have several fixed sanitisation stations throughout the pub along with table bottles also available. Our service is strictly table service only and we only allow tables up to a maximum of 6 people within 1 group or 2 households. We request that you respect us, our staff and other customers by adhering to government guidelines in maintaining social distancing and maximum groups of up to 6 people.

We are an independent traditional family pub serving home cooked food 7 days a week. Meat is sourced from Barfields butchers and fish is sustainably caught locally. Offering Sussex Ales including Harveys, Dark Star and Long Man.

Recently refurbished The Cleveland Arms can cater for small or larger groups and is very family and dog friendly. We have live sports, live music nights, quiz nights and charity events.
