We are situated in an old fisherman’s cottage in the heart of the Brighton South Lanes, just around the corner from the seafront. Northern Lights offers you a selection of Scandinavian dishes from open sandwiches to sauteed reindeer. You are also welcome to pop in just for a drink, we have over two dozen flavoured vodkas to choose from along with other Nordic favourites like Akvavit and Gin Long Drink and special shots you won't find anywhere else in Brighton! Our coffees are freshly ground, organic and fairtrade and you can enjoy it with a piece of freshly baked homemade cake.

Northern Lights is also available for private hire for weddings, ideally situated next to Brighton Town Hall. We are happy to arrange full 3-course meal or if preferred less formal gathering for drinks. If you have a special event we can easily be flexible about opening earlier for you with no extra cost.
