Our Mission

Is to go above and beyond and exceed your expectations. To serve delicious, affordable food & drinks in a bustling environment that will make you want to return to week after week.

A Destination

The Caxton Arms is not place you discover in passing. Tucked away close to Brighton train station, it is one of the town’s best-kept secrets.

Our customers come to us with a purpose, whether it is to sample our great Thai food, have a few cocktails & pints after work or to play a game of pool in our sports cellar.

The pub has the benefit of being split over 2 levels with 3 bars, a mezzanine balcony and heated lower garden.

Modern & traditional Thai recipes made with the best local ingredients

Every plate that leaves our kitchen achieves that elusive, Thai cuisine-defining balance of sweet, salty, and sour — even dessert.

 The appeal of Thai cuisine lies in fresh flavours with a kick of chilli; we use a blend of fresh imported authentic Thai ingredients and local produce to bring you a winning combination that we believe is the best in town. We pride ourselves on our non-franchised kitchen that produces unique Thai food that beats the norm and avoids the stereotype of many of the other homogenised offerings out there. Our menu brings together the best of traditional Thai recipes and the vibrancy of modern ideas in the cuisine.
