new menu from Prickly Pear Mexican Kitchen coming soon


Welcome to The Foundry, Fancy a Pint?

Nestled in the backstreets of Brighton’s North Laine, The Foundry offers you a warm friendly welcome. “A proper gem of a pub” our atmosphere is vibrant - cosy nooks, open fireplace and décor that is easy on the eye. Order a drink from our cask selection, carefully selected wine list or ever growing spirit list.

We are really pleased to introduce Prickly Pear Kitchen who have taken over the food offering The Foundry. Prickly Pear Kitchen is run by Maricela Bautista & husband James Cheeseman. Maricela is from Mexico City and lends her authentic hand to the menu, which is complimented by James’ 10 years of experience as a chef. 

Prickly Pear celebrates local ingredients and sustainable farming practices, supporting their vision of a healthy food industry, soil to plate. The menu is inspired by Mexican cuisine, but not limited to its traditional style. This allows some freedom to be creative with the local produce they use, whilst

celebrating a love for Mexico.

COVID 19 UPDATE- Our doors are open, and we are following all of the government guidelines - what ever they may be at any point in time on any day! 

Don't want to venture out? We are now offering our food & drinks for take-away.
