Really nice to sit down and know I can rely on getting a quality experience. Only one item raised an eyebrow - king prawns in garlic sauce as part of a starter. The garlic sauce was a thick flour paste which didn't work so well for me. But everything else was wonderful, really, and we will happily go back again. More

Steakhouse | Brighton, Brighton

So much better than a chain steak house - we had calamari followed by top notch fillet steaks that were beautifully cooked and came with garlic prawns, fries, onion rings and green beans. So nothing surprising on the menu, excellent service and you get what you pay for. The rottisserie chicken is a great idea as you can dine with friends and family who don't want steak or don't eat beef. More

We celebrated my husband’s 60th birthday here over lunch with his parents. We were made most welcome and attentively served throughout our meal. There were not many in on the Wednesday before the Easter weekend but three other tables filled up during our time there. The decor is smart French and the napiery crisp white linen. Our food was nicely presented, although the delicious French Onion Soup maybe have had too much cheese on top, and full of flavour. My husband’s Dover Sole and my Dressed Crab were particularly good. We drank Verdicchio; perfect with fish. A very pleasant lunch in comfortable surroundings complemented by excellent service. More

First time here, a late lunch with a friend and a need to catch up on the Goss! Glad I’d booked as it looked pretty busy when we arrived but actually most people had eaten and it emptied out in half an hour or so. Our server was warm and friendly and efficient. Attentive but not intrusive and was just there when needed. The food, well my Mamma Mia burger was a bit dry and tough. The rest was fine. Maybe I’ll choose something else next time. I’d definitely come back for another go. More

From a relaxing post-walk coffee and cake, to a very special classic dining experience in the stunningly restored formal rooms of the 18th Century mansion, our beautifully-cooked food is served at a price that is fair for everyone from producer to guest. Guests can now enjoy our new restaurant ‘Source’, a ‘farm to fork’ concept which takes advantage of the wonderful array of quality, locally-sourced meats, fish and freshly-grown produce – all from within a twenty mile radius of the House. Serving a seasonal , British menu, Source combines wonderful local produce with an unbeatable ambiance – a newly restored Grade 1 listed country house dating back to 1722, set in acres of unspoilt parkland and Sussex countryside; a peaceful and stylish experience just a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of the City.More

I came here for a lovely valentines meal. The open fire was very romantic and food was good. A shame the Food was just warm but not very hot, very delicious still. We were seated in the front room which was not next to the fire and was quite cold and then moved to a table by the fire place to finish drinks which was nice a warming. Would recommend asking for a table by the fireplace on very cold days. Overall nice experience and would come back More

We are a traditional country style private members club, kitchen and beer garden. Built over 400 years ago the venue was formerly part of Olde Place Hotel which is now a residential address and from the outside, you couldn’t wish for a cuter little pub. Inside, our low ceilings, warm welcome and excellent food and drink options are a sure-fire hit.

Please note that membership is required to be able to make a booking with us. You can join at the time of your booking (before dining) and the ANNUAL cost is £35 per person or £55 for a joint.More

We had an exceptional meal at Edendum, enjoying traditional and innovative culinary delights centred around Italian cuisine. We started with complimentary sourbread rolls made from a dough that originated 30 years ago! Our shared Gnocco Fritto misto was generous and the swordfish pies had a delightful delicate flavour. We all agreed that Edendum was a real find and we were surprised that the restaurant was quiet (albeit on a Thursday evening). We would like to thank the staff for being so welcoming and the chef for his delicious creations. The ambience was perfect for a reunion of friends and we will certainly return to Edendum Brighton.

Unfortunately the restaurant didn’t have any record of our booking when we arrived and the maitre’d was a bit offhand, but he did find us a table. It took a while before we got our requested highchair but once a waiter was assigned to our table he was absolutely lovely. The food was very good with only one exception, some profiteroles which were hard and possibly only recently thawed out. A decent family-friendly option in Brighton. More

Quite a different sort of Indian restaurant and one I would definitely return to. Not a bog standard curry house - very interesting food and style. I was particularly impressed with the set menu options and pricing as I expected this place to be a lot pricier than it is. The chicken kebabs were wonderful and the fish was cooked to perfection. Great experience. More

The Dorset stands proudly on the corner of Gardner Street and North Road, amongst all the colour and excitement of the North Laine and has been, literally, at the heart of all things Brighton for nearly 200 years.

The Dorset stands out as a true Brighton Classic pub; relaxed, welcoming and full of character. It is popular with a unique and friendly cross section of shoppers, local residents, theatre goers and day trippers. It's the perfect spot to watch the bustling Brighton life go by, whether it's in winter whilst sitting by the fire with a warming mulled cider or seated outside in the summer, enjoying a refreshing drink in the sun! We are open 7 days a week from 9am.More

International | Brighton, Brighton

The Devil's Dyke in Brighton is a country pub oozing rural charm and rustic character. Our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, and the carefully nurtured cask ales and fine wines gracing our bar.

Whether you are planning dinner with friends or Sunday lunch with family, book a table online and enjoy some quality time with those you love the most.

The pub restaurant offers an ideal spot to rest after a day exploring the Devil's Dyke Valley, from which it got its name. According to local folklore the valley is an unfinished trench which was dug by the Devil in an attempt to flood the churches of the Weald. The valley now plays host to The Dyke Golf Club and Dyke Golf Course.

Our pub is on the beautiful Downs with great views overlooking Brighton - on a clear day can see London. It takes its name from the nearby beauty spot, a valley supposedly dug by the Devil.More
