We visited this restaurant after seeing an ad for a Halloween promotion - kids eat for £2 on Halloween. We were disappointed that there were absolutely no Halloween decorations and none of the staff were dressed up. The advert gave the impression that the restaurant would be celebrating Halloween. Disappointing for our kids. However the food was good and it was good value with the offer. The service was friendly but slow considering how quiet it was in there.

Such a lovely Bistro, & dog friendly too!
We shared the fish platter, & it was delicious. The children were happy with the kids menu, and loved the chocolate brownie. I will definitely be back as rare to find a place so welcoming, and that caters for our furry friend, the children, even our elderly mother in law would manage with the layout.
A great place to dine, seconds from the beach- highly recommended.

Fabulous Sunday roast! Thank you! We went for the beef which was succulent and beautifully tender. Wonderful selection of vegetables, the cauliflower cheese was delicious! The gravy was rich and very tasty the perfect finish. We will be back

The is the second time i have been there. It is so organised with table being far apart, so you feel safe while dining. I will definitely be going back. Food was lovely and lots of it and very reasonably priced.

Food was yummy, good portion size, and came quickly. we were sat in a booth with no lighting and had to ask a few times for candles and we ended up with two very small ones, was a little dark and dingey in our corner with just a view of a service door out the window. Bramble cocktail was over sweet and not what I would consider to be a proper bramble from my own cocktail training and experience.

This is an quirky spot just off the main drag in Worthing. Quite modern and a bit quirky in its layout. Menu is fine but just a tad expensive considering how far it is from London. Having said that it clearly appears to have its followers locally and the in the midst of eat out to help out it was worth a try.

We were looking forward to eating here , but unfortunately the food was disappointing and obviously had been sitting around a while potatoes were not crispy and the roast pork was definitely on the rare side , and yes we would have complained but we had trouble attracting any staff member and £100 for four for Sunday lunch I hoped for more!

Service used to be amazing but the level has really dropped. The waitresses didn’t really know what the specials were & I had to go to the bar to ask what the desserts were & was told that the kitchen might have closed already! Previously they’ve always been amazing but not this time. We went cause it was pie week & although good food, strange to serve chips not mash with the pie, maybe it was cheaper/easier for them. I’ll be going again as it could be a one off but disappointing.

Had a lovely Sunday lunch at Brunswick and Thorn. We had the roast pork and the lentil roast, which were both delicious. The service was top notch, and they are dog friendly, meaning we could take our pooch with us.

Highly recommend, and we can't wait to go back and try their lunch and breakfast menus.

We visit Brunswick & Thorn quite regularly. On Sunday, the service was slow. I ordered the steak special, which I was told was sirloin steak. It didn’t look like sirloin and was chewy and gristly. I wouldn’t order this again or recommend it.

We had a delicious meal at this restaurant - we were given both the Christmas menu and the normal menu and chose two courses from both, all of which were delicious and with good portion sizes. The owner’s husband served us for most of the evening and he was friendly and efficient. The only improvement that we felt could be made might be to lower the lighting which might make the atmosphere more intimate and less municipal. However, this minor issue didn’t spoil our experience at all.

Trendy and creative decor, attentive and happy service with reasonably priced homemade food. If you're driving, ask for a non alcoholic cocktail...even the drinkers in the party were impressed with the flavours!
