We moved to Brighton fairly recently and were recommended to visit this restaurant, and were delighted to find it. The food was just as others have said, all locally sourced and so fresh, and freshly made. We’ve already booked a second visit which I think says it all.

I came here with close friends for a Sunday lunch after excellent experiences on previous visits; this was no exception. Cosy surroundings that amplified the festive atmosphere, generous portions of delicious food, friendly and professional staff all for a very reasonable price. Given its proximity to my home I think Busby & Wild will be my go-to roast spot

Good neighbourhood restaurant with very decent food. Lots of echo, particularly in the larger room, which makes it a bit noisy.

I've been vegetarian for 35+ years and this was the most enjoyable meal I've had for ages. My partner, not vegetarian (why oh why oh why) also enjoyed whatever it was that she ate.
I would go again.

What an insider’s tip! B&W is the perfect balance of cosy but welcoming. It’s been designed beautifully and the team are outstanding… now the food, I mean, wow - absolutely delicious in every way. I couldn’t suggest a single improvement. I’ll be back ASAP and am telling everyone I know (and like!) about it.

We’ve been to Busby and Wilds a few times and can’t fault the food or service. Staff are friendly, we got seated and served quickly even though it was quite busy. Sunday roasts on this visit, and we enjoyed the lamb and the beef, as well as the nice mix of veg. We’ll be back.

We had a lovely meal, great range of local beers, three vegan options for mains and the two we tried were delicious. Wouldn’t come here just for a drink but definitely worth it for a meal.

Found food on the menu had run out. The quality of food and service not great. The burgers were over cooked and because we complained about the lack of food felt the waiter service was not as good as the other tables

At first glance we were all looking forward to a good roast 3 meat 3nut roast but sadly they had sold out of the nut roast, the only choice then was vegan halloumi & fries ( very poor choice.. they asked if they could have fish n chips but the kitchen said no !! Why they didn’t have another option is beyond us !! We then found that the staff were avoiding eye contact with our table so we were having to wave to get their attention especially after telling us the wine of choice was also sold out ..We understand places are busy but why not get yourselves prepared when you see the bookings are full … our roast was cooked perfectly so us ladies were happy but we had 3 disappointed men .. hope they learn from this and give more options for vegetarians…
