Best service in Brighton, the staff were accomodating, friendly and knowledgable, and a really interesting menu too. It was a superb evening all round (loved my burger and the pistachio tiramisu)

My husband and I have been looking forward to dining at Erpingham House for a long time. It lived up to our expectations. We had a delightful experience, overall. Highly recommend the Fish n Chips, Brighton Bowl and all the pastries (we had 3 desserts, they were so good). The staff were friendly, professional and efficient. We can't wait to go back.

Vegan done with thought and using a real variety of ingredients, carefully presented. Service could have been faster, but it was friendly and helpful. Fellow diners were not impressed with the patty in the burger, (why try to recreate meat when pulses, beans, tofu etc etc can be showcased beautifully in ways that don’t force a comparison with meat).

It was quite expensive given the low cost of the ingredients, though clearly a lot of work had gone into each item.

Nice wine. Loved the mushroom starter. Good to try this restaurant.

The starter was super yummy (gazpacho) as was the dessert (pistachio tiramisu) but the main was really disappointing: Tacos. The flavours were unbalanced and it tasted very strongly of hemp seeds or something similar. The wine (Malbec) was good and really not too expensive for a whole bottle and we also had a complimentary cocktail. The service was perfect, I loved the interior design (my bf not so much) and therefore overall 4 stars for this lovely, lovely place.

I really want this restaurant to succeed as the people are soo lovely and the food delicious. It Just needs to settle a bit and the environment could be made to look less like a canteen. Food is really delicious though.

Very pleasant, helpful staff totally let down by the lacklustre food and coffee shop decor. Can’t complain about cost as it was heavily discounted due to the COVID help out programme but even so was not good. The fake fish was so tough you couldn’t cut it, was tasteless and inedible. The replacement tagliatelle we were offered was OK but the pasta was overcooked. The tacos were edible but flat, boring and a tiny portion. Very disappointed as have been looking forward to trying this restaurant since it opened.
The decor is unimpressive, a cross between Primark and Ikea.
Overall the only saving grace was the very pleasant server. It can’t be easy to work somewhere that serves such poor food and yet purports to offer a special dining experience.

Amazing food! Lovely staff, great service. But turn down that GODAWFUL music. Utterly dreadful, coffee-table house/muzak/chill-beats whatever. Much too intrusive, and if you're like me and very sensitive to sounds in shops/restaurants then this can ruin an otherwise wonderful experience!

I had been so excited to try this restaurant. I visited with my partner to celebrate a birthday. Firstly we were sat at a table and offered water, then 5 minutes later we were asked to move as we were at the wrong table!
Food was okay, tasty but not amazing.
Staff were available but again not especially attentive.
Would I go again.....? I won’t be rushing to book but if invited to visit by friends, I’d give it another go.

We enjoyed everything about Erpingham House! The food was delicious, I have to follow a gluten free diet and it's so well catered for here. The service was great, speedy but not rushed and the staff were very friendly. The restaurant itself is beautiful, very Instagramable! All this and for a reasonable price, we'll definitely be back!

Dinner was lovely! Potatoes we're unreal and i wish i could just have a bowl of them. Small issue with a meal not being put through to the kitchen but they were amazing at sorting it out and were very apologetic.

They had a wonderful espresso martini too.

We really loved eating at Erpingham House, beautiful decor and ambience. The service was great and the food was outstanding. Only small complaint is that the wine wasn’t very cold but the staff provided us with ice pretty quickly. Will definitely be returning as there are several items on the menu I can’t wait to try

The staff were fantastic, incredibly friendly, welcoming and chatty. Made for a wonderful relaxed atmosphere and made you feel like you were visiting friends. The host was a star and the others were super lovely.
The food was amazing, but we did only eat there with the Eat Out to Help Out scheme as the food is just generally a bit expensive for what it is. Will definitely be returning as a treat.
It's pretty gorgeous in there too and they were playing some great music.
Have recommended to so many people already.

The food was excellent, I'm not a vegan but was very pleasantly taken aback.
A lot of thought and care has gone into the selection of the ingredients and the dishes presented. Its apparent that good quality ingredients have been sourced and this is reflected in the prices; nevertheless, I will certainly go back as it was so well enjoyed by all at our table.

Lovely spot for dining out. The decor and table-ware was beautiful! Stand out meals were the ceaser salad, mushrooms on toast and the amazing chocolate gianduja raspberry hazelnut! Was absolutely delicious.. Possible favourite dessert ever! The staff were all so very lovely and very on top of things.
