Rekindling from the flames, Kindling will serve great steak, cooked simply over charcoal. Our short and sweet menu of high-quality ingredients, locally sourced where possible, is cooked by our kitchen team over live fire in the open kitchen in the middle of the restaurant. We want our menu of supreme quality beef, flawlessly prepared and served by our knowledgeable and kind team to be great value, affordable and delicious for all. With a fun and relaxed atmosphere and the enticing smell of barbecued meats, our new menu offers a choice of three cuts, all from grass-fed British beef. Our choice of steaks and burgers are simply seasoned, grilled over charcoal, and served with your favourite sauce and delicious sides."

    Had a lovely anniversary dinner date at Kindling, good food and lovely ambiance, with a nice chilled vibe. Overall food was very tasty, however when you add the sides it does get a little pricey, as the steaks only comes on their own. However, I believe it is still worth the money for a special occasion and was a lovely start to our evening. Service was great as well and attentive. Was overall great experience would go again.

    Ordered the sharing steak which came out 80% fat and no meat. The portion size was a standard individual steam not a sharing size. The only person working was not interested in serving and it took us around 10 minutes for him to come over, and whilst he did refund us for the steak, we did then have to go hungry for the evening as we were in town for a concert and had no more time for food. He refused to take responsibility and said he had not seen the steak so could not comment - he brought it to our table and it was obvious from looking at it. He tried to say the kitchen did quality control - they had cut it in to slices there was no feasible way they would not have seen how little meant was on there compared to fat. He then attempted to blame the supplier over every member of staff there who should have done quality control. He seemed incredibly uninterested in the whole ordeal. As we were leaving, another couple called him over with the exact same issue. This was not an isolated event and I would not recommend anyone to eat here because of this.

    Food was really tasty and pretty reasonable, but took over an hour to come. They didn’t have one of their mains available which seemed like a miss, considering the menu only had 6 to choose from.

    Food and service were phenomenal. Steaks were done perfectly and the croquettes were possibly the best I've ever had.

    Really enjoyed our early evening meal. Excellent sourcing, great service. The steaks were excellent and the sides of frites and asparagus particularly hit the spot.

    Couldn’t fault it. Every aspect of the meal was spot on and tbh for not a lot of money! If I didn’t live in Essex this would be my local!! 5*

    Food was great but was it worth the painfully long wait.....probably not. The waitress kept apologising for the delay in, first the drinks arriving, then the food and then the fact that the sides arrived around 5 minutes after the meat. The steaks were beautifully cooked and the sides tasty but how they can justify the £6 my friend was charged for 2 sticks of tenderstem, 3 green beans & 3 sticks of asparagus, left me a bit speechless. Overall, disappointing

    Such a great find in Brighton. The food was incredible, the best value for money Wagyu beef. The most delicious mac and cheese and asparagus. Wonderful staff and wine list. If only this restaurant was in London.

    Steaks where perfectly cooked and great value , the wagyu in particular! I feel although the sides and sauces where good there was a few things that could take them to great , mash was a little watery and lacked in flavour, macoroni cheese was delicious but needed a touch more seasoning, maybe a bit more veg on the plate. chimichurri was great but peppercorn could have done with a bit more peppery heat. This is all meant as constructive it was all great as was ! Tiramasu was lovely. Service was great but felt a little forced , however this is normal with a new team in a new setting and can see that this will become more natural. All in all love what your doing 👍

    A lovely birthday treat. The wagyu steak was cooked to perfection, and they even did a large bowl of macaroni cheese as an alternative veggie option. The waiting staff were very friendly and helpful. It was quiet in the restaurant when we went, but probably because it was a mid week lunch.
