At Rum Kitchen we try to honour the essence of this all day party. We don’t simply take an order, do a check back and wave our guests goodbye – we take them on a journey. We believe rum cocktails can make anyone dance, jerk BBQ is the tastiest way to cook food and our amazing DJ’s help bring the carnival soundtrack to our guests. And we do all of this with inclusivity at our heart – whether you’re a team member, a guest or an industry partner – Rum Kitchen is for everyone.

The food was nice (particularly the jerk wings), although the staff bought our mains and starters at the same time and it had also only taken about 10 minutes to arrive, so we ended up being in and out really quickly. The music was a bit too loud for dinner in my opinion, it felt more like i was in vodka revs.

Very good meal over here, food was very tasty and the service was excellent too! All in all, I’d happily return here or whatever branch is nearby!

We went there to begin our mini moon and they were very kind. We got complimentary Prosecco and a nice flower on table - its all about the details.

The staff were very nice and kind too

Great food, very loud music which is the ambience but a bit too loud for my tastes!

Warm welcome at the door (great) and upon entering, we quickly realised this place is for people of a certain (not middle!) age. Volume of music quite off-putting and had to near shout to be heard across the gable. Food tasty. Staff pleasant and service good although at speed. It felt like you were being rushed to order, eat, pay and go so the table could be turned around again. The adherence to mask wearing and social distancing by staff was patchy / non-existent for at least 3 staff members in the one hour we were there. All in all, our high expectations based on reviews of RK’s London locations were sadly not met in Brighton.
