So where to start? The best places to eat in Brighton for lunch are in The Lanes or North Laine, where you will find cafe after enticing cafe, vegan delis, cosy coffee shops and proper, old-fashioned pubs. Pull up a chair to a pavement table and tuck into some of Brighton’s heartiest food while watching the world pass you by.
Look out for quirky Brighton food stalwarts such as The Mock Turtle (4 Pool Valley) – crammed with knick-knacks and doilies, it has an old-fashioned tea room feel. Afternoon tea progresses seamlessly to cocktails at Metrodeco (38 Upper St James’s Street), a 1930s-style tea salon with art deco furnishings.
Come dinnertime, there are plenty of classy restaurants in Brighton, with every cuisine imaginable found in The Lanes, and also in Hove, Brighton’s one-time neighbouring seaside resort that has now merged into a smart neighbourhood of the city. Those dining in Brighton on a budget will find all the usual chain restaurants in the city centre, too.
Vegetarians needn’t wonder where to eat in Brighton. This forward-thinking, liberal city is a hive of vegetarian and vegan dining. And we’re not just talking cafes – Food for Friends (17-18 Prince Albert Street) is Brighton’s original veggie restaurant: it opened more than 30 years ago and since evolved into a sophisticated, top-class establishment.
There’s also the award-winning Terre a Terre (71 East Street), one of the UK’s best vegetarian restaurants, where even the most stubborn of carnivores are likely to enjoy the fare.
No visit to the seaside is complete without a fresh seafood supper, and Brighton has tonnes of options. English’s of Brighton (29-31 East Street) is a prestigious spot known for its fine seafood and marble-and-brass oyster bar. Look out for the set menus.
Other options include Riddle & Finns I and II (12B Meeting House Lane and 139 Kings Road Arches), sister champagne and oyster bars, and Brighton seafront landmark The Regency Restaurant (131 King’s Road).
