Great !

Escaping from the city on the bank holiday weekend, we chose the English's because of its great location and tempting menu: not disappointed! The food was great and fast to be served, wine selection was amazing and staff was very friendly !! Would definitely go back!

Had a great meal with the set menu at English's. For £16.95 for two courses it's truly excellent value for money. Food is delicious, with focus on quality rather than quantity. Service is excellent and house white excellent value for money and served lovely and chilled. A safe bet I'm Brighton. And don't forget the lovely terrace outside where you... More

We've had many enjoyable meals at English's over the years but recently returned over a bank holiday weekend, we were really let down by another local fish restaurant in the lanes on a busy bank holiday weekend (they gave our table away despite us booking in with them as they requested!) and enquired at English's for a table who were...

Monkfish cheek starter was overcooked. Very difficult to cut and too chewy. Fillet steak overcooked. Monkfish overcooked. Measly starter portion of salmon for £10.50. A fish restaurant should have been able to do better with cooking fish! Very disappointed. Prices were high especially given the quality issues.

Wandering through the Lanes in Brighton on a very wet August Lunchtime we came accross English's and liked the look of the menu and decided to give it a go. What a good idea that was. The greeting was very warm and friendly and the food was excellent quality, with a menu that just called out 'Eat Me!' Not only... More

Took my 2 daughters and grand daughter here for a treat and it was fantastic.The staff were very attentive and nothing too much for them.Its mainly a sea food restaurant and their oysters were very good.It's a little pricey but its the place to go for a treat.

This is the second time we have visited English's and yet again the food and service was brilliant. Due to an incident we were delayed getting the restaurant by an hour, the restaurant were accommodating and very sympathetic. Love this restaurant

This place is fantastic in summer and average in winter, and believe me Ive been in all seasons on many occasions. Its a nice place to eat in winter but summer you can get a table outside and listen to the buskers which are better than average. The food is mainly seafood but the quality is superb and service second... More

My partner and I celebrated our 21st anniversary dining al fresco at this lovely restaurant. We were not disappointed - the service was prompt and attentive, the food and wine were first class, the ambience was terrific and the weather was very kind. Our sea bass main course was outstanding. Thoroughly recommended.
