A good venue for a long Sunday lunch on a miserable weather day. The unusual layout provides a number of small rooms over different floors with atmospheric art covering the walls. A good selection of primarily fish based menu ingredients with friendly yet efficient service makes for a pleasurable experience at good value prices. Highly recommended.

We booked to come to Brighton for Valentines and had booked a table at the English's of Brighton after hearing the amazing reviews and quality of the food, after arriving we were shuffled upstairs into a bit of a small room, I understand a lot of the places in Brighton are small and crammed though and realistically, it was valentines...

After reading the reviews we decided to give English's ago rather than heading back to Riddle and Finns. We were able to book a table for the saturday night and we very grateful when we called to push it back slightly as we were running 10 minutes behind. When we turned up we were seating quickly and someone came to... More

Like most people I have an affinity with fellow mammals. Serve me up a joint of sheep, cow, deer, pig or rabbit and I’m as happy as a pig in… well, you know what I mean. However, when it comes to food I am mostly at one with fish. It’s the look of them that so alluring. It’s like being... More

one of our favourite restaurants Nick, Antonio and Jonathan always welcoming, they have a very low turnover of staff so you are always served by someone you know. my wife had sea bream on the bone which she said was one of the best fish dishes she has tasted. I went for something completely different, Englishes Steak and Kidney Pudding,... More

After a 6-month break, we visited this restaurant again for Valentines night. Extremely lucky to get a table, but we book well in advance and were seated quickly on arrival. That said, we were sat next to a rather rowdy table of young girls who clearly had no appreciation for fine dining; so the meal was less than romantic! As... More

Went for a Sunday afternoon lunch with my wife, son & his girlfriend, sitting at bar and had a great time. Food was fantastic as usual, and the staff could not do enough for us. I will be back soon on the normal Wednesday evening with friends. My wife (first visit) cant wait to return with some friends for lunch.... More

I had oysters as an appetiser, crab for starter, halibut fillet for main, partner had no starter and fillet steak for main, all the courses were really nice. We also had a bottle of champagne, a vodka and coke... More

We have lunch here as often as we can - about once every six weeks. It is always good. The menu has excellent choices and the cooking is thoughtful. At our last visit I had a delicious crab bisque. The service is traditional with starched table clothes and silver service. Love it. If you enjoy a good restaurant you won't... More
