A little bit of Brighton history with a French twist. A traditional but quirky restaurant with lots of character, excellent service and truly delicious food, beautifully cooked and presented. Not to be missed on a visit to Brighton!

Fabulous surroundings and food. Tables just a little too close together but excellent service and food. Crushed peas were lovely. Tartar sauce clearly homemade and with a kick. Portions a little on the small side if you're very hungry, but a great experience. We go to Brighton once a year and always bok one nights table at English's.

We dined here recently, finding ourselves overnighting in Brighton. Had a good walk around the area in the daytime looking for a restaurant and were glad we chose English's. The tables are close together, but no drama for us as it was a quiet night. The service is real old school which we love. Fabulous lobster, and great fillet steak.... More

When I saw this from the outside I have to say that my heart sank. It just all looks so old fashioned and not my sort of place at all. But I have to say that despite it being a bit frumpy, the food was excellent, and the service, specially with the wine, was great too. There is a certain... More

Am in Brighton looking for a restaurant to book for tonight. English's looks promising but every time a question is put to the manager (Andre) or a slight criticism noted, the response (from Andre) is the same, thank you for coming bla bla. He doesn't actually address the comment appropriately! Why Andre?

Dear debbiehawkins76 The answer to your question ‘Is Andre’s response automatically generated’ is no. Being a privately owned small business, we do not have the luxury of a PR company to handle all our correspondence and presence on the net which seems to escalate on a daily basis. Up until I received your review of my review replies, I was... More

Visited with my boyfriend for our anniversairy, perfect choice. Amazing seafood in a cosy venue. Slightly long wait for our mains but completely forgotten once the food arrived. Can't wait to go back to Brighton so that we can eat there again.

We sat at the bar and had a fabulous meal and were spoiled with excellent service. Tasty snacks and beverages were offered as free tasters. Divine!
