I had dinner here because one of my 3 Korean guests had eaten here before. The resturant is tiny and the tables are very small and close together. It has the feel of a 1960 - 70's type resurant which was all very interesting. We were greeted in the bar area by a very pleasant gentleman, whom I assume was... More

A fabulous traditional, very comfortable, white table cloth restaurant. Very attentive and happy staff. Fruit de mare was excellent and a great sharing price. Very tasty meals all round and NO chips!! Excellent.

I want to give this place a good review because I had had a great time. Service was top notch and the food looked delicious. The problem is, I found both my starter of poached halibut and my main of bouillabaisse, extremely bland. I couldn't distinguish any fish apart from the salmon. The White fish was tasteless and the sauce... More

While staying in Brighton, my husband and I visited English's for dinner one evening and enjoyed it immensely. I had the Loch Ryan Oysters for starters and they were delicious and fresh. I then had the Grilled Lobster for my main course and it was very tender and fresh as well. My husband had the Dover Sole which he enjoyed.... More

Unfortunately we didn't book - on a Friday evening, which normally in a restaurant, is asking to be shown the door! However, the excellent staff at English's accommodated us at the oyster bar, and what a fantastic atmosphere. Great Oysters, Great Seafood Platter washed down with some of their beautiful champagne. The barman was full of information about any of... More

We've enjoyed the seafood offering there with particularly good selection of oysters, both fresh and cooked. Service was good and friendly, although not memorable. I would certainly visit again.
