Excellent as always

I first ate at English's many years ago, I now make sure that whenever I am in Brighton I make a bee line to the restaurant as I know that whatever I order will be cooked to perfection and this visit was different. My husband and I had lunch here on Saturday, we sat outside in the sunshine whilst... read more

We sat outside in the square - great location. The staff are nice. I had the ceviche which was pretty good and the whole sea bass which was delicious. My husband had the squid to start which was also good and had the bass fillet. His main dish also had the squid on the side - not quite sure why... More

This is quite a posh, upmarket establishment. I had a very good meal here, expenses paid, in a very attractive environment. If I had to pay personally, I probably wouldn’t come often, but for a special treat, I’d certainly recommend. English’s is not far from the sea front, and is a spacious restaurant with modern design. The service was meticulous,... More

Our group of 4 spend a lovely 2 and a half hours sitting outside this beautiful restaurant enjoying the sunshine, people watching and more importantly grazing on the amazing fresh seafood that just kept coming, brought to our table by a variety of their well trained, knowledgeable and friendly staff. If I could afford to spend every Saturday afternoon having... More

We had dinner on Saturday night with a couple of friends and had a wonderful time. The food was excellent, the service we received was superb and the atmosphere was very relaxed - Thank you for a lovely evening.

I found this restaurant while I was visiting Brighton last month. What a find it was. The square in which the restaurant is situated in was simply buzzing. The sun was out, a soothing jazz band was playing in the center of the square and people were all outside eating inside and out and in all adjacent restaurants. The atmosphere... More

Once again an excellent experience at English's. Set menu of moules mariniere followed by home freshly made (of course) fish cake. Washed down by a glass of Prosecco. Those who have been before will know the high standards at this quintessentially English restaurant is famous for; well I'm pleased to say the standards are still high! The service was attentive...

I dropped in to eat at English's on 16 July. It was a lovely, balmy evening and the town was humming with people, conversation and music. Luckily there were two or three tables free at English's, and I was escorted to my table by the elegant, and highly efficient, Anna from Poland. I was dealt with speedily and in no... More
