We had lunch here, choosing the set 2 course menu for £14.95 each.My partner had the Moules as a starter and was very impressed by the chilli sauce. I had soup which was delicious. We were slightly disappointed with the Fish Pie. I must say I have had a lot better, we thought there was too little fish and too... More

Let's start with the positives - if you sit outside in the summer the atmosphere is fantastic. I also found the staff to be polite & helpful. The food is pretty good but English's is renowned as Brighton's top fish restaurant yet I can think of at least 4 or 5 better fish restaurants in the City.I find the decor... More

We decided to try here on our first night of our anniversary weekend. We've seen it before but never got round to trying it. So glad we did as we'll definitely be coming back. Pleasant and efficient service. Hubby not a big fish eater but decided to try lobster thermidor and he loved it! I had the best fish pie... More

Its 51 minutes by train from London and worth it for a relaxed lunch, excellent service, prosecco on tap, great oysters & delightful fresh fish & seafood at a reasonable price.

Very good place. Amazing atmosphere. I really enjoyed the food and the environment. I hardly recomend it for a proper English mish in a lovely old fashion place.

One of our oldest established restaurants, still owned by the same family for decades, it has a great atmosphere and service. The food is delicious and far more reasonably priced than I remembered from the 80's. Never had anything on their board or menu that I've not enjoyed. Lot's of space and outdoor seating too.

We had Sea Bass that was succulent and perfectly flavoured and their... More

What a wonderful experience not only in the quality of the food, the perfect service and the ambience! It is an institution which does not rely on it's past reputation. A must for anyone who loves seafood. It is faultless!
