I love it that English's is charmingly old fashioned. They're trying to keep up with the 21st century with a new website and a new 5 course tasting menu. I tried it for lunch yesterday, enticed by the special offer of a free 3 glass wine flight to accompany the food. It was good-ish but the standard of the dishes... More

We came back to this restaurant for a second time as we missed it so much. Once again the food was extremely tasty and the staff were second to none. Polite and speedy with the service make this one of the best restaurants in Brighton if not the best.... will be back again

This is a fantastic seafood restaurant. A cut above the rest. But those of us that are mobility challenged need to be aware that the toilets are up two flights of very steep stairs. However from the moment you open the door you are welcomed and hosted in a very professional and amicable manner. The food is fresh, mostly local.... More

Fabulous food in a beautiful restaurant. Dining room layout not particularly private in it's layout but it's not to it's detriment as the quality of the food is outstanding.

A very enjoyable sea food menu, eaten "al fresco" if the weather is good, with street entertainment and in the centre of The Lanes.
