Doggy visit

I love The Chimney House. Each time I visit my friend in Brighton with Betsy my 16 month old puppy we go for lunch here. The first time we went Betsy was about 5 months old and they welcomed us and went out of their way to look after Betsy with treats and water - and they always recognise her!... read more

I took the Wife. She was so drunk, which is not unsual. Sorry to the man in blue, we did not mean to offend. Let's hope that your condition clears up. Has anyone else heard the strange sound coming from the gents?

Fantastic Sunday lunch, booked for 8 of us and it was great, really friendly staff who were attentive and polite on a busy afternoon service. Had the roast beef and it was excellent, great Yorkshires and potatoes. Thanks for a Fantastic meal and excellent afternoon. Will be back soon.

When someone asked me about the idea of lunch at the chimney house I said where? I know most of Brighton but it still manages to supprise me with little gems like this! I'm very happy we came! Greeted with a smile, brought some drinks and sat outside in the sun. The area is so friendly! The place wasn't very... More

Hidden away from the seafront and even the main roads in Brighton, decided to eat here as it was the closest decently rated eaterie to my hotel. Very glad I made this choice - it's a wonderful place: the decor is great, look and feel was excellent and the food was fantastic. I had the pea soup starter and the... More

Went in for business meeting, ended up stopping for lunch, we ordered chicken sandwiches, simple request, easy to do well one would presume, on arriving the sandwich had a tiny piece of chicken on the edge of the bread, nothing else but butter on the rest of the bread, I only realised this as I happened to take the top...

Been trying to get in here on a Sunday for a while and so glad we got a table. Our roasts were very tasty although could have been hotter, but the puddings, oh yeah they were AMAZING. Will defiantly be going back to try mid week menu. Staff and atmosphere were perfect.

My second visit to this tucked-away establishment, I decided to stay for food, having scouted the opportunity the first time. I'd heard of their penchant for local produce, foraged leaves and rare breed meat which captured my curiosity. Much of it is organic, which always ticks my boxes. On this occasion I opted for the vegetarian platter and was blown... More

Excellent adventurous food. Easily among the best in Brighton. I've eaten here several times and the trick is to trust their judgement of the latest local seasonal food they have got in. The weirder it looks on the menu then the better it will usually be. Today's vegetarian tasting platter was a joy - pickled turnips with malt, kale fritters,... More

Located just a short walk from Seven Dials, the Chimney House offers something for everyone from a cup of tea and a slice of cake, pint of Harveys, glass of prosecco, dirty little burger or a relaxed three course meal. We strive to source our ingredients from within Sussex with fish from Shoreham and Newhaven, fruit and vegetables from local farms and glasshouses as well as meat from Garlic Wood Farm. We are open all day Tuesday to Sunday and look forward to seeing you even if its just for a jar of chutney.
