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.

Superb lunch, wine and staff!!

Escaping from Brighton centre madness for good food - we were not disappointed. The menu is awesome and the food beautifully cooked. I felt guilty that we only ordered pub standards - fish and chips and steak & chips - staples when you're never sure what the food is going to be like. Also had... read more

Had roast beef - the meat was chewy and stringy, the roast potatoes tasted like they'd been recycled and reheated, and the yorkshire pudding was dry. Couldn't finish the meal. Later that evening the additional unexpected afters of an upset tummy meant I couldn't just forget it so felt I needed to warn others off. Would not recommend going here... More

Freezing cold miserable evening but The Chimney House was warm and inviting. Food was excellent, a feast of flavours and unusual ingredients. This gastropub offered better cooking than I have recently tasted in Michelin starred restaurants! Well done to the team, keep up the good work. We will definitely return.

I made the effort to visit this pub whilst visiting Brighton based on a friends request. It's a little way from the main town but that makes the pub even better (in my opinion). I was so glad I made the trip, it was well worth it. The pub has a great relaxed atmosphere serving great ales and largers. The... More

I'm biased because it's my local, but after a few turbulent years this lovely gastro-pub has settled down with it's now established 'owner' Charlie - great chef and head of a lovely team of staff that makes this pub feel like a real local, and yet serves outstanding food with a clientele arriving from across Brighton and beyond. It's so... More

A perfect party venue. Flexible and well organised with the most amenable staff and very tasty buffet. Our friends loved it; we loved it. Thank you for helping us create a truly memorable day.

Went for lunch on Sunday 12th for a family birthday meal. 10 of us + baby. I've eaten all over Brighton (born here) so no most places. We recently moved to 7 dials and was given recommendation. I remember when it was the old Exeter pub years ago. We were very surprised how good the food was. Very interesting starters... More
