“Brilliant atmosphere with excellent food.”
Review of The Townhouse Restaurant - CLOSED

The Townhouse Restaurant
Cuisines: British
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Good for: Special occasions
Dining options: Late Night, Breakfast, Reservations
Description: Located in the vibrant Kemp Town area of Brighton, The Townhouse provides a welcome change from stuffy restaurant dining, offering relaxed service and wonderful food. Utterly chilled out, The Townhouse not only has a dining room and bar in which to enjoy the company of friends, but a piano room where guests gather around the baby grand to sip wine and enjoy the tinkling of the ivories.

We were drawn to this restaurant mainly because of the man playing the piano but also because of the menu. And we weren't disappointed. The food was amazing and the atmosphere made it a really lovely evening. The service was brilliant and we will definitely be going back next time we're in Brighton.

We had a wonderful meal here during a recent visit to Brighton, being regulars to Kemp Town we have tried so many of the offerings and it had been some time since we had been to The Town House so we decided to return, and glad we did!

The food was excellent, the Ox Cheek in particular was to die for but the only downside on the food was that the dessert we (and most other tables) wanted was sold out!!!

Great ambiance, loved the pianist who showed great skill and a quick witted sense of humour to break into Singing in the Rain once the heavens opened outside!

The waiting staff were lovely, very attentive couldn't do enough for us and even made a point of coming over and saying Hi when we bumped into them in another local bar the next evening.

Sure to visit next time we are in town.

Me and my partner had an amazing romantic meal at this restaurant. Having tasted Malcolm's food before, we thought we would try this new venue and it did not disappoint. Malcolm's creativity and skill always makes me more adventurous and enjoy food I never thought I would. Couldn't fault the food in any way, but the service could have been a little bit more attentive. All in all a great evening.
