I have eaten at English's for many years. It has excellent food, a lovely ambience, friendly staff and is exactly the right place in which to take friends and family.

Owned by the Leigh-Jones family since 1945, English’s of Brighton is the oldest restaurant in the city, found on a site with a rich 150-year history of seafood. Take a seat at the oyster bar and chat away to the head oysterman whilst your oysters are opened in front of you, and Prosecco flows from a tap. Alternatively, choose from 2 floors of dining rooms, or a table out on the heated terrace.

The English’s of Brighton menu reflects its heritage. Seasonal creations excite and inspire, while all the classics you would expect from a seafood restaurant are also on offer. The extensive wine list boasts over 100 wines, each handpicked by Simon Leigh-Jones.

For those not in the mood for seafood, English’s offer an exquisite meat menu, including steak and kidney pudding in the colder months, and plates that aren’t just for vegetarians.

Tucked away in the heart of The Lanes, a few minutes from the seafront and Brighton railway station, English’s of Brighton encompass everything you’re looking for in a seafood restaurant and more.

    The location is ideal. We had lovely time. The food was excellent. Regarding the staff we highly appreciated the man and spanish accent woman but were disappointed by the east country girl who was really not up to the level of the restaurant. We also were sorry to be charged for the bread as this was proposed to us without prior warning we would have to pay for it later on.
