In trendy and diverse Brighton, sophisticated culture and holistic hippiedom team up with British seaside kitsch. An escape for frazzled city workers, restaurants in Brighton range from elegant and high end, to traditional fish and chip shops. Everything in between is catered for, and Brighton restaurants offer an amazing choice for vegetarians and vegans, especially in the arty North Laine district. While you’re in Brighton, must-sees include the Victorian-era Brighton Pier, and the Taj-Mahal inspired Royal Pavilion- an ostentatious pleasure palace built between 1787 and 1823.
Perched on the seafront and boasting impressive sea views, an authentic British seaside experience can be found at Regency Restaurant. The Regency’s been around since the 1930s, offering perfect fish and chips and a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Despite the Regency’s popularity, they’ve kept their prices affordable, and they offer a range of more gourmet options, including moules marinière.
For veggies and vegans, Terre à Terre is Brighton’s gourmet vegetarian restaurant. Centrally located, the chefs at Terre à Terre specialise in experimental, innovative, and delicious meat-free options. Expect menu items like buttermilk-soaked halloumi in chip shop batter, and baked aubergine with tahini.
