12 Incredible places to eat in Brighton

With its diverse communities, quirky shopping and large cultural, music and arts scenes it’s no wonder Brighton is, and remains one of the most popular UK destinations. To help provide you with fuel whilst you’re weaving in and out of all the shops in the lanes or bobbing along the pier we’ve sourced the most delicious restaurants for you to try.

The best part?

They are all a hop, skip or a jump away from Brighton Train Station.

The Coal Shed @TheCoalShed1

Nestled in the heart of Brighton is The Coal Shed, a gourmet steak and seafood restaurant serving up only the finest of foods. Using the highest quality ingredients, their menu is not prescriptive. Offering a variety of cuts and weights of meat and fish along with a variety of side orders, you can rest assured that each individual will be catered for.

Curry Leaf Café @curryleafecaff

Just a stone’s throw away from the beach, tucked away in Brighton’s Lanes is Curry Leaf Café. Serving up a slice of South Indian street life, head on in for anything from a quick coffee and snack to a luxurious four-course meal. Expect a café, not a restaurant, which makes no compromises when it comes to quality.

Food for Friends @FoodforFriends

Brighton’s award-winning vegetarian restaurant provides tasty, affordable and honest food which is homemade using only the freshest local produce. Priding themselves on serving only innovative and delicious dishes, they keep all food lovers coming back for more.

The Chilli Pickle @TheChilliPickle

Originally located at Meeting House Lane and now found at myhotel Brighton, The Chilli Pickle has built itself a national reputation. Taking inspiration from their time in India, the owners have created a taste sensation. Can’t dine in? Use their fantastic delivery system to enjoy their food anywhere (the beach makes a perfect dining view, if the weather plays ball that is).

Pizzaface @Pizzafacepizza

Alternative Train Station: Aldrington

Pizzaface was born due to a lack of good pizza around, although they’ll be quick to tell you that good pizza isn’t hard to do. Using fresh vegetables that are delivered daily and only the best meats that can be found, Pizzaface have set out to make the best pizza in town. Their menu also includes vegan and gluten-free pizzas too.

La Choza @LaChoza2

If you’re looking for authentic Mexican food in Brighton, then look no further than La Choza. Found in the North Laine, they serve delicious, slow-cooked Mexican street food. Expect to fill your boots with fresh tacos, burritos, and quesadillas with a wide range of fillings. Grab your Sombrero and get stuck in.

The Troll’s Pantry at the Hobgoblin @HobBrighton

If burgers are your thing then The Troll’s Pantry at The Hobgoblin should be your first stop. With hand baked buns, homemade sources and the best meat and cheese around, their burgers are a taste sensation. Served street food style (don’t expect plates or cutlery), you get fine tasting food without the fine dining experience.

Cloud 9 @Cloud9Brighton

Cloud 9 is a sweet-tooth’s dream. With a wide selection of cakes, waffles, ice creams, milkshakes and hot drinks to boot, Cloud 9 is the perfect pit stop to satisfy those sugar cravings. Not to mention their interior will make you feel like you’re actually eating on Cloud 9 too.

Sixty Four Degrees @chef64degrees

If you look closely through the Brighton Lanes you will find a small restaurant with an open kitchen filled with passionate chefs concocting an evolving menu of tasty small plates. Rest assured that all meals are cooked using fresh and local produce. The restaurant was also voted 24th in the National Restaurant top 100 list in 2015.

Lucky Beach @LuckyBrighton

Found along the sea-front Lucky Beach serves 35-day aged burgers from local conversation stock along with a lot of bacon which pairs perfectly with their foreign and domestic beers and wine by the carafe. If burgers aren’t you’re thing you can also grab a salad, sandwich or some fish to dine in or takeaway. Now that’s what we call ‘lucky. ‘

Blackbird Tea Rooms @blackbirdwitter

If you find yourself in Brighton needing breakfast, lunch or a little treat, look no further than the award winning vintage tea rooms right in the heart of Brighton. Set in a fabulous old building, the tea room extends over two floors and if you happen to visit on a warm day, their courtyard garden provides the perfect setting for enjoying a slice of cake or two.

The Gingerman @TheGingerChef

If you’re looking for a small, intimate restaurant close to Brighton’s seafront then look no further. Creating uncomplicated, full-flavoured food made from only the freshest, highest quality seasonal produce, The Gingerman’s menu is a sight to behold.
