    A great range of options to choose from, absolutely delicious food and wine. Service very good however the ambience was somewhat lacking, we were seated upstairs in a quiet room with no music. Downstairs ambience was much better. For an upmarket restaurant a bit of music, although not too loud, would have made it feel a bit more special. However, the food was excellent, which was the main thing and we would go again.

    Wonderful find! Food and drinks were all delicious, well presented too. Lovely staff, very welcoming and attentive. Traditional restaurant, which we really enjoyed, relaxed ambience. Restaurant was full. Would have got 10 but the bill was initially overpriced so had to be re-done. But immediately resolved. Would visit again. Recommend.

    Fantastic meal and excellent service. We came here for our wedding meal during Covid and this time was for our 3rd wedding anniversary. Both times the staff were absolutely brilliant, as well as the food. We love the old-school vibe as well.

    Delicious food, gorgeously presented and friendly staff. I would only suggest adding light music for background ambience. Thanks for a lovely meal!!!

    English’s is consistently one of the best restaurants I visit, if not the best. The seafood is wonderfully fresh and beautifully cooked, and the staff always warm, well informed, and welcoming. A great experience whether for a special occasion or informal lunch. They have something for everyone. Highly recommended.

    Have been to this restaurant on many occasions. Unfortunately todays experience did not come up to previous high standards. My husband had the potted crab starter and described the water melon that was served with this as disgusting. We had a shared hot platter which was nice but not worth the £78 price tag. The Eton mess was ok but nothing special for its cost. Altogether a disappointing lunch with a bottle of wine brought the cost to nearly £200 Noisy and sadly we will not be returning as we feel that standards have fallen. As previously said we have visited many times and didn’t receive a warm welcome Corporate and mechanical

    The new menu was an utter delight along with the staff. The MD has a wonderful manner and didn’t have a single complaint. Considering how much we had we were shocked at how reasonably priced it was.

    Little gem! Had a very lovely meal here - we went looking for somewhere that would serve excellent fish and we didn’t leave disappointed. Staff were attentive but discreet. Oysters were fabulous

    Fabulous lunch we all had the hot platter to share with excellent Rose wine . The whole experience was even better because of the exemplary service from Laura our waitress . I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    English’s was recommended to me and I am very grateful for the tip. Once you’ve found it, you’ll never lose it again but the exact location is a little tricky to find (it’s slightly tucked away). We were having different parts of the menu so went quite big on wine. Then thought we’d have oysters to go with the wine. After a glass or two, deep into the meal, we realised there’d been no oysters. We didn’t need them but I never found out why. Lovely food, quiet but attentive service, great setting. I might even wear a jacket next time; it’s that sort of place. If they’ll have us back. I don’t think there’s anywhere quite like it in Brighton. Make sure you book!

    I have always loved this restaurant but this was the first time dining here with our children. They were as impressed as we always have been. Fabulous service and perfect food. Beautiful.
