I go to English's every time I visit Brighton, the seafood is always extremely fresh, well priced and the service is exceptional.

I've been to this resturant many times and it was always a delight, but the chef has now changed and the food menu and quality is disappointing. I went with my mum for lunch and had the halibut whilst my mum had fish and chips. Both meals were fairly average and therefore did not meet up to the expectation of... More

My wife and i were walking around Brighton on Monday having a chilled restful day. It was sunny and the lanes were clear but the front was very windy. We cut back into town and came to English's. Looked just right - small but crisp and tidy. We walked in a luckily there was a table for the two of... More

Maybe I'm being picky or unrealistic, but a restaurant at a seaside town should know how to prepare fish. The menu mainly consists of fish courses, but of the three meals at our table, not one was beyond okay. The skin of the sea bass was not crispy, the cod was overcooked and the rest was ho-hum. But, that said,... More

There was nothing exceptional about this restaurant but, for a nice meal out as a couple, it was a pleasant evening with tasty food.

I took my wife for some high class seafood. It's probably the best seafood restaurant in Brighton. They were out of the Dover Sole so my wife had slip soles. She loved them even though she doesn't usually like to debone the fish. I had monkfish wrapped in prosciutto. I recommend them both. The only issue was that we orderd... More

Visited here for a celebration meal for our wedding anniversary and was not disappointed. The menu was quite extensive as was the wine list. All round presentation ans service was first class. The starter of squid was excellent and perfectly cooked. The main courses were strange in the fact that vegetables were quite sparse but the amount of fish was... More

English's appears to be a bit of a Brighton institution, and generally appears to have some excellent reviews - so we were happy to get a table here on what appeared to be a busy Monday evening, which is always a good sign. The restaurant is based in several rooms in tall but tiny houses on the edge of The... More
