I left a glowing 5* review of this restaurant back in November 2015 close to its opening, and have returned many times with family and friends since then and had very enjoyable meals . So I was particularly disappointed last Sunday when I visited for lunch with my daughter and we ordered Roasts - I chose the lamb and she,... More

Emily A, Owner at Busby and Wilds, responded to this review

Welll, I shall try again response no 2; (did you take down your previous review as it was actually 4* & not 5* as stated, reinforcing the many inaccuracies, or was that just for pettiness?) I apologise that you did not like your slow roast shoulder of Lamb, and it is a shame that you did not mention this to... More

A group of 6 of us had a terrific meal here on a Friday evening as a family meal out. The bar had a very good selection of local beers, including a new personal favourite West Pier - Brighton Bier's pale ale. The food was extremely tasty. For starter I had a wholesome and flavoursome roast celeriac soup, but the... More

We were staying at the camp site within walking distance of this restaurant and tried it based on recommendations on TripAdvisor. It is nothing like a pub. It is a restaurant. Service was pleasant and we received a warm welcome. Dogs are welcome here which may not go down well with some. We just had bread and olives to start... More

I've tried a few in the area and I have to say this is the best so far. Nice ambiance to the place. Good staff. Excellent food. A little bit out of the way but worth the effort!!

It's a shame, it's our 3rd visit but tonight was poor, food was definitely below par tonight, wouldn't recommend and possibly wouldn't go back. We always thought this restaurant was excellent but tonight's meal wasn't great!!! I complained to the waitress about our chunky chips being revolting, but equally my veggie burger was rubbish and to be charged a extra... More

Another great meal in this fantastic local restaurant. Emily is a great hostess and makes you feel really welcome. The food is good, the feel is just right and local art on the walls makes it even better. Well done.

We came here one rainy Sunday on the recommendation of a food blog we'd read. The price is more than most of the roasts in Brighton but it is absolutely worth it. We had the crab starter, which was delicious, followed by the roast beef. The beef was melt-in-the-mouth tender and the veg was excellent. This is one of the... More
