Brighton’s restaurant scene is one of the finest in the UK, where new openings (like Redroaster, which opened May 2023) help to push old-school favourites to even greater heights. The result is a city that has put food at the top of the agenda, with something to cater for everyone, whether you're a committed carnivore or diehard vegan.
If you want fine dining with wine to match, a food market replete with local options right on the beach or a brunch spot to ease yourself into the day, then you won't leave Brighton disappointed. Plus, with so much to do in between meals, you’re guaranteed to work up an appetite. Hungry? Read on for our pick of the best restaurants in Brighton right now.
