Brighton Reviews

I started my food blog back in 2014 and each week I aim to explore a new spot in Brighton & Hove. Since it launched I’ve written over 100 restaurant reviews and I’ve eaten in even more restaurants. If you’re looking for somewhere new to dine in Brighton, take a look at my collection of honest reviews below, which cover everything from restaurants and cafes to supper clubs and pop-ups. Or, if there’s something specific you’re looking for, just tweet @foodieeshe or leave a comment on the blog.


  • Having just booked a trip to visit Colombia and Central America, receiving an invite to visit Café Malbec, the new venture from the Latino America team, couldn’t have been timed any better. I’ve visited Latino America several times and always enjoyed the succulent steaks and well-paired wines, so I was intrigued to see what Café Malbec had to offer.

  • The Salt Room has launched a new Afternoon Tea menu with a twist – it’s inspired by the seaside. Introducing locally sourced seafood and its signature candyfloss into the mix, it’s created something sure to turn foodies’ heads. As a fish lover, I thought it sounded like an absolute treat and I snapped up the restaurant’s invitation to try it out.

  • Since I’ve taken the leap from employed to self-employed I’ve been working in a little office space downstairs in our house. Two weeks in, cabin fever set in and Simon and I began to get a little tetchy with each other. He works from home the majority of the time and although I love him to bits, we’re definitely the sort of couple that needs our own space occasionally. Cue my search for coffee shops with good working spaces and free WiFi.

  • Ten Green Bottles: Unpretentious wine tastings showcasing little-known wines There was a time when Catherine and I would spend at least three hours getting ready before heading out to a…

  • One of my fondest childhood memories is going swimming at The King Alfred Leisure Centre, coming out hair all wet and stinking of chlorine, and finding my mum waiting for me with a cone of salty, fat chips, drenched in vinegar. Chips never tasted or smelt as good as they did then and nothing warmed me up as fast either. Until I stumbled across BeFries on West Street, that is.

  • There was a time when Browns on Duke Street, was THE place to be seen. A place for the upper echelons of society – the folk who can afford to park their flashy car on double yellows outside and not bat an eyelid at a £60 parking ticket. However, the calibre of restaurants in Brighton has gone through the roof lately, so like me, you probably haven’t thought to dine at Browns for years.

  • If you’re new to Brighton and looking to make friends or perhaps meet someone special, supper clubs should be on your to-do list. There are usually several happening each week in the city (check out Tabl.com for a list of them) and the organisers don’t tack on a single person supplement because they are designed as social dining events where you often share a table or course with other diners.

  • Brighton has a reputation for being a hub for conscious-minded businesses and Silo, the UK’s first and only zero-waste restaurant, bakery and coffee house, is one of the city’s great food successes. It’s tucked away in the Bohemian North Laine area and easily recognised by the huge No. 39 painted on the exterior wall.

  • My family are originally from Portland in Jamaica and good, well-seasoned food, is as important as breathing to them. So much so, the day before they come to visit they’ll cook up a feast, seasoned within an inch of its life, and bring it with them to ensure a pleasant journey.

  • How are those New Year’s resolutions going for you? Still eating healthily and running three times a week? I didn’t think so… Don’t worry I’m not judging you – I’m in the same boat as you. What you need is somewhere to make it nice and easy for you. Somewhere with a breakfast, lunch and dinner menu that’s wholesome, healthy and nutritious, without sugars or additives.
