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.


  • 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.

  • I’ve discovered some of the best restaurants in Brighton on the recommendation of chefs and restauranteurs. So when a friend, and the founder of Papa Pita, recommended a brand new pop-up, FOUR Sharing Kitchen from Chef Aaron Dalton, it had my attention straight away.

  • There’s been an influx of burger restaurants and pizzerias in Brighton of late and whilst I enjoy both, they aren’t in the least bit healthy. So, the discovery that a brand new noodle bar had popped up in September, had me very excited. Noo Noodles sits on Cranbourne Street, just on your way up to Churchill Square and is independently owned, with two branches in Brighton and Southend-on-Sea.

  • It’s a great concept “naturally fast food, that both tastes good and does you good”, so I can see why people were hyped that LEON was coming to Brighton. The restaurant chain focuses on seasonal, fresh, nutritious, fast food and opened back at the end of September, with an ‘all guns blazing’ PR push.

  • Although there are ample Thai restaurants in Brighton & Hove (e.g. Sukhothai, Street Thai and Chilli Cafe), few live up to the dishes I sampled in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Koh Tao, Koh Samui and Ko Phi-Phi. Luckily, I’ve now found somewhere that serves Thai food that comes close to what I had on my backpacking adventures – Giggling Squid in Hove.

  • There’s something about the Italian way of life that appeals to me. Firstly and most obviously, the food is quite simply delicious. Secondly, the people are passionate and lively. Thirdly it’s completely family oriented. These three observations perfectly sum up Neapolitan pizzeria, Fatto A Mano.
