Owned by the Leigh-Jones family since 1945, English’s of Brighton is the oldest restaurant in the city, found on a site with a rich 150-year history of seafood. Take a seat at the oyster bar and chat away to the head oysterman whilst your oysters are opened in front of you, and Prosecco flows from a tap. Alternatively, choose from 2 floors of dining rooms, or a table out on the heated terrace.
The English’s of Brighton menu reflects its heritage. Seasonal creations excite and inspire, while all the classics you would expect from a seafood restaurant are also on offer. The extensive wine list boasts over 100 wines, each handpicked by Simon Leigh-Jones.
For those not in the mood for seafood, English’s offer an exquisite meat menu, including steak and kidney pudding in the colder months, and plates that aren’t just for vegetarians.
Tucked away in the heart of The Lanes, a few minutes from the seafront and Brighton railway station, English’s of Brighton encompass everything you’re looking for in a seafood restaurant and more.

A really warm welcome and taken straight to our table, menus provided really quickly along with chilled water. Left to review the menus with no pressure, all questions around the menu answered in a clear and polite manner. Wine was superb and the fish of the day was the best I've had. Cannot recommend this venue highly enough

Over the years I've often dined at English's, which is a traditional fish restaurant in the Lanes. While my fresh oysters and Dover Sole were good, my wife selected the fixed price lunch menu. Her main dish (seabass) a supposed specialty was lukewarm and over-cooked. On mentioning this to a waiter his comment was "Sorry about that". We will not return

Delicious fresh fish very well cooked. Friendly staff who gave us a glass of bubbly as a birthday treat. Rather old fashioned decor and atmosphere but that suites people like us who cannot cope with the noisy modern gastro restaurants!

I have been before a few years back and wanted to revisit. Location is in the lanes and there are plenty of nice pubs nearby. The restaurant is really attractive with white table cloths and immaculately laid tables. I started with muscles they were terrific taste and portion size were excellent. I had the lobster and crab pasta for main which was tasty but the pasta was quite thick for my liking. Everyone else had fish for main and they were very complimentary of the food. We had a table for 4 and everyone enjoyed the food and commented on what a great restaurant it was. Service was very attentive but not over the top. Wine list was reasonably priced the Gruner Weitliner was very reasonably priced and overall the bill was good value for the quality of food ambience and service. Under £300 including service with all 4 of us having 3 courses and two bottles of wine and pre dinner drinks. This restaurant has been around for many years and will hopefully be around for many more. Sorry I don’t live closer. Treat yourself you won’t regret a visit.
