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.

Really lovely to go back , fewer tables now of course we sat inside but busy outside on dining area. Would rather waiters weren’t wearing masks but realise that it’s early days yet . Served very courteously.Very nice food oysters and lobster and steak and kidney pudding for my husband. My one complaint is that the lovely old interior was modernised a few years ago and it seems very stark but other than that all good .

On what had been a very wet and generally miserable day, we were made most welcome for a celebratory meal - my wife's birthday. The welcome was warm, the service attentive but not overly so and the food was top notch. A totally enjoyable evening.

Set menu with a steak and the free house white wine was actually amazing hahaha steak was perfect but salty or was it chips or the peppercorn sauce :? Oyster great Croquettes was weird not enough lobster Bloody Mary oyster was strange far too spicy but liked the way the acidity from tomatoes Overall enjoyable experience and tasty but maybe a tad too much salt on mains!
