Eating Your Way Around Brighton – Ultimate Food Tour

Brighton Pier

Often referred to as London-on-Sea, Brighton has become famous for quite a few reasons over the years. Its iconic pier and colourful Pride parades are just some of the things that give Brighton its energetic and eclectic character. 

Away from the hustle and bustle, foodies might be wondering what Brighton has to offer. Well, quite a lot actually, as Brighton has many top-rated eateries just waiting for you to discover. 

With trains to Brighton departing from the capital regularly (well, as regular as they can be in the UK), there’s no reason not to take a trip to the seaside to broaden your food horizons and try out something different. With that said, here are just some of the best places you should check out for food when hanging out in Brighton.  

Cheap And Cheerful

If you’re just looking for a quick little something, you won’t be disappointed as Brighton has loads of great food that won’t break the bank.

Compass Point Eatery along the seafront serves up your share of hearty grub from Instagram worthy pancakes (blame the Millenials for that trend) to the old British favourite, fish and chips. The portions are more than a quick grab and go, but if you’re in the market for a proper sit-down meal, this nautical-themed restaurant will do the trick.

However, if you are looking for something on the move, Sunbirds Deli on London Road will be just the thing you’re looking for. Recently listed as the top vegan eatery in Brighton, Sunbirds Deli creates Middle Eastern and Mediterranean recipes including soups, pies, salads and mezes to go.

Somewhere In The Middle

When it comes to evening meals, if you’re looking for something a little classier, there are plenty of places to try. 

Banqueano, in the city centre, is an Argentinian delight cooking up some of the best steaks in Brighton. While it might not be the cheapest option for dinner, it certainly won’t disappoint when it comes to quality. 

Just a little bit further out from the main streets of Brighton you’ll find The Station Hotel. Voted on TripAdvisor as the 2nd best place for pub food in Brighton, we’re sure you’ll love their food as well. The gastro-pub vibes are clear with the likes of halloumi burgers, gnocchi and honey glazed ham gracing the menu. 

Top Of The Range Eats

If you’re really splashing the cash, then prepare to be dazzled by the fine dining on offer in Brighton.

One of the highest-rated restaurants, Ginger Man, has everything you look for in a fine dining experience. From the ambient seating area to the delectable menu, the experience here is second to none. With exquisite presentation, you’ll find it hard not to be getting your phone out at every course to take a cheeky snap of your dish.

You can’t visit Brighton without getting some seafood and there’s no better place for that than The Little Fish Market. While the price might make your eyes water (unless you can afford it), the quality of the fish you’re getting will soon make you see reason. Expertly presented and cooked to perfection, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better place for some proper fish.

Cosy Café’s  

Afternoon Tea

Away from the dizzying prices of the high-end restaurants, you’ll undoubtedly need to stop in for a cup of tea or coffee whilst staying in Brighton.

The Coffee Counter, nestled in the centre of the city, has everything you need from a little café. Not only do they serve up all the hot beverages you’d expect, but they also do food. They’re a particular fan the toastie, so make sure you order one alongside your cappuccino.

If you’re looking for something a little more ‘coastal cute’, then Leman Tea Room is the place to go. The afternoon tea look of this café gives it a quintessential charm that makes their rustic cakes look right at home.  

While Brighton certainly has a lot to offer in terms of things to do and see, it also has a rich foodie scene too. Hopefully, this guide has given you some inspiration when planning your next trip to this seaside metropolis.
