English's of Brighton
The South’s leading independent seafood restaurant & oyster bar offers you both classical favourites & modern seafood dishes coupled with friendly yet attentive service.
Whether you choose to dine in our recently re-styled dining rooms, at our original marble-topped oyster bar or our comfortable, heated, al fresco terrace with views over the bustling square, you can enjoy our extensive a la carte menu or one of our simpler set-menus. English’s is unique in that it has been serving seafood on this site since the 1890’s and remains family owned and operated.
Whilst tastes have changed over the years, our ethos of quality seafood, warm welcome, attentive service and value for money remains unchanged.
We also pride ourselves on our wine list, which now offers you over 120 wines, each one personally chosen by us for your enjoyment. Our range of wines by the glass and carafe is also extensive and excellent value.
For parties we can seat up to 55 guests over 3 inter-connecting dining rooms on the first floor. More information can be found by locating our website, Facebook page or Twitter feed.
We look forward to welcoming you soon!
