  • Dish at Kindling



Kindling is food that’s kind to the soul and the environment. That means seasonal, plant based cuisine, along with ethical meat and sustainable fish. Good food made with care and enriched by fire.  

Our food promises to surprise, educate and stimulate with ‘being kind’ at the core of every creation. Set on East Street in Brighton’s Lanes the Kindling atmosphere will be laid back elegance, with an open kitchen and bar where diners can watch the kindling set alight the grill. 

There is a lunch plates menu available to enjoy throughout the day and an à la carte menu for dinner. Bookings are advisable but we do take walk-ins as well

Here at Kindling we have a range of exciting promotions and events coming up to help you get into the festive mood this season.


To start we wanted to say thank you to our customers for dining with us. So we would like to offer all of our customers who visit our restaurant during November 2021 15% off their food bill that can be enjoyed on their returning visit in January and February 2022. (Visit for terms and conditions)

Also on the 24th of November we are hosting: A Taste Of Kindling. This is an exclusive one night only event with a 7 course surprise tasting menu. It's £55 p/p and the menu will not be revealed until the night. There will be a wine pairing available on the night as well. This is going to be an incredible celebration of seasonal produce and is not to be missed! (Visit for more details)

For those of you wanting something a bit special for your Christmas work event this year, we are here for you. Make your event extra special with a Kindling Experience Christmas Party, we are offering a different experience to the usual and clichéd Christmas Parties. A sophisticated menu constructed around the best of the seasonal produce with a fantastic wine pairing. Booking also guarantees the whole back section of the restaurant for yourself (min 7 and max of 12 people) and no table turnover, meaning customers can enjoy their dinner worry free. They can book their party for Wednesday, Thursday or Sunday evenings (subject to availability). There will be only one sitting at 6pm. (Visit for more details and to see the menus)

As if this wasn’t enough to get you excited for this festive season we are also really excited to announce the return of our Kindling At Home Christmas Boxes. After a sell out run last year we are excited to bring back our Kindling at Home Christmas Boxes in time for the festive season 2021. We are offering a selection of 4 boxes containing everything you need to create the perfect Kindling experience from the comfort of your own kitchen and dining room

Our boxes are inspired by traditional Christmas Day dinner, our finish at home boxes are filled with all the flavours you know and love, but elevated with the magical, smokey and distinctive taste we are known for. (Visit for more details and to view the boxes)
