Salt Room

The Salt Room is one of the fastest growing fish restaurants in Brighton, with smart, stylish décor and an extensive selection of locally-sourced fresh fish dishes. Offering both a fine dining experience and Thames-side location, The Salt Room has it all. The result is a menu which offers everything from tender whitebait and fish finger fillets to the very best Sussex crab and steak. And if you fancy something a little stronger to complement the food, why not treat yourself to one of their best-selling cocktails?.

Salt Room is set over two floors, with a street level restaurant and bar offering an informal dining experience, whilst upstairs houses the epicurean Chef's Table experience, Brighton Town Press ( The tastefully decorated restaurants relaxed atmosphere and high-ceilinged loft space oozing with character is a sensory delight.  Salt Room is situated on Library Street which leads onto North Laine in Brighton opposite the library, the venue has been transformed from its former state in which it was a live music venue.

The Salt Room on Trafalgar Street is a well-known landmark in the city. After all, its name was created out of the huge window spans and the giant illuminated bar in the middle of the ground floor. It all looks amazing from the outside but one thing that really makes this restaurant stand out is its menu. There's some really creative food on offer here and even if youre already not a fan of fish, there's enough choice on this menu for it not to put you off.

The Salt Room, located on Brighton's famed Church Street, is one of the best-kept secrets in Brighton! It's a modern British bistro/café-style restaurant but it looks really different to any other places nearby. The dining room is modern and spacious and has a great buzz about it, especially during the weekends when there are usually people sharing cocktails at the bar. If there's one thing you need to know about me, it's that I love my food.

Fish and seafood are my obsession so naturally we had to try The Salt Room when we were in Brighton a few months ago. Established by the same owners as the critically-acclaimed Coal Shed which is another restaurant added to my list of top places to go. The Salt Room welcomes you to a world of flavours from around the globe. Literally! Our aim is to provide good quality pan-asian dishes in a simple and relaxed atmosphere.

West Beach Bar & Kitchen

West Beach Bar & Kitchen is a very relaxed eatery that offers a stunning view of Brighton and its iconic landmarks, such as The West Pier. As I had never been to this area before and it is known for being a bit of a tourist hot spot, I thought ‘why not?!’. I had booked ahead which I highly recommend because this place is small and fills up quite quickly (you can sit outside too).

West Beach Bar & Kitchen is situated at the base of Brightons BAi360 and has been created using Brightons vibrant spirit as inspiration. The menu creates a refreshing twist on traditional seaside favourites such as their famous fish & chips with the Crumbed Catch of the Day and Chips, alongside delicious Seafood Buckets and locally sourced drinks. West Beach Bar amp; Kitchen is an authentic seafood seafood bar amp; grill that embraces the vibrant seaside spirit of Brightons famous beachfront.

Set at the base of Brightons BAi360 and decorated with a variety of floor to ceiling artworks, the restaurant offers a selection of both indoor and outdoor dining options. West Beach Bar & Kitchen is set within the jungle of evergreen trees at the foot of Brightons 360. It is one of the most unusual beach bars with a great suntrap and well worth a visit even if youre not on a night out in Brighton.

The Copper Clam

So, you're in Brighton and you've got a hankering for some seafood. Well, my favourite place to stop is The Copper Clam. This local seafood spot is run with pride the oysters are local, the fish is fresh and everything is super tasty. They also boast a decent cocktail bar (handy on a sunny Brighton afternoon) and live jazz music. what's not to love? It's often very busy here with some of the best sea views in town and a great place to share seafood platters or go the whole hog and get your hands dirty with a main dish.

The Copper Clam is a relative newcomer to Brighton's sea side. A little place that takes you out of the hustle & bustle of the market and into a small eatery that has a real charm to it. Tucked away down a little street, the venue is hard to identify from the exterior, but there's an unmistakable clam on display which gives it away. It had not been open long when we visited, but already had the local feel that Brighton does so well and it was still buzzing with locals as it was mid-afternoon.

There’s hardly a better place to watch the waves on Brighton’s seafront than a bar at The Copper Clam. Their prime location means they have a 360-degree view of the ocean, which makes for spectacular people watching. This spot is known for its live music, so expect a blast from the past whilst enjoying an afternoon cocktail with your lobster roll. With such a fantastic location The Copper Clam could quite easily have been content being the go-to seafood bistro of Brighton.

The Watershed

The Watershed's ambience is casually sophisticated. The relaxed, yet refined interior has been designed and built in collaboration with local artists. The sumptuous décor of the restaurant reflects the subdued colours of the surrounding marina. Downstairs the bar has spectacular views over Dublin Bay through large glass windows opening out on to a decked terrace. The cocktail list has been thoughtfully crafted and is served with locally-made spirits. At night it’s time to catch up with your loved ones and indulge in a few drinks.


Gingerman is a fantastic place to go for lunch and dinner. The restaurant offers a Sunday roast, featuring British lamb and beef! It also serves delicious contemporary English dishes such as their Duck & Foie Gras Burger (reasonably priced at £17) and the perfectly cooked Spiced Rack of Lamb (only £16). However, for the best value, I would recommend booking a set menu (£30) or simply order off the a la carte menu. To start, I ordered the amazing cured fish board which included awesome British fish from Norfolk, while my partner in crime went for the Welsh rarebit rich and cheesy like you would expect.

Gingerman in Norfolk Square is just the kind of high end dining spot that makes London great. Tripadvisor and Zomato give top reviews, but they can confirm for you what I saw as I sat down for dinner at Gingerman – That the service is first rate, both attentive and unobtrusive; fresh ingredients are used to create real food (I began with the tartar of mackerel with crème fraiche and malt vinegar); and good things come to those who wait – a glass of Krug Champagne and my steak tartar were both worth hurrying for.

Gingerman is tucked away on the first floor of Norwich’s Saint Giles hotel, which is a 17th century building. The dark wood and gorgeous brickwork perfectly complement the sophisticated yet cosy atmosphere prevalent throughout the restaurant. Located on the site of the old Norfolk Arms pub, the Gingerman is the result of a collaboration between chef Dan Cox and Arjun Waney. The happy accident resulted in a venue that has quickly become one of London's best.
