Gabriella’s Guide to Eating Out in Brighton

Brighton is a place of so many cultures and also, so many restaurants. If you’re in the mood for Japanese or Thai you can always find somewhere to eat. Having grown up in Brighton, you see a lot of your favourites come and go so I wanted to create a list of the Top 50 Places to Eat in Brighton. A lot of people come to Brighton for the day from the surrounding areas, so having a list of where you can go and get a specific type of food might be useful! I haven’t eaten at all of these places personally, I’ve asked for recommendations from family and friends as well as on Twitter and Instagram. When I come back from America, I’m going to try and eat out a lot more so hoping to tick a few more off my list. 

I managed to include quite a few different types of food without really even trying, so I hope you enjoy the list below. If you do take one of the recommendations and go eat there, then let me know in the comments!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, if you ever come to Brighton let me know because I’d love to hear where you end up! Follow me on Instagram and Twitter for more daily posts whilst I’m away at Camp. If you could share this post it would be amazing as I’m not on social media as much at the moment whilst in America.
