Another great evening meal when you don’t fancy cooking in this friendly neighbourhood restaurant. The staff always make you feel really welcome. The food is good, the feel is just right and local art on the walls makes it even better. Well done.

We returned to Busby & Wilds on a more recent trip into Brighton. Once again we pre-booked a table for Sunday lunch and it certainly matched our previous experience. The beef was delicious and the yorkshire puddings are just huge!! Well worth finding out if...More
