Food was excellent, service was friendly, if a little bit disorganised. Had the ham hock and rib-eye steak, my wife had the fish main-all very good, nice bottle of Pinot noir and lovely relaxed surroundings.

Went here last night and was highly disappointed. Greeted by a miserable looking waiter who didn't even walk us to our table just told us to head upstairs. We were given 2 menus for 6 of us. We waited 15 minutes before anyone bothered asking...More

Enjoyed the special menu inside the restaurant and had a lovely evening. Good staff, service at a speed that doesn't make you feel rushed and most importantly really good food! Steak and the mussels are both recommended.

Hello, The restaurant makes no claims to that and if they did I imagine they would advertise it. I suggest you contact Restaurants Brighton for more information. Have a nice day

Nestled amongst Brighton���s famous Lanes, filled with bohemian cafes and boutiques, is The House Restaurant ��� a favourite hang-out for Brighton's foodies. Located only minutes away from the seaside and the Royal Pavilion, The House Restaurant is a cosy establishment spread over two floors in a converted Victorian house decorated with a modern vanilla and chocolate brown colour scheme. The food here is modern British, and specialties include beef Wellington and steak - customers come back again and again for the sirloin and fillet steaks, all tender, cooked to order and served with your choice of chunky chips or new potatoes. The extensive menu has something for everyone including, this being Brighton, a great range of vegetarian choices. Weather permitting (or even if it doesn���t ��� there���s heating!), there���s a lovely outdoor terrace set in a cobbled sheltered square in the south Lanes.
