One of England’s oldest restaurants: the Leigh-Jones family’s seafood period-piece, in the Lanes – run by the clan since 1945, but established in the 1890s – has a “huge number of things to recommend”, not least its “lovely fresh local oysters and mussels” and an outside terrace for sunny days.
“This revered traditional fish restaurant” – a Lanes fixture in the Leigh-Jones family since 1945 (but actually established in the 1890s) wins high praise for its “gorgeous seafood” and “continued high standards”. “Not as formal as it looks, and kids are well looked after” – “excellent value half lobster on the children’s menu is great for promoting more adventurous eating”.
“Warm welcome, exceptional oysters from Falmouth, entertaining server keeping up parallel conversations with two regulars” – all par for the course at this “most convivial” Lanes veteran (est. 1890s). It has long been traditional reviewers’ tip as the “best seafood in Brighton, particularly if you’re sticking to classic dishes”.
A “very long-established seafood restaurant” (est. 1890s), in the Lanes, where “the seafood is simply amazing”, and service is “outstanding” too. While it has “had its ups and downs”, and the interior “looks a bit 1980s” (notwithstanding the fin-de-siècle murals), it currently serves some of the “best seafood in Brighton”.
