‘Brighton on your plate’ is the watch-word at Isaac Bartlett-Copeland’s tiny North Laine operation – to which you could add ‘Sussex in your glass’. But it’s the “all-round high quality” of the cooking and preparation as much as the hyper-localist enthusiasm of the young team that wins consistently high ratings for the venue.

Localism is taken to new extremes at Isaac Bartlett-Copeland’s tiny North Laine “gem,” where “imaginative cooking and interesting presentation” win high ratings for a “young and enthusiastic staff” (Isaac and his team are all in their early-mid 20s) “who work hard to make an evening here a special experience”. Not only is the “great food sourced from local producers” – you’d be hard-pressed to find a wine from beyond the Sussex borders on the all-British drinks list.

“A young team who know their stuff serve locally sourced ingredients with the utmost care, in new and exciting combinations, supported by an all British wine list” at Isaac Bartlett-Copeland’s Scandi-esque North Laine “gem”. “Well worth a train rip to the coast – if this place was in London, it would be utterly mobbed!”

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"Well-meaning front of house told us everything, and I mean absolutely everything, about every dish. Sometimes you just want to eat! Food was good but not remarkable."
