Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
A “small” venue, with quite a local following, that’s “well located on Brighton beach yet close to the town” and its elder Lanes sibling. “If you can get a window seat it’s the perfect spot to watch the sun set” over “tip-top seafood”, a “big range of catch of the day” or a “great value” lunch.
“A lovely spot (if difficult to find) under the arches on Brighton Beach” – “you eat upstairs, and kitchen and reception are below”. The younger sibling to a spot on The Lanes, it’s become one of the city’s most popular destinations, not just on account of the super location, but also the “smiley and efficient” service, and most particularly its “enticing” range of “lip-smacking” fish and seafood.
An “excellent addition for Riddle & Finns on the seafront”; in a “lovely spot under the arches, right by the beach” (that some still remember as Due South, RIP), this new sibling to The Lanes original offers a “great range of oysters” plus “seafood cooked to perfection” and “run to table from kitchen”; upstairs tables are preferred.
The Beach restaurant can be found overlooking the picturesque promenade of Brighton. Housed in the famous seafront arches you can enjoy your meal on the alfresco terrace or with views of the beach from the dining room. The restaurant is spread across the first floor and the terrace, the decor is relaxed and elegant allowing for the perfect setting for special meal both day and night. At The Beach we take reservations and we have a private dining room available for functions and special events.
12pm - 10pm every day

Riddle & Finns On The Beach Restaurant Diner Reviews
"On a break for 4 nights in Brighton, ate here and liked it so much that we returned two days later. A big selection of seafood, generous portions, good service. Although not all the cooking is quite grade 5, I'd give them that rating for the huge variety of ways the dishes are available. All the standard European ways, but also sashimi (as good, and more generous portion, than Japanese restaurants we've eaten at), middle-Eastern monkfish 'osso bucco', bouillabaisse (maybe not 1005 authentic Nicoise, but really good), etc. Prices good for what you get."
