7 Romantic Restaurants on Brighton Beach, UK
The following list will provide you with 7 of the most beautiful locations on Brighton Beach where you can have a romantic lunch or dinner. Without having to miss the opportunity of gazing at the beautiful sunset over Brighton beach.
Riddle and Finns
This restaurant is perhaps one of the most picturesque venues overlooking Brighton Beach. The circular architecture of the building allows for 360 degrees of window views overlooking both inland, but more importantly, a 180-degree view of Sun, sea, beach and promenade.
They are particularly famous for their champagne and fresh oysters and exquisite seafood selection that will satisfy your palate. The restaurant operates on a strictly walk-in policy, so if you plan a date there, be prepared to be asked to come back in 20 or 40 minutes.
But, being asked to come but works well here, as it gives you time for a quick drink in one-off Brighton’s many beachfront bars before returning to your available table at Riddle and Finns Champagne and Oyster bar.
The Copper Clam
The newly refurbished Copper Clam restaurant offers some of the best indoors and all year round outdoor seating at Brighton beach. The Copper Calm also has one of the finest seafood selections. Their lobsters are one of their best-sold dishes, and all locally sourced.
Located under the new Arches on Brighton Beach, the Murmur is a restaurant with a stunning seafront view. The food is also of extraordinary quality. Murmur was opened by chef Michael Bremner, who has received many accolades for his dishes and restaurants.
Eating at this restaurant is a fantastic way of trying some of the more exciting local seafood dishes offered currently in Brighton. The location is also exquisite, and if you choose to have a date in this restaurant. Make sure you book just before the sun goes down, so you can enjoy the starling’s murmuration at sunset while you eat.
If you were wondering, Yes, It was from this murmuration the starlings make every night at sunset that this restaurant named itself after. This site is one of the most magical in Brighton, and it is sure to only add to the romance of your evening.
The Lazy Fin restaurant is located within one of the larger arches along the seafront of Brighton beach.
Seated here is provided outdoors and in. The interior is simple, classical, with a gentle Mediterranean edge and a bit of California thrown. Less they have moved the paddleboard from the front now.
The menu is exciting; in fact, all their menus are. Their breakfast menu has a fun seaside twist, like with the Crab and Avacado Benedict. Or the Lazy Fin Breakfast (please note: no fins are used to make this delicious traditional English breakfast by the sea.)
The Lunch and Dinner menu at the Lazy Fin Restaurant also offers some seafood options. However, it isn’t shy to offering some playful meat dishes too. Like the Pulled Pork Crispy Tacos or Grilled Sirloin steak, roasted peppers served in bread, with a side order of Vegetable crisps and homemade pickles.
So, If you are looking for a quirky venue with a funky menu and an intimate vibe. The Lazy Fin will provide this all for you, as well as enough intimacy for a very romantic night and enjoyable meal.
Due South is another attractive option for those seeking a romantic date location by the beach but on the higher end of delicate cuisine. The food is carefully sourced, with the seafood coming from Newhaven, just 9 miles east of the restaurant.
The vegetables come from Shrub, a wholesale grocer that only serves the freshest British produce to restaurants in Sussex and London. Even the Beef and lamb is locally farmed only 25 miles away in Stopham, West Sussex, at the Riverside Wagyu farm, which has been a family-run farm for nearly 60 years, and where
“In 2010, we began with a Wagyu bull to cross with Angus cows to produce the finest meat possible in our environment.”Head Farmer at Riverside Wagyu
You don’t come across that too often. The food at Due South showcase Michelin star chefs, Mark Wadworth’s creativity and ability to fuze his inspiration of international cuisine with locally sourced, ethical produce.
For those wanting to try some adventurous new tastes, Due South will be the perfect restaurant for a romantic date that will keep you salivating with delight.
Brighton Beach Club
The Brighton Beach Club is a beautiful two-floor fresh-styled beachfront venue known for its location, famously right on the beachfront next to that i360 observation tower. If you are looking for the perfect venue for a more casual date with large open windows that span 270 degrees, then the Brighton Beach Club is the venue for you.
Their menu offers good honest dishes like Smoked Mac and Cheese, Longhorn Beef pie, to Grilled Beef Cheeseburgers with Chips.
But this delicious, honest food also comes with reasonable, fair prices. Making the Brighton Beach Club one of the best bangs for your bucks venues along Brighton beach.
The Brighton Beach Clubs drinks menu may be slightly on the high end. However, it is an extensive menu offering soft, hot drinks and wines, draught beers and ciders, low and non-alcoholic beverages, wines, cocktails, and craft beers.
The extra pennies spent on the drinks are quickly forgotten, though, once sunset draws near. The seafront sky starts to tune reddy gold as the twilight hour of sunset starts, and the starlings take flight and start their murmuration dance.
If you are not exclusively looking for a dinner date and prefer something more casual. I highly recommend the Brighton Beach Club, and you will be pleasantly surprised and unexpectedly wowed and whoowed
