Brighton and Hove restaurants and bars named best in UK

First published in News

Brighton and Hove is outperforming the capital when it comes to satisfying hungry stomachs and parched mouths.

Readers of Condé Nest Traveller magazine have voted Brighton and Hove the Best UK city for restaurants and bars – ahead of even the famously gastro London.

The city scored highly in the publisher’s annual travel awards which invite readers to vote for the places they love to visit and stay in.

Brighton and Hove made its way into the world’s top 100 places to visit beating out some luxurious destinations across the globe.

Its entry at number 86, put Brighton and Hove as the top UK city and placed above famous London hotels The Connaught and Dorchester and also spa resorts in Italy and the Maldives.

Councillor Geoffrey Bowden, chair of the city’s economic development and culture committee, said: “This is yet another feather in city's cap.

“It is a great accolade to be recognised by the readers of such a prestigious travel magazine and is a testament to the amazing variety and quality of Brighton and Hove's bar and restaurant offer."

Councillor Brian Fitch, who in his role as mayor was presented with Brighton and Hove’s award, said: “It’s absolutely fantastic to have pushed London into second place and it’s a real achievement for the bars and restaurants in the city; demonstrating their diversity and the excellence of their offer.

“I am delighted for them.

“No-one should underestimate their value to our economy and the place they hold as one the key attractions of our city.”

There has always been good grub in Brighton to suit all budgets.

However, I do not believe there is one single Michelin Star in the whole of the city.

There are a host of excellent restaurants and many great pubs. I have lived here for ten years and have sampled some extremely fine food and have friends and family who love to visit and are green with envy at the choice we have. Equally there are some atrocious "food" serveries and a number of pubs and bars where the landlord's would make Dick Turpin blush. On the whole though a great place to live despite all the doom mongers on here and what choice we have if we can afford to go out.

There are no biker pubs due to impossible parking regulations. Brighton and Hove are the ONLY places in the country motor bikes can't park free nor with a ticket, in a car space.
