A new restaurant has opened as building works on a city landmark are finally complete.

Redroaster in New Road has opened after months of building works saw the eastern side of Brighton Dome covered in scaffolding.

The new restaurant is Redroaster’s third branch in the city following the success of its flagship in St James’s Street, which was named the world’s most outstanding speciality coffee house in 2018.

The branch features a covered and heated private terrace for up to 50 people overlooking the Royal Pavilion Gardens, covered al-fresco dining for over 100 people on New Road, as well as a “beautiful” restaurant in the Brighton Dome itself. 

The restaurant serves local food all day, as well as wines and cocktails.

It opens at 9am everyday and serves brunch, lunch and dinner through until 10.30pm.


"We are really excited to partner with the Dome and bring our new Redroaster to a different part of the City," said Mike Palmer, owner of Redroaster who has worked on the opening for almost two years.

“We hope everyone will enjoy it, it’s the ideal place to meet friends and family at any time of day with plenty of room and the most incredible terrace to enjoy the view over the Royal Pavilion Gardens."

Redroaster was the only certified organic coffee roastery south of London when it launched in Brighton 23 years ago.

The roastery is near Sussex Square in Kemp Town and directly imports beans from across the world for cafes and offices across the city and country.

Redroasters' café on the beach, called Lucky Beach, is also award-winning, having been recognised as the country’s number one sustainable restaurant.

Sustainability is at the heart of the brand, says Redroaster, and “every aspect” of the café carefully considers it, from eco-friendly packaging, furniture made from recycled water bottles and wood, recycled building materials, Sussex organic food and drinks and a fleet of electric delivery bikes.

The company also says it takes pride in sharing profits with its farmers families in Rwanda to build infrastructure such as school and health facilities.

It is also the city’s largest employer of learning disabled young adults.
