About Chard

For Dinner we serve a Five or Seven course tasting menu, served Tuesday to Saturday evenings from 6pm. Our menu reflects Benny’s innovative cooking style with touches of nostalgia, coupled with a wholly personal dining experience in unique and stunning surroundings.

With the dinner menu changing regularly, we will continue to champion the very best seasonal ingredients, now with the option to pair with an accompanying wine flight, refreshed to complement every menu change.

The wine list has been devised exclusively for us by the wonderful Cassie and Henry of Butlers Wine Cellar and encompasses both English and international selections with a focus on the extraordinary! Whether you wish to experience the full flight or select something singular from our wine list, there will be something delicious for all.

For lunch, served Fridays and Saturdays from midday to 3pm, where there may not be the time to enjoy a tasting menu, we instead offer an a la carte menu revisiting some of the dinner highlights of the past year.

Cuisine: British, Fine Dining, Locally Sourced, Romantic, Set Menu, Tasting Menu, Vegetarian Friendly

A truly wonderful dining experience and quite possibly the best we have ever encountered in Brighton. Mae and Ciaran were just the most wonderful hosts and we will definitely be back.

Been for dinner and lunch now. Just lovely all round. Exceptional food and the nicest service. Definitely somewhere to take visiting friends and show them one of Brighton’s hidden gems (although not so hidden, book well in advance). Beautiful creative food at reasonable prices.

We love this restaurant, everything about it is excellent. The staff, venue, ambience and most of all food is something you won't find in Brighton & Hove. We can't wait for our next visit.

A great evening and lovely service. Booking on line was a bit glitchy but, other than that, an extremely memorable experience

We have been a number of times since Chard opened and cannot fault it. The service is outstanding, incredibly welcoming and professional. Great playlists. And the food.....utterly beautiful in every respect - always a total delight to visit. Great new wine pairings too. Thank you.

We found the service & surroundings at Chard to be really warm, friendly and personal. The food was delicious and beautifully presented - some really original/unusual courses which had us all discussing the flavours & made for a unique meal. We were still talking about them the next day! I’d highly recommend - we’ll be back!
