Critics Review
Go Big, Go to The Grand!
8/10
Sometimes we all have a reason to go big and tonight we are dining at the Grand. This beautiful, regency building is one of Brighton’s more up market venues, adding some class to Brighton’s seafront. Much more than wonderful architecture, fancy suites and sea views, we have decided to take a stroll down the front to find what GB1 – seafood restaurant and bar – has to offer in the steak department. We are not so used to the greeting we get on arrival. The Grand oozes history and importance; this place feels special, and the staff will do their best to make you feel the same.

My friends and I spent a very enjoyable afternoon at the Grand having Afternoon Tea in the recently refurbished bar and conservatory area (which was a birthday gift). The staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Love the refurbishments and the new china (very colonial). Although the Hotel was very busy, the atmosphere was lovely, especially with all the Xmas decorations and cosy bar area - the only thing missing was a roaring fire! Would definitely recommend having the Afternoon Tea, a perfect way to end a day's shopping/sightseeing. Only other thing we would have liked was for it to snow as we were leaving but perhaps that is a big ask ................!!!! Would like to thank the Manager and his very professional staff for making the visit so enjoyable. Will definitely be returning.

Extremely good food and service! The only disappointing thing was that despite the fact I had told them we were celebrating my mother’s 80th birthday, the restaurant did nothing special and did not acknowledge it.

We didn't appreciate being referred to as "spa" by the maître D after we had been seated. We had no option of upgrading our meal if we wanted something from the main menu. Although the food was delicious we did feel rushed, almost as if we weren't welcome amongst other guests.

As usual we had a very good dinner at GB1, the only setback was having to send back a champagne cocktail twice (flat champagne & second a short measure of champagne). Our starters were great and we always find the mains excellent value, we had the market fish selections of bream and Dover sole. GB1 is well worth a visit.

Booked high tea there with friends. Lovely atmosphere and beautiful decor. The scones with clotted cream and jam were heavenly.

It was vey busy when we arrived so we had to wait for our table. We just had to stand and wait. Food was fine, although humous sandwiches seemed strange. Orange polenta cake also a strange choice- very solid and large. Service was patchy and the whole experience underwhelming considering the price.

I booked the mealn’on line’ and wasn’t aware that I had booked a high bar location rather than a table. Which was initially disappointing as it looks and feels rather precarious. I am not a budgie and not keen to perch to eat. However the perches were very stable so it want so bad. Can this ‘choice’ be made more obvious on your website.
