Excellent value, attentive staff. The cauliflower cheese was the tastiest I have ever eaten.
Excellent staff with friendly and efficient service
Another delicious Sunday lunch with excellent service and perfectly cooked food.
Lighting in main restaurant bit too dim and gloomy - also went off completely for a few seconds three times during our meal. Although not busy, had to ask for some things more than once, eg olives. Great food, well presented.
Staff where very attentive to our needs , knew when to come and asked if we needed anything , food n drinks were amazing . Would like to thank all the staff for making our afternoon tea experience amazing and one we won't forget. Many thanks .
Another brilliant time, excellent service, the food and ambiance is simply exquisite, well done. JB
Over all a very enjoyable evening the food was great and the drink was good as well. Especially the £5 cocktails. The only let down being the service which we felt was a little slow and a few items where missed of our order.
Totally loved my evening here will be back soon
Great food and amazing service. Very friendly and attentive, and what a view of the sea.
It's quite expensive and the food is very nice but not out-of-this-world. The service is excellent though, hitting the perfect balance between formal and relaxed, and the setting is wonderful. So it is well worth it as an experience.
I arranged to meet a friend who I worked with in social services back in the seventies. We meet up regularly annually and this year I thought I would book the Grand. On alighting from my taxi I was met by a lovely gentleman who greeted me and the doors were opened by him which was very much appreciated as I have slowed down a bit recently. My friend and I sat in the window seat with a fantastic view of the seafront and the West Pier which unbelievably looked quite beautiful. A lovely gentleman gave us the menu and then followed a fantastic tea exactly as promised on the website. The friendly waitress was attentive and helpful and my friend and I had a most enjoyable afternoon. I was offered a delightful box to take home some pastries which was much appreciated. Upon leaving the doorman was very attentive which is much appreciated. The decor of the Victoria terrace was amazing and the china was beautiful together with the seating. I could not help thinking about my late mother's friend Anne Aherne who was head housekeeper at the old Bedford Hotel Brighton in the fifties - she would loved to have been here and been most impressed. A wonderful afternoon and a great hotel.
We love the Grand for a drink on a Friday night with music but the afternoon tea was a disappointment. The service was slow, sandwiches had far too much butter (thought it was a slice of cheese), tiny scones and cold and weak coffee! On a positive note, the atmosphere is very relaxed and we will be back but not for afternoon tea!
Food and staff were lovely, had a really nice cocktail.
Had a wonderful afternoon tea!
Wonderful atmosphere with great views of the seafront. Service was excellent and the Brighton Gin (and accompaniments) were especially fun.
The food and service were really good once we were seated. The room although gorgeous was a little on the chilly side. Even my friend who is never cold commented on it. When we arrived we were told that they were running a "smidge" late. We had to wait 35 minutes sitting in the foyer - which I think was a bit longer than a smidge! So that did take a bit of the shine off the visit - which was a shame. A complimentary drink and an apology might have helped...This is why I can't give full stars for the service.
High quality local seafood dishes with a beautiful Kent white wine. Very good, friendly service as well.
Having been informed a 3:30pm booking would be fine on a Sunday, on arrival the kitchen had run out of the beef option, the waitress came back with an incorrect wine we ordered and we were served a small sharing vegetable plate options for five guests. Very disappointing indeed.
Lovely surroundings. Great service. Superb fish. A little expensive - but fish is expensive! Great improvement on previous restaurant. Superb alternative to another local fish specialist we used to visit regularly until they seemed to get too popular for their own good and introduced rules! Very relaxed - but smart.
Very good service. A beautiful hotel. Amazing sandwiches and lovely cake selection!
We had booked an afternoon Tea, we was waited on by a smiley smart dressed lady called Maria, we was made to feel comfortable and special, Maria heard me says we are here for my girlfriend birthday and she brought out a special treat from your chef, saying “Happy Birthday” I will definitely be visiting again to try your seafood spread
Absolutely outstanding service, amazing food, and all of this in a beautiful setting.
Exceptional quality food and friendly efficient service.
We enjoyed our Afternoon Tea, the food was fabulous - and they catered for our 2 pescatarians without any hesitation. We were a larger party of 8 however everything came out in a timely manner and the wait staff were attentive.
