The striking Lobster Burger is a must try at GB1 as is the Fruits De Mer and an Oyster or two. The seasonally changing menu also boasts meats from the grill and classic Sussex favourites along with vegetarian dishes too.
Impressive unobtrusive, yet attentive, service. Lovely setting & great value for money. Will definitely be returning!
Good choice of menu, food delicious and cooked perfectly. The wine was very good. I had requested a table in the window which we didn't get but we were happy enough with where we were seated. The service was excellent.
The scones were dry and hard to cut. We gave our waitress a £55 tip instead of the 10% discretionary service charge and she didn’t even say thank you. Disappointed
very much enjoyed afternoon tea. the food was delicious with professional service
A very good selection of seafood. The lemon sole was delightful. The sea bream melted in the mouth. The 'peanut' dessert was amazing! Service was very good, staff were friendly, attentive and polite.Nothing was too much trouble.
Nice area, central and with wonderful view. The diner in the seafood restaurant was very good. Wellness was fantastic.
absolutely fantastic food and service, definitely five star. little touches like putting my slipping jacket back on my chair. we mentioned only once in passing that it was my father's birthday, and the smiling maitre d' (i think) brought him a lovely free desert with happy birthday written in chocolate. the only downside was the terrible acoustics - the room was very loud, not helped by the quite loud music. also it was a shame the tables didn't have tablecloths.
It was just a pleasant day as food was well nice & service was 10 out of 10 & such a good atmosphere will definitely be booking again soon.
We came for brunch on Fathers Day and we were pleased to be seated in the conservatory area with a sea view rather than in the main dining area. However, we felt totally rushed (we were advised that for a 1030 table booking that the buffet shut at 11) and then when we were asked for our drink order, my son asked for water but was brought a 'mocha'. Ok, so that was perhaps a hearing issue, but then when I said he would like water I was told he would have to get it himself from the buffet as only hot drinks could be ordered from the waiting staff (despite the fact that my daughter had ordered and received an iced coffee.) There were 3 attempts in about 15 mins to deliver us our bill when we were clearly still eating and then I saw that service was automatically added to our bill (and this was for a buffet service???!) which I asked to be removed. The food was not great and all in all what set out to be a special occasion was v ordinary and hugely disappointing
We would all rather have had cake than the chocolate thing. Whatever happened to the TRADIONAL afternoon tea? Otherwise it was very nice.
My name is Sharon not Karen. I was told this would be changed. It hasn’t been. Very slow service from ordering to receiving the food. We would have stayed for coffee but we were freezing and had run out of time. There is a hole in your roof which the wind was howling through. We sat in our coats and the waitress said she would adjust the heating... she didn’t. A 50th anniversary meal that will be remembered for all the wrong reasons.
Worth it for a special event
There are far better places to stay in Brighton! They are utilisng their name, but the service was really not great. The Hilton is by far nicer and a more pleasant experience in terms of customer service!
The service was excellent, we were made to feel really welcome. Thankyou.
Great food and service
This booking was for my mum's 90th birthday celebration. We did arrive early but out tables were not ready until nearly 4.30pm. The service and staff excellent but I did not really enjoy the tea.
Lovely room and afternoon tea. Only negative would be we were not offered more tea and had to ask for it
perfect evening, great ambience, great service and would definitely return. Wish we'd stayed there now instead too to experience the whole hotel.
It was great!
Great venue and food.
Only disappointed we were turned away at 9.50 on Sunday after coming back from a concert, and wanting supper. Despite a very full hotel you still closed the restaurant! We were not alone, bar also very full, eventually after waiting for seats we were served with drinks and very tiny snacks! Not good service 😒
The staff were knowledgeable and very good explaining the ingredients and what would be suitable as I am pregnant.
We had an awesome waitress during our time here for Afternoon Tea! Great venue, awesome service, great food! The pastries were absolutely delicious
Tea/coffee were served first, but the food came too late and they all got too cold to drink. I talk to the waiter and he was happy to replace the tea/coffee. The coffee was not served in a coffee pot as expected at an afternoon tea and it was far too bitter to drink - I’m a real coffee lover, so I know about coffee. Overall food quality was average and it’s much less than I expected to be served at Grand hotel.
