About GB1 Seafood and Oyster Bar Restaurant
GB1’s philosophy is quality and simplicity, offering a fantastic choice of the finest and freshly caught seafood from Brighton’s shores along with classic English cuisine, with contemporary touches, constantly updated by Executive Chef, Alan White’s brigade of passionate and inventive chefs. 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.
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.
Fantastic afternoon tea. Lovely food, great service and really good value for money.
We were having a birthday afternoon tea for my daughter and were accompaniedbu her elderly grandmother. We were looked after perfectly and enjoyed a meomarable afternoon.
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.
We had a wonderful birthday lunch, thank you to all the lovely staff who made it so special
A lovely afternoon tea, in relaxed and comfortable surroundings with very attentive service. Very enjoyable.
Exceptional service from a terrific restaurant! Excellent as always from Alan and the GB1 team.
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.
Great food, service and setting.
Excellent food and even better service.
Lovely food , excellent service. Would eat there again when next in Brighton.
Booked high tea there with friends. Lovely atmosphere and beautiful decor. The scones with clotted cream and jam were heavenly.
Delightful afternoon and would definitely recommend.
It was a lovely experience to enjoy an afternoon tea in such a lovely decor.
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.
Attentive, friendly staff. Music in bar was distracting. Food good.
Great staff. Super friendly and courteous.
Amazing selection of perfectly cooked and presented afternoon tea. Lovely tableware, in tune with the sumptuous theme of The Grand. Very attentive, helpful staff. Thanks for a great experience.
Will definitely be returning!
everyone helpful and friendly
We visited for my Mother's Birthday Treat and had the Grand Victorian Afternoon Tea. The staff were exceptional – very willing to help and approachable – always smiling. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
We enjoyed two excellent dinners and two good breakfasts.
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.
