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.
The seafood was nice but would have liked some large prawns instead of the pickled seafood broth, didn’t like that
Had the full afternoon tea - though the quality of each item of food was absolutely delicious, we waited over 40 minutes to be served which, for a room with 10 tables, was very long and disappointing. Cosy and quiet atmosphere
A wonderful afternoon tea. Enjoyed it hugely. Forget the price, enjoy the moment.
Staff friendly and helpful.
Absolutely beautiful restaurant, the conservatory area in particular. We had afternoon tea which was lovely. Finger sandwiches, tea and so much cake!
Very welcoming and helpful by all the staff
Lovelty food, great value for money.
We had a reservation for 1630 but only shown to our table at 1700. It also took another 15-20 minutes to order. The service was excellent after but something has to be done to avoid people waiting for such a long time when a reservation has been made
We have had afternoon tea here several times in the past but in this instance our experience was slightly disappointing. The service was slower than usual and we waited more than half an hour for initial drinks to be served. The staff were very good but perhaps overstretched on this occasion. Once it arrived the food was good with the exception of the clotted cream which accompanied the scones. This was solid and impossible to spread.
The problems we had have since been addressed and we will return during our next visit. This review is for dinner only, lunch and breakfast were great .
We stayed for four nights while the menu was varied it was it certainly did not offer the variety that the room service menu displayed a wider availability of choice would certainly improve the the customers opportunity to experience excellent cooking of different fish as we know some fish have different textures and require different ways of cooking and preparing giving that experience would undoubtedly enhance the customer experience even so what was available was certainly of a very high standard well Done
Environment was a little tired ( one velvet chair at our table had a rip on it, other chairs on our table and other tables had grubby stains, food crumbs and marks on them) Service was a little gruff and lacking warmth. For example not one member of staff asked us if everything was ok or thanked us for coming?
We were catered for very well with one member of the party having coeliac disease. The staff were all aware of this and all the food was separate. The food was lovely and the atmosphere was pleasant. Lovely afternoon
Probably the most disappointing and underwhelming experience, we were completely forgotten about re seating , our table was given to another party meaning we stood in the bar , no seats, for nearly 40 minutes, our champagne was forgotten, we asked 3 times, neither our sandwiches nor cakes were explained, our waitress was at best curt at worst surly, every interaction was a struggle. Worse the portions of the sandwiches were derisory, neither jam nor cream was sufficient for the number of portions and our request for more wasn’t met. I had been looking forward to treating my nieces to what should have been a perfect afternoon, it so very wasn’t.
We had a fabulous time, the food was delicious and the service was excellent. I would highly recommend GB1 for Sunday lunch.
The bread on the sandwiches was a bit dry and stale. Also I thought we would be in the terrace area overlooking the sea so the location of our table was a little disappointing. Otherwise it was a nice experience with excellent and friendly service and delicious scones and cakes. I like that you can have the remainder packed up to take away
I was somewhat surprised there were no table clothes. Very impressed when our soufflé desert collapsed we were offered another one free of charge & also complementary tea/coffee. Thank you. The staff were extremely helpful, informative & polite.
A wonderful venue for that special occasion or for a much deserved treat.
As a regular visitor I can highly recommend the Sunday lunch. The best I’ve found so far outside of my own 4 walls. Amazing , attentive staff always make it a little extra.... The bar drinks are steep and can quickly turn into an expensive lunch but still to be highly recommended
All lovely, and we were beautifully looked after on Mother's Day, especially as some of the party were late due to traffic. Thank you.
Alas the most disappointing aspect of a weekend in Brighton with my parents. Whilst initially impressed with the pro-activeness of a member of your team offering the option to arrive at 10.30 as the table was required at noon to lay for afternoon tea, upon arrival whilst tea and coffee orders were taken and delivered promptly, it took over 1 hour for the breakfast to arrive The toast was rock hard (i.e could have been standing for that hour). It also felt as though we were in the way in that all around us tables were being laid for afternoon tea. A VERY DISAPPOINTING experience.
Lovely decor and atmosphere. Delicious scones. Lovely afternoon. Would recommend.
Thank you for a very enjoyable experience, it was a real treat and your staff were lovely, as was the food.
It was lovely and the service was very good, but we weren't in the Seafood and Oyster bar; we had afternoon tea next to the terrace.
Fantastic Mother's Day Celebration! Our waitress who served us was absolute star. Thank you!
