We stopped by for a light dinner and a couple of drinks during our two-night stay in Brighton and we stepped into a great atmosphere with a service to match. The only disappointment was that the specialty menu of gin cocktails was not available as the ingredients - with the exception of gin - were not on hand. I settled... More

Popped into the Neighbourhood Bar for something to eat and drink on a weekday night. Wished I hadn't and spent my money elsewhere as it would have gone further. Sat down and looked at the menu and noted some tasty burgers to try. To my shock, the menu was priced at £10 per burger.....without chips! WOW! This is Kemp Town,... More

Popped in here because it was just round the corner from the B&B I was staying in with my partner. It's a pretty cool little place. Ordered the Halloumi and red pepper burger and the Salmon and Sriracha burger - the food was amazing - really tasty. Would definitely go back! The only thing to be aware of is currently... More

Theres no other place like Neighbourhood in Brighton, it has a massive roofed heated garden! Everyone usually comes on here to make a fuss but I just wanted to say that I'll be going here for 'New Years Eve 2017 Brighton'! Really is a feast for the eyes, ears and mouth! Can't go wrong! One of Brightons best kept secrets... More

Stoped here for my birthday tea with friends. Absolutely lovely food, freshly cooked, found some dishes could have been larger but everything was excellent.

It can be a little hit and miss with Neighbourhood, both in terms of food and service. On the whole, they have a good Thing going. Maybe I'm throwing back to the days of the grumpy foul mouthed chef who could be heard cursing throughout the bar and garden, or perhaps parts of an order not being received. Regardless, this...

Went for breakfast on a Sunday, had a bit of a wait as the young girl was on her own due to a member of staff not turning up, so taking orders, drinks etc alone, also a large table had just ordered, with a small kitchen and I think one Chef working. I thought that the breakfast would arrive rushed... More

Just wanted to say thank you to Ben and the team at Neighbourhood Bar for providing an exceptionally warm welcome to all the guests for my wife's surprise birthday. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff at Neighbourhood, who made a summer's day party go off with a bang in the glorious 'Ibiza villa' styled garden. Food was great... More

Stopped in for a burger and a brew, wife had nice glass of wine and appetizer. Service was a touch slow, but our waitress was most pleasant and gave us some suggestions for places to visit and see during our stay in Brighton.
