Very disappointing. Lovely starter, well presented BUT insulting in the tiny size. Roast pork main was a disaster, inedible burnt base, tasteless middle and "crackling" with the consistency of chewy toffee. Lousy wine list meaning we coudn't even drown our sorrows! Tap water was ok though as was the service. from waiting staff.

On a recent visit to Brighton we had a lovely dinner at the Coach House. We have been before and had an amazing dinner then but I have to say, although it was nice, this time round we didn't leave feeling wowed. It was just good. However, we should say the service was great, atmosphere is wonderful - really cosy... More

We had our wedding here and it was simply perfect! Sian, the wedding manager is incredible and knows her stuff, she helped us to create our ideal wedding day and made it so much fun. The day ran smoothly thanks to her and her team and the staff worked tirelessly all day to make everything special. They are a great... More

We celebrated our daughter's wedding here 2 weeks ago. Situated in the middle of Brighton the venue is a short walk away from the Town Hall where the ceremony took place. While accommodating 100 guests the Coach House has a feeling of intimacy. The venue was beautifully decorated and the staff worked tirelessly all evening to ensure our event was... More

We had our wedding at the Coach House towards the end of October and we couldn't fault it; the staff, the food, the setting and the planning process was all amazing. All of our friends and family commented on how good the food was (we had rolling canapés) and the day was perfect. We had a few meetings with Sian... More

Came here on my 2 year anniversary with my boyfriend and it didn't disappoint, I had the beef and it was the best roast dinner I've ever had! Will definitely return next year:)

We stumbled upon this restaurant after an afternoon stroll round Brighton and it looked a really nice and full of character and we decided to book dinner in the evening. Had a gorgeous evening, the atmosphere, staff and food was just truly amazing and we thoroughly recommend The Coach House to anyone visiting or living in Brighton. It was especially... More

I've been to this restaurant several times and it was lovely. However, some friends and I visited it recently mid week evening, and found the service to have really deteriorated. As we sat down another diner warned us that the waiter had already said he hoped no one else would come in as he 'wanted a quiet night'. Despite this... More

Decided to try somewhere different for Sunday lunch, we hadn't a table booked but was very welcomed by the staff and short notice. Very nice roast indeed. Looking forward to coming back one evening as the rest of the menu looks to good to miss!

I planned to go to Coach House restaurant for my birthday with my family, including my disabled mother. I saw it was listed in the ‘wheelchair accessible’ category on TripAdvisor. I telephoned in advance to double check this was the case. They confirmed it was fully wheelchair accessible and I told them my mother uses an electric wheelchair. They said,... More

CoachBrighton, General Manager at Coach House, responded to this review

We are all very disappointed to read this review left on trip advisor a few days ago by a customer that visited the Coach House several weeks ago. The Coach House has been established for many years, and the current staff have continued the tradition of always being open, friendly, helpful and never discriminatory to anyone that comes to the...
