I'd been to the Chimney House once before but for a Birthday Party and was somewhat underwhelmed, though this was a couple of years ago. However, I've been there twice recently for a business lunch and was very pleased with the staff/service, menu and the...More

The food was excellent and not over priced which is refreshing. I had a burger (no ordinary burger) and chips and the were the best chips I've ever had! The girls serving were so friendly. Would definitely eat here again

We called in for a quick bite before a theatrical performance at a nearby venue, we were able to sit outside...food ordered was tasty and well presented, the beers were well kept and the staff friendly. Worth a visit.

We went on a Sunday purely for the roast. A reliable source had told me it was the best roast dinner in the world (!) and I have to say it didn't disappoint. Great veg, carrot, kale, beetroot. Really nicely cooked potato, good and crisp...More

We've moved away from the area, so it's been a while since this was our local. But I'm happy to report the food and atmosphere are as great as ever and I was delighted that I chose to spend my birthday here with 10 friends.

We had high hopes for the chimney house... unfortunately it was very very disappointing. The reason it gets 2 stars rather than 1, is that the starter was actually really nice. The mains however were over cooked and we both ended up leaving most of...More

The food was overpriced for what it was. We tried some of the random things on the menu, like Reindeer moss and it was pointless, not tasty and it just felt like they were trying too hard. However, the pig head croquettes were delicious. Over...More

Six of us celebrated a friends birthday, not the norm for us to venture to off the beaten track from the centre of Brighton or Hove, but it was well worthwhile. A good vibrant bar area and busy dining section. The menu is not extensive...More

Hey Rosalind, With our Sunday Roasts only the gravy and the Yorkshire Puddings contain gluten. With a little warning when making a reservation the chefs can prepare gluten free substitutes. I hope this helps answer your... More

Located just a short walk from Seven Dials, the Chimney House offers something for everyone from a cup of tea and a slice of cake, pint of Harveys, glass of prosecco, dirty little burger or a relaxed three course meal.

We strive to source our ingredients from within Sussex with fish from Shoreham and Newhaven, fruit and vegetables from local farms and glasshouses as well as meat from Garlic Wood Farm.

We are open all day Tuesday to Sunday and look forward to seeing you even if its just for a jar of chutney.
