Only popped in for a light bite with a friend, now kind of wish we hadn't. The food was terrible, especially the Mediterranean salad which consisted of far too many mixed leaves for the plate to cope with, sliced cucumber, sliced tomato, feta and olives that tasted of lemon (and weren't fresh). I cannot see any Mediterranean influence, it was... More

Ideal location, family and pet friendly.. generally great vibe. Service was friendly, but decidedly average. Ordering a pint at the bar took long due to the queue and the place was not even particularly busy. The food was below average pub food, at above average price. Don't think about ordering coffee, because it takes ages to make, costs the same... More

The View serves the lowest quality pub food in dingy surroundings. The service is poor. The warm white wine was undrinkable. The outdoor area was littered with rubbish, fag ends and uncleared plates. Inside was cold and smelled of reused cooking oil.

Was here for a pre-booked business lunch in January. The restaurant was cold enough that most of kept our coats on throughout the meal. I assume it would have been heated in the evening. Our waitress was friendly and very helpful but the kitchen seemed to be giving her problems - the mezze we ordered to start for 6 people... More

Went for lunch here with friends and have to say I was pretty disappointed. It was quite cold inside to the point we kept our coats on and the atmosphere was quite chaotic and a little run down. Food was pretty nice though the salad was elderly and it certainly wasn't worth the high price tag. Food was also luke... More

The food was so overcooked, dry, obviously frozen and reheated which is disgusting considering how much this place charges. Tasteless cheap food. Soft drink comes in small glasses filled to the brim with ice. Very confused menu, Persian..Sunday lunch..seafood..fish and chips. Focus on one thing and do it well! Wont be returning here or recommending it.

I organised my running club's annual Christmas party and booked this venue for Saturday 17th December 2016. I wanted a venue that could cater for around 60 - 80 people and looked at many venues in Brighton & Hove. Many were hotels that could not give exclusivity for this number as venues were either too small or too large. I... More

Me & my partner has a long walk along the seafront after our recent relocation to Brighton. We came across this place & thought it would be a good place for a tea. We sat down & a friendly member of staff asked us if we'd like drinks, so we started to order and a 'boss' came over to her... More
