Fed up with celebrity chefs drizzling sauces over undercooked pieces of meat? I am!

I regularly dine out and am happy to share my restaurant experiences, and views on food, with you.

The Setting Sun Brighton

The Setting Sun Brighton

1 Windmill Street,
Brighton,
BN2 0GN

0872 148 6119

Eva and I regularly dine in this fine gastro pub, not only because it is a mere two minutes walk from our home, but because the food is excellent.

The Setting Sun is more of a wine bar/bistro rather than "pub" in the strictest sense of the word. It has light wood flooring, large leather sofas, bistro style wooden tables, a conservatory and a patio that affords stunning views of Brighton (if you can find seat there in the summer).

The atmosphere is often lively, yet cosy and intimate (each table has a candle).

The menu, chalked up on a blackboard, changes with the season and currently includes; soup, sausage and mash, fish and chips, burgers, chicken in a cream and mushroom sauce and pumpkin risotto etc.

The staff are friendly and very cheerful, they even manage to put up with me!

The chef is a real find, her food is excellent, and the pub will be lose a real asset if she ever leaves.

All in all an excellent place for a bistro meal, usually (with a bottle of wine) it will not set you back more than £40 for two.

Well worth visiting!
