It's a confident move to set yourself up as almost exclusively serving shellfish and craft beer, but it would seem BRAVO voters, like Fortune, favour the bold. This year you voted in waves for The Urchin, and why not? For flavours that hit each other like titans you can't get much better than the fruits of the sea and fine amber brew.

With low beamed rooms, large beer garden and open fires the Shepherd & Dog always frames the surrounding Sussex countryside as beautifully as the menu frames local produce. A great ale pub with a calendar of well received events the Shepherd & Dog earned your respect by a country mile.

Either the determination of the masses was high or their allure was great, either way you look at it Starfish and Coffee had to do battle with some pretty formidable hills to win your rewards. Step aside Muesli Mountain, the Brunch Beacon is here.

With a fine dusting of shops throughout Brighton & Hove, Flour Pot Bakery is well established as the place to pick up a farmhouse bloomer or sourdough. But their fantastic selection of fresh cakes, pastries and beverages also made them destination number one for tea and cake.

The Japanese delicacy meets Latin fever in an explosion of taste, colour and character. You decided Brighton's first introduction to Latin American-Japanese fusion sushi was big on everything except price.

Winner for a second year running, Small Batch Coffee is a success story that shows no signs of slowing. Offering a distinct style and still roasting in small fresh batches, their success hasn't got in the way of their original ethos.

Fun filled, vegan and vibrant, words that are equally true for Happy Maki's burrito sized sushi as they are for their instagram account. You loved the bright colours and festival vibe from this fantastically ethical and delicious vegan sushi bar.

Apparently the name says it all. Laughing Dog Café at the Marina is half art gallery, half cafe and a whole lot a doggy love.
