New – Burnt Orange Brighton

Opening in June 2021, Burnt Orange Brighton is the newest venture from acclaimed restaurateur Razak Helalat. Razak has already given Brighton two of its most popular venues, The Salt Room and The Coal Shed. Burnt Orange is then an eagerly awaited newcomer on the city’s food and drink scene.

Architect's impression of Burnt Orange Brighton


Taking over the former Coach House Restaurant on Middle Street in The Lanes, the beautiful 16th century coach house has many of its original features still in place, which will be mixed tastefully with modern and inviting interior design. Burnt Orange offers 54 covers with an additional gorgeous cobblestone terrace for drinking and alfresco dining.

What to expect.

Burnt Orange Brighton describes itself as being a “grown-up, late night hang-out for Brighton residents”. Most locals will be familiar with the excellent food and cocktails from this new venue’s big sisters and the same high standard can be expected here – but with a more informal vibe, including a playlist curated by DJ Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim).

A sneak peek at the menu has got our taste buds all fired up with grazing and sharing delights such as crab and samphire fritters with brown crab tahini and nigella salt. Additionally, Burnt Orange will serve larger plates cooked over open flame such as shawarma pork belly with date molasses and pickled fennel salad or charcoal roasted octopus with harissa butter and pine nuts.

Like the food, the cocktails have a tantalizing familiar Salt Room/ Coal Shed feel to them such as an eponymously named Burnt Orange gin martini with Salcombe Gin, Cointreau, Lillet Blanc and grilled orange skin.

So how will Burnt Orange distinguish herself from her big sisters, whose popularity may well intimidate the younger sibling in a family if it weren’t for their obvious high achiever genetics? Razak had this to say:

“Over the past couple of years, I’ve had countless conversations with friends and loyal customers about the need for a totally new space. Something different – not quite a restaurant, not quite a bar – but somewhere that combines great food and amazing drinks with the right music. It’s somewhere you can catch up with friends, hang-out and just have fun! Our vision for Burnt Orange is just that, “Right Here, Right Now” and we can’t wait to open our doors this summer”
