A little bit quirky

With its artsy vibe and rustic meets retro interiors, The Chimney House Brighton is unpretentious and has the homely aesthetics of a country estate. Think antler chandeliers, retro pendant lamps, rustic furniture and you’ll be on your way there.

Local partnerships 

Not only does The Chimney House serve up mouthwateringly delicious gastro grub fare from their open kitchen, but they also source the finest local ingredients from Sussex farmers, growers and foragers. We applaud Charlie, the proprietor and Brighton head chef for achieving his goal of combining his knowledge and passion for foraged produce and introducing it to his menus in an affordable way.

    Had an epic festive dinner here with friends just before Christmas. It was perfect – seasonal produce, great wine choices and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. It’s the ultimate gastro-pub in my opinion.

  4. Emma Harrel

    The Chimney House is my new local and I’m so pleased it is! The staff are always friendly & welcoming, and I just had my first roast there last week, it was superb! I’ll definitely go back for the vegan roast or try something on the dinner menu.

  5. Rupert Kent

    Excellent food for a neighbourhood pub and worth the trip to get there. Such a different menu with emphasis on foraged ingredients, everything locally sourced – and we really do mean locally sourced. Expect plenty of ingredients on your plate that you may not have come across in the past from elderflowers, moss – so all in all the Chimney House has quite a unique place in the pub food market/ Keep up the good work Charlie and team!
