Meet our team
RBJ is run by a team of hospitality experts who work with more than 150 venues throughout Brighton, Hove and Sussex.
We work with Brighton’s best restaurants, bars and hotels, having developed our relationships with each one through more than a decade in the local hospitality industry. We’re the marketing experts behind RestaurantsBrighton.co.uk, Brighton’s number one food and drink information resource, which we started in 2011.
We also organise the annual BRAVO Awards – Brighton’s only entirely publicly generated Food and Drink awards. The latest awards saw almost thirty thousand votes cast across 16 categories to generate our acclaimed 2019 BRAVO winners and top 20s.
