Supporting local businesses – Lucky Beach Brighton

Lucky Beach are members of the Sustainable Restaurant Association and as such, work to reduce their footprint to an absolute minimum whilst supporting local farmers and small businesses. For example, all of the fish used at Lucky Beach is sourced from BNFS (Brighton & Newhaven Fish Sales). This is a sustainable wholesale fish supplier based on the South coast that catch local fish and seafood. The Sussex meat served at Lucky Beach is from Goodwood Home Farm which is 100% organic. And for a drink, Brighton’s very own Bison Beer Crafthouse has created an APA speciality, naming it the ‘Lucky Beach.’

Ready for whatever the weather decides!

Inside the fisherman’s arch, the cafe is set up for the days when the British weather is not at its finest, but when the sun comes out you’ll have plenty of space to enjoy it with 100 seats split between the shaded patio and beachfront tables – perfect for a spot of sunbathing.

Serious about coffee

Lucky Beach takes coffee pretty seriously. Just up the road they run Brighton’s largest roastery and supply most of the better coffee houses across the city including their own, Redroaster, located in St James Street.

What’s on the menu at Lucky Beach Brighton?

The chefs use native breed organic Sussex beef for hamburgers which is grass-fed and dry-aged.  Fish is landed locally and delivered each morning so occasionally there might be changes to the menu depending on availability. Chicken and pork is all local and free-range. The best way we can think to describe the menu style is almost Californian, with plenty of fresh flavours and healthy options for those who don’t fancy a heavy lunch. When the sun shines it’s possibly the best place to be hanging out at in the city.


Their famous eggs are local and organic and are from Colombian Blacktails, Lohman Browns and Goldline’s and graze on grass and forage outside.

fish burger

Enjoy classics such as fish and chips and burgers, or choose something light and fresh such as their fish tacos or avocado ‘Vegan Hippy Dip’ sandwich! The brunch menu is served until 11.45 am and is well worth getting up early to grab a seat on the beach – their coffee is roasted locally and treats such as avocado on toast and brioche french toast is sure to awaken your tastebuds.

Lucky Beach have been awarded the UK’s ‘Best Organic Burger’ by Elle, now that’s definitely worth visiting for!


Off the sauce?

Lucky Beach offers some of the most delicious booze-free drinks in the city, including beetroot lemonade, elderflower fizz, and fresh passionfruit fizz – perfect if you’re head is a little sore or you just fancy drinking something soft. Bottoms up!

Fundraising for Rwanda school

Lucky Beach has fundraised to help build a school in Musenyi, Rwanda. They did this through hosting an event where their staff all worked for free and local suppliers donated food & drink to be served. Michelin Star specials were served and guests would enjoy a day of great food & drink whilst supporting a good cause.  Look out for more events held at Lucky Beach.

    Can’t beat this shorefront spot for a drink and some yummy grub. The fish tacos get my vote as the perfect pairing with one of their knockout gin cocktails. The service has always been fantastic and once you get your table you’ll have panoramic views of the sea. I love Lucky Beach!

  2. Alice Woodhouse

    Had a really good burger and chips sat outside in the sun, their homemade mayo is a gamechanger. It’s not the cheapest, but to be fair the food is really good so its definitely worth spending the bit extra to get a posh burger! It can get pretty busy but that’s standard for the seafront so all in all, I was happy!

  3. Laura Kelsey

    This is my favourite brunch spot in the city! I love sitting watching the sea while eating their crab eggs Benedict which is amazing! They also do morning cocktails which are perfect for a birthday celebration! Staff are so friendly and they welcome dogs (and spoil them rotten).

    Gorgeous breakfast with local produce, you couldn’t ask for much more on a sunny day on the beach. Staff were all very nice indeed. Thank you!!

    The bubble waffles and fried chickin for breakfast were so good that we came back for lunch. Not many places as good as this right on a beach. We very much recommend.

  7. Emma Harrel

    The burgers at Lucky Beach are great! I love the tomato leather they add, a twist on ketchup. The halloumi burger with a thyme roasted flat mushroom & red peppers very tasty. A prime spot on a sunny day.

  8. Emma Clare

    On a sunny day it just doesn’t get much better. The menu has something for everyone – our niece loved her burger and I love the fish tacos! A great selection of non-alcoholic interesting drinks.
