Malmaison Brighton – Malmaison Bar & Grill

Malmaison Bar & Grill

The Malmaison Bar & Grill is set in the prime position of Brighton’s bustling marina, part of the Malmaison Hotel and open to all for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The view alone should bring you here as the Malmaison boasts the biggest and best terrace in Brighton for overlooking the sea. Their food and drink are a further reason to venture out of the city centre to get well fed in comfortable and elegant surroundings. The Malmaison Bar & Grill is known for its contemporary dining and signature cocktails.

They serve up classic and seasonal dishes with a modern, edgy, Asian twist from a passionate team. The chefs have curated a menu that revolves around quality and flavour with a strong focus on prime grass-fed British beef, succulent steaks and sides to die for. The famous Afternoon Teas and Cocktail Making Parties make the Malmaison Bar & Grill a firm favourite for all occasions, all year round. 

The Bar & Grill

Grilled food is the star of the show at the Malmaison Bar & Grill. Well matured and choice cuts from the butchers who supply the Royal family the huge temptations of the Grill menu. Steak Frites, Ribeye and Fillets, seasoned and cooked to personal perfection with sumptuous sauce choices and sides will sate your steak-filled desires.

Beef or Black Bean pattys sandwiched between brioche buns are big favourites, and a selection of classic mains will delight anyone who isn’t in the mood for meat. From Ballotine of Free Range Turkey, Roast Hake and an Aubergine Schnitzel suggests that the Malmasion Bar & Grill are eager to cater for every diner. Keep an eye out for offers – especially the 50% off Steak Night every Thursday.

Sunday Roast

If you like the sound of the Sunday Lunch unlimited, you can experience the ultimate Sunday lunch with the Malmaison Bar & Grill’s endless Chef’s Table. We’re talking soup, salads, seafood to start. The Sunday Lunch classics with ALL the trimmings for your main course followed by some enchanting desserts to round off the meal. The Valrhona Dark Chocolate and Cherry Trifle is indulgent and delicious while the Pineapple Carpaccio gives you Sunday Lunch a light fresh finish without having to adjust your belt.

Sunday Lunch here is not to be rushed, the team want to make sure you are well fed and to give you quality time with your favourite people. If you want to feel a little better about indulging in such a feast, we suggest a Sunday Lunch at the Malmasion Bar & Grill is the perfect place following a brisk seafront walk below the chalky cliffs – free car parking too.

Afternoon Tea

The Malmaison has always been a firm favourite for an Afternoon Tea – and we know why. They add the element of surprise to this beloved dining experience in all the right ways. They love the tradition of sipping tea, or bubbles, munching on a dainty sandwich – but prefer to add a twist or two in terms of seasonality or trends…a cunning way to keep you coming back for more. As well as the afternoon tea delights, the location is just perfect for a gathering. The vibe is chilled, whilst the decor is fire – and on a sunny day there is no better place to be than sitting on the terrace, soaking up the sun with a scone in sight and a glass of fizz in hand.

Cocktails at the Malmaison Bar & Grill are next level good. The magically entitled Malchemists serve up pleasure in a glass. With the playfulness, mirroring their version of Afternoon Tea, the cocktail menu has twists and turns that will delight. Olive & Lemon Verbena Martini, Salted Caramel Espresso Martini, and a rhubarb Rossini Bellini are just some of the fine flavours the mixologists have to offer.

Get the Party Started at Malmaison Brighton

We’ve waxed lyrical about the prime location of Malmaison Bar & Grill so it should be no surprise that we recommend it for future parties. The Bar, the restaurant, the terrace and the adjoining rooms are all gorgeous, spacious …and did I already mention free parking! There is a secret room within a room in the main dining area – a table for 16 surrounded by sheer drapes that can be closed up enough for your dinner party to feel private, but still very much picking up the atmosphere of the evening.

Malmaison Brighton

Work and Play are the philosophy at Malmaison so corporate events, team activities with private dining is a great option. For Wedding’s the Malmaison is a wonderful choice in terms of location, ease, beautiful bedrooms for guests and rooms that can make the smaller weddings feel intimate, to up to 120 sittings for those who have a big guest list.

    Sunday menu is best in Brighton. Get there early. Excellent farmers table selection

  2. Angie Elliott-Dickson

    Visited Malmaison for Sunday lunch and it was really good food and service. Also had afternoon tea which was different to the usual conventional offering. We had wraps and mini burgers, great scones and lovely assortment of cakes

    No expense spared, modern, trendy and quite magnificent. Superb Sunday sharing lunch . Farmers table followed by beef which was presented on an elegant table stand which included all the trimmings. Highly recommended!
