Flint House Brighton

Highly placed as one of the best Brighton restaurants in the 2023 Brighton Restaurant Awards.

One of Brighton’s leading restauranteurs Ben McKellar opened the Flint House Brighton, at the same time as the Hannington’s Lanes area of Brighton was renovated which was about 2018-19. Other popular food and drink offerings in this new area include: Champagne and Oysters at Riddle and Finns, vegan burgers at Vurger and Co and 17 Grams coffee shop or Brighton cafe. there are also a number of Brighton pubs nearby, popular Brighton cocktail bars and an array of places offering a super brunch in the Brighton Lanes.

The Hanningtons Brighton area is a beautifully designed area in Brighton’s Lanes, which is for pedestrian use only. It is an exciting part of the city as it is home to artisan boutiques, designers, restaurants in Brighton and much more. Think sustainability and think eco-green vertical walls, you will see iconic murals, there is plenty of space to sit outside at The Flint House Brighton. You will also escape the hustle and bustle of the restaurants on the seafront as this place is sheltered from your busy tourist areas.

Ben and his wife Pamela are co-founders of the ever-popular Gingerman group, with The Gingerman restaurant in Brighton being their flagship venue. Their Sussex restaurant is the Ginger Fox located in Henfield and their critically acclaimed Hove restaurant is The Ginger Pig which provides restaurant and accommodation.

    This is a young hidden gem. I was taken by my family to enjoy the taster menu and wine pairing. It was a wonderful experience of gradually increasing taste sensations which were excellently paired with the wines. The venue and decor is creative and, whilst large enough to hold bigger parties, it is well mapped to keep it feeling personal. I cannot say enough about the staff who were very knowledgable about the plates, very professional in their conduct and very personable to keep it feeling comfortable. It was great value for the experience and I will definitely be re-visiting and recommending to my friends.

    Can’t wait to be able to enjoy the beautiful food here again. I especially love sitting on the bar where you have a view of the kitchen, you get to watch the chefs in their element, creating delicious dishes.. though be warned.. this can be dangerous.. I often end up ordering extra dishes once I see something scrumptious going out that I haven’t ordered. The chefs are always happy to tell you about the dishes. They also serve the most perfectly balanced mojito!! I know it will be worth the wait. Until then stay home, stay safe xx
