Being a seafront venue you can expect the freshest of catches from the south coast as well as meat sourced from Sussex farms. You’re never more than an arm’s reach away from a plant-eater in Brighton, so The Gather Inn ensures there are options for vegetarians and vegans as well as a changing daily specials board.

    It was my first time visiting the Gather Inn to have some lunch on a wet Saturday afternoon. The food was absolutely fantastic. Traditional pub grub with a Caribbean twist. I had the Jerked Lamb Shank special with fried plantain and rice n Peas. Flavours were beautiful. Bar staff very friendly and attentive as well. Well done guys. Loved it. 👍🏻

    I’m a big fan of the Caribbean menu, and the general atmosphere. There’s a bright and open atmosphere and an impressively stocked bar. My favourite element of everything I tried was the Lobo’s Hot Trini Sauce, and thought it went best with the jerk chicken. Good spot for watching sport, plus a great quiz on Thursdays.

    I ate here last Saturday night, and I highly recommend it. The braised pig cheek melted in the mouth and the fish stew was incredible, so tasty. The service was faultless and the bar had a huge choice of drinks and. I especially enjoyed the bottle of Bolney!
