    We arrived on a busy Saturday night. Our service to the table was prompt. The floor manager promptly arranged a bottle of wine and away we went! Pleasant food. Friendly atmosphere. Lovely night out. Staff were great. I would certainly recommend Hotel Brighton.

    Hotel Brighton is our local hotel. We frequent there often and the staff are always friendly and helpful. The menu is full of variety and the wine reasonably priced. When the upstairs bar is open it’s worth a visit. Front bar can be noisy but the dining area is quiet. Will always return

    The service was absolutely horrendous! We waited over 30 minutes before our food order was taken. Our entrees came out quite quickly but the main meals took a ridiculously long time. We even had to ask 2 times where 3 of the meals were. Eventually the last meal was delivered after just about everyone had finished their meals. We will not return again.

    Food was okay, our group ate parmas, schnitzel & pasta. Chips were tasty, parmas average and side salad was just salad leaves. Bistro dinning space had zero ambience as it's used as a walkway to the rooftop so foot traffic is high and noise from the public bar pretty loud but to be expected on a busy Friday night. Could improve dessert menu options and inject some flavour into the parmas.

    Some good old style items on the menu. My serve of Gnocchi was tasty and enough to eat on a warm day. Friend had a pleasant parma meal and enjoyed the wine options. Coffee was excellent. Splitting the bill at the counter was much appreciated. I have been there many times, but not usually to eat. Keep it simple, and dont change anything. Very accessible location. We will be back.... ,

    Really noisy. Maybe they need to put in some acoustic material to take the noise more. I thought it was over priced for the size of the meals. If I'm being really picky when I finally decided on a meal I was told it wasn't available.

    We really enjoyed steak night at Hotel Brighton. Yummy food, steak was tender and cooked to perfection. The staff were attentive but busy and they were delayed when bringing the dessert menu so we decided not to have any. Coffee was nice though. Noise levels were energetic but we could hear each other across the table.

    Booked for 8pm and arrived at 8.20pm and the staff were fine with us being late. The service was excellent and took our drink order immediately and then the food order once we had reviewed the menu and decided. The food came quickly and the staff were always up for a chat and very helpful. Overall very good place to relax and have a great meal and very reasonable prices.

    The food was good and the location ideal - next to the theatre. The crowd was lively and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. What spoilt it for us was the level of noise. We don't like shouting to be heard. The wait staff were very good and the service quick and professional.
