Grab a table by the window and watch the neon-lit bustle along Brighton Pier, or take a secluded pew by the open kitchen to watch the talented chefs at work.
Dress for artsy romance: floaty brights and colourful stripes.
Join the in-the-know locals who flock to the Jetty; we love the warm lighting, blue-hued decor, comfy banquette-seating and gleaming marble surfaces, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering an eyeful of ocean. Chef Lee Redman’s seasonally-changing menu prides itself on just-off-the-quay produce; he casts a wide net for global influences, with dishes like tronçon of turbot with smoked mash and truffle beurre-blanc, and platters of fresh fruits de mer and sashimi. The dessert menu is similarly inspiring, with an ambrosial peanut-butter parfait, served with salted-toffee popcorn and toasted marshmallows.
Don’t leave without trying a Smoked Salt Negroni at marble-clad HarBar (we’d go back for those – and the red-and-gold decor – alone); it’s a British seaside take on the Italian classic that combines gin, Campari, sweet vermouth, smoked salt, thyme and blood orange. Decision-phobic? Opt for the tempting Dealer’s Choice: tell the bartender what poisons you like, and they’ll create a personalised cocktail just for you.
The Jetty serves breakfast from 7am till 10am, lunch from noon till 3pm, and dinner from 6pm till 10pm. From Thursday to Saturday, HarBar welcomes patrons from noon till 1am, and hits dry land at 11pm from Sunday to Wednesday.
The room service menu has a selection of favourites from the hotel restaurant, which is available 24 hours a day. However, there’s a limited late-night menu from 10pm.
