Criticisms? It's apalling that it's not open at all on Sundays for a hangover brunch burger and a real shame they close early too for those of us craving meat on the way home from a night out. Would also be nice if the double burgers could be one burger but twice as thick so it could be cooked rarer but hey...

The dinner menu may not be very cheap but the lunch menu at £15 for two courses is probably the best value in town for eating out if you like good food. And it's certainly the best meal I've eaten anywhere in Brighton. Not perfect or top-end stuff but miles better than other restaurants in town that charge far more. And for the same price as a pub roast, you're getting a far superior product.
The cooking isn't highly technical but it's executed pretty damn well. Service was a little slow as the place filled up at the weekend but the freshly baked bread we had while waiting was not bad at all if a creamy little under-seasoned without salted butter available. The butterbean soup amuse bouche was fantasticly creamy.
For starters we had confit duck croquette and confit pork shoulder. They were very similar but both were delicious - moist and not over-brined or over-cooked.
For mains, we had haddock and lamb shoulder. The tarragon beurre blanc with the fish was perfectly sharp and rich and the portion much more generous than is usual with this level of cuisine. The lamb was heavenly - cripsy on the outside but still pink and juicy inside.
The desserts were a chocolate and salted caramel pot and lemon mousse/curd. The chocolate would have gone much better with the light caramel if it was darker but was the perfect consistency. The lemon dessert was lovely and light but the shortbread biscuit was just a smidgen overcooked (but far from ruined).
Overall, I'd highly recommend this restaurant.

Worth it for the squid hole alone.

If you're a wanker looking for a trendy place to tell people yoi've eaten at don't bother (and skip the wine too) but if you want the most authentic and tastiest pizza available, this is your place. They have the best pizza oven in town and use quality ingredients for every part of the pizzas. Don't reveal yourself to be a moron by leaving crusts on your plate - their sourdough bases destroy anything else you would have eaten. Go there!
