You might not consider burgers a wholly unique dish, but you'll never look at them in the same way again once you've visited this eccentric little plot. MEATliquor is not only laced in American flavours and cracking cocktails, it's doused in neons and boasts its own DJ booth. 

One of the most romantic restaurants in Brighton, The Set is not only part of the Artist Residence, but they also offer tasty seasonal plates. Designed to appeal to every sense, they are serving up bites from posh crumpets and pickled herring to whole lobster and bone marrow hash browns.
