Murmur, Brighton

Nestled in The Arches on Brighton’s seafront with views of the West Pier, Murmur is the sister restaurant to the fabulous 64 Degrees. 

The name Murmur comes from the word murmuration which is the shape that the starlings make when they flock and fly between Brighton’s two piers, with their logo representing the six arches in which the restaurant is located.

St. John #OneMichelinStar (Revisit)

Whilst my wife met with family for brunch at The Ned, I took the opportunity to slip away to something more my scene… lunch at St. John.

What Michelin say, “A glorious celebration of British fare and a champion of 'nose to tail' eating. Utilitarian surroundings and a refreshing lack of ceremony ensure the food is the focus; it's appealingly simple, full of flavour and very satisfying.

Lyle’s #OneMichelinStar (revisit)

At No.54 on the World’s Best Restaurants list, Lyle’s has been a favourite of mine since it opened. No trip to London is the same without paying them a visit. The menu is always interesting, highly seasonal and, most of all, the dishes are full of flavour.

What Michelin say, “The young chef-owner is an acolyte of Fergus Henderson and delivers similarly unadulterated flavours from seasonal British produce, albeit from a set menu at dinner. This pared-down approach extends to a room that's high on functionality, but considerable warmth comes from the keen young service team.”

Raw Scallop, Fairy Ring Mushrooms & Cobnut

Girolles, Cotswold White Egg & Salted Gooseberries

Lamb’s Heart, Liver & Unripe Strawberries

Sea Trout Head & Fennel

Morello Cherry Bakewell Tart

Date of lunch: 05/08/17
