2 AA Rosette restaurant in Brighton
GB1 brings a touch of playfulness to any mealtime. This 2AA Rosette restaurant developed by Executive Chef Alan White and his passionate brigade offers a contemporary vibe which steps sensitively away from the hotel’s historic character and Regency architecture. Centred around it’s raised bar built between the original columns of the building and topped off with a striking central chandelier, a selection of booth style seating awaits.
The adjoining terrace area provides the perfect seafront backdrop to while away a long afternoon or evening. Alongside vegan and vegetarian dishes, the freshly caught South coast seafood (lobster, skate, sea bass and much more) couple perfectly with Wagyu beef, Sussex steaks and Southdown rumps.
Most Grand mornings start with a Grand breakfast. If you’re staying with us, you’ll enjoy a complimentary array of continental and hot breakfast favourites. Or, choose a surprisingly generous dish from our a la carte breakfast menu, and wash it down with a GB1 sunrise breakfast cocktail (non-alcoholic!), or even a Bloody Mary; before braving Brighton seafront from the best launch pad in the city.
From Monday to Saturday, you can experience our seasonal mid week menu. Our best value tasting experience comes in a perfectly formed two or three course bundle. And of course, our full a la carte menu is still available for a properly indulgent feast.
We can do traditional too. Or, why not buck the trend again and opt for a fish dish? Who says you can’t have a smoked haddock kedgeree scotch egg, aged sirloin of beef and Yorkshires, followed by Aribica coffee custard. Not us!

Comprising of seafood such as fresh crab, treacle-cured salmon, Poole Bay oysters and Keta caviar, this tea is undoubtedly one of a kind and is a delicious alternative to the traditional afternoon tea experience.
