Scattered with Victorian Villas, park crescents, a rescued elm tree and an entourage of notable eateries and drinkeries is where you’ll find Seven Dials. Taking its name from the seven roads shooting off from ‘The Dials’ junction. It’s an laid back mixture of hip and trendy establishments with well bedded in local favourites. Peruse the countless delis, wine bars, flower shops and cafes on a lazy afternoon. Bliss. Seven Dials even has its fair share of things that go bump in the night, the Prestonville Arms is said to have a resident ghostie that likes to move things around in the cellar after dark. Spooky or what!

Just a short walk from the station but never a hen do or foreign student party in sight, this is one of the best areas to really nestle down in to true Brighton life.

Seven Dials Restaurants

You’re rarely further than an arms length away from some decent nosh on the hill, but our tried and tested favourites are Murasaki for classic, tasty sushi. No sushi belt nor neon lights just great food and the best plum wine in the City.

The Shakespeare’s Head is a brilliant boozer, complete with more types of sausage, mash and gravy than you can shake a stick at. It’s fair to say that Brighton has gone burger mad over the last year or so, but Coggings is a bit special. We’ll let you try for yourselves.

Seven Dials wouldn’t be complete without The Red Snapper - Well priced, well spiced Thai food? Check. Quirky decor? Check. BYO policy. Oh yes, you betcha!

Cafes in Seven Dials

Joe's is a true community staple. 27 years of breakfasts, brunches and lunches that spoil and delight. Super veggie and vegan friendly but with all the meaty goodness too, this place is a true hidden gem..although not so hidden that they haven't won a zillion awards over the years.

The Almond Tree is a vegan and veggie’s dream come true with hearty brekkies, seasonal mains with GF options and stunning homemade cakes. Brighton favourites Small Batch and Flour Pot Bakery each have an offering in The Dials too, giving you a fully rounded Brightonian experience.

Seven Dials Pubs & Bars

OK, so we all need one of those pubs in our life. The 'I'm meeting mates and I want something lively but not so crowded I can't get served so we'll have a few there before hitting town' pubs. The Cow was born for that.

A real Seven Dials crowd pleaser is The Chimney House, friendly staff, a good selection of boozy staples, hip decor and exceptional food. For a true taste of Sussex give the Good Companions (or ‘Goodies’) a whirl, fine food, great beer and a cracking sun trap of a garden. What’s not to love.
