Why we love it

Prepare yourself for quirky cooking from Englishmen invaded by the French, classic flavours mixed with modern techniques, delivering flavour and tantalising tummies. Expect to be hypnotised by their innovative plates and warmed with satisfaction. Traditional classics served with a crispy coating of love!

Chef, Christian aka Chrisdave began cooking as a kid but then went on to train and learn his trade in the bustling kitchens in the south of France and The French Alps. Later Chrisdave went on to spend 5 years working in London, at establishments such as The Delaunay, Berners Tavern and Le Pont de la Tour. Last year Chris moved back to Brighton and worked at the acclaimed restaurant, The Pass, in The South Lodge Hotel before moving on to create his Pop Up Croustillant D.

Sebastian, the younger brother of Christian, has been around the Brighton pub/restaurant scene for a number of years now after a spell in France, heading up The Tempest Inn, The Three Little Birds and more recently The Lord Nelson Inn. He also has a background in baking, and cooks a mean Roast Dinner!

delicious food, fast service and it was friendly


Really amazing selection of vegetarian and vegan meals and you get a lot for your money! Super yummy, too.


I love the style of the place, very old fashioned retro. The food was brilliantly plated and was so tasty! Staff were very tentative too.


Good selection of beers on tap and nice pub food. Lovely area to sit in the back with a “hanging garden”.


Food was amazing. Highly recommend.


Newly redecorated bar which looks fab. Friendly, helpful staff & tasty food with loads of veggie/vegan options.
