About The Set

The Set in Brighton is an intimate dining experience that serves just one ever-changing tasting menu from Wednesday to Friday. The restaurant takes great care when it comes to sourcing and provenance, focusing only on micro-seasonal British ingredients, heritage slow grown vegetables, sustainable seafood and native rare breed meats. Serving between 16-20 courses in the evening to just 18 customers, eating at The Set is a unique experience that takes guests on a journey of never-tried-before flavours.  

Because the menu is dictated so closely by the seasons, it constantly changes depending on what’s fresh and local at the time. Each description of the dishes is succinct yet brief so as to retain the element of surprise when diners are presented with each plate. Examples might include dishes entitled chalk stream sushi, set breakfast, bread and butter, BBQ pork belly, nacho and a sweet dish simply named strawberry. Do with that what you will.  

There is an optional drinks pairing available at an extra cost, which includes a carefully selected range of delicious drinks.  

The restaurant itself is cosy and rustic with distressed wooden flooring, small wooden tables and a fireplace set against a red brick wall. Guests are able to take a seat at the counter, which overlooks the open kitchen, and enjoy a drink before dinner at one of its bar stools. The relaxed, shabby-chic feel of the space provides a rather pleasing contrast to the refined, contemporary plates turned out by the kitchen team. 

When you book a table at The Set, it is yours for the night with the recommended dining time being between 2.5-3 hours. Do note that due to a small kitchen team of two, The Set is unable to cater for dietary requirements.

Fantastic tasting menu from a tiny team and kitchen. Best high end in Brighton

I don't do high end often, I'm more a cheap eats girl so I thought I may not like this place. My word - it was fantastic !!! Amazing food, really creative and tasty. And super service, friendly and attentive. Really have nothing bad to say about it. It's value for money for the experience for sure and I will be back.

hidden gem in Brighton UK

The Set restaurant is amazing!

The food is fresh, innovative with wonderful flavours. The mix of modern techniques, local produce and asian influence in their food is outstanding. The team is small and works well together with chefs sometimes delivering food to tables, this adds a unique interaction for us customers.

A definite must in you are in brighton
