The Dorset Street Bar Review, Brighton

My colleagues and I headed to Brighton for an all day work conference. A day out of the office on a Friday is perfect, especially when you’re off to the seaside. The conference schedule was 10am till 6pm with an hour and half for lunch wahay. Whilst on lunch we came across many chain restaurants, but thought we would try something different and ended up in The Dorset Street Bar on North Road Brighton.

It was pretty full and busy when we arrived, but managed to get a table for 4. The décor was pretty funky, wooden chairs, Marylyn Monroe style picture frames around the restaurant and the stair wall leading to the toilets downstairs were all covered with posters, which was pretty cool.

Looking through the menu the choices were great all 4 of us didn’t know what to pick, but we had long enough to decide due to the restaurant being busy the waiter/waitress were kept on their toes. So We started off with the drinks:

And I opted for the Vegetarian Sausage and Mash served with buttered mash potato, onion gravy and Root Crisps (£8.95). This was scrumptious; the mashed potatoes were lovely and buttery and melted in my mouth. The onion gravy was rich with a lovely texture and flavour and complimented the sausages and mash:

The Dorset is a welcoming pub, it has lots of character and I can understand why it was so busy. The food was gorgeous, and on a bright sunny day you are able to are sit outside. Even though the service was slow the day we went, if your ever in Brighton, make a visit to The Dorset Street Bar, it’s a great pub with even better food.
