From cheap and cheerful eateries to slightly more upscale restaurants, Brighton has no shortage of places that offer Bring your own Bottle (BYOB). Whether you fancy a Lebanese feast, Japanese curry or a perfectly grilled piece of fish, we’ve rounded up the city’s best spots to bring your favourite tipple. After all, the more money you save on drinks, the more you have to spend on food!

A Taste of Sahara

Combining flavours from Lebanese, North African and Middle Eastern cuisine, A Taste of Sahara is one of Brighton’s gems. From Tagines and Couscous to Halal Kebabs, the extensive menu boasts an impressive array of popular and more obscure North African dishes. Order one of the popular Mezze plates, served with warm, delicious flat breads, to pair with your favourite bottle, or for parties of 10 or more go all out and enjoy an Arabian Feast. Exotic flavours at a reasonable price and BYOB? Yes, please!

A Taste of Sahara can be found at 103 Western Rd, Brighton BN1 2AA

Located near Brighton Dome, Pompoko is a popular spot for simple, fast, and fresh Japanese food. Choose from a variety of dishes including traditional Japanese Curry, Donburi and Yakisoba noodle dishes as well as a range of light salads.

The Salt Room

As one of the UK’s most iconic seaside town, it is perhaps unsurprising that Brighton boasts some of the country’s best seafood restaurants. However, for a truly memorable meal book a table at The Salt Room - winner of the 2017 Seafood Restaurant of the Year. Located opposite the West Pier, the modern British restaurant offers stunning sea views and a menu specialising in seafood cooked over charcoal. A daily changing specials board also displays the catch of the day, while those after a meatier affair will find terrific grilled meat options to choose from. Better yet, every Monday is BYO wine. Monday’s have never looked so good.

The Salt Room can be found at 106 Kings Road, Brighton BN1 2FU

Si Signore

For an authentic Italian meal look no further than Si Signore. Tucked away down the Laines, the rustic Italian eatery serves a range of fantastic meat and fish dishes, pizzas and pastas, as well as delicious desserts. Enjoy your meal in the cosy restaurant, complete with candle lit tables, and excellent service. Just don’t forget to BYOB - because nothing goes better with a big bowl of pasta than a bottle of wine.

Si Signore can be found at 12 Sydney Street, North Laines, Brighton BN1 4AN

The Coal Shed
