The new garden looks brilliant! One of the best looking bars in Brighton! Best garden for sure! This place is something special in Brighton and I've never seen anything like it before else where!

Theres no other place like Neighbourhood in Brighton, it has a massive roofed heated garden! Everyone usually comes on here to make a fuss but I just wanted to say that I'll be going here for 'New Years Eve 2017 Brighton'! Really is a feast for the eyes, ears and mouth! Can't go wrong! One of Brightons best kept secrets... More

Stoped here for my birthday tea with friends. Absolutely lovely food, freshly cooked, found some dishes could have been larger but everything was excellent.

It can be a little hit and miss with Neighbourhood, both in terms of food and service. On the whole, they have a good Thing going. Maybe I'm throwing back to the days of the grumpy foul mouthed chef who could be heard cursing throughout the bar and garden, or perhaps parts of an order not being received. Regardless, this...

Went for breakfast on a Sunday, had a bit of a wait as the young girl was on her own due to a member of staff not turning up, so taking orders, drinks etc alone, also a large table had just ordered, with a small kitchen and I think one Chef working. I thought that the breakfast would arrive rushed... More

Just wanted to say thank you to Ben and the team at Neighbourhood Bar for providing an exceptionally warm welcome to all the guests for my wife's surprise birthday. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff at Neighbourhood, who made a summer's day party go off with a bang in the glorious 'Ibiza villa' styled garden. Food was great... More

Stopped in for a burger and a brew, wife had nice glass of wine and appetizer. Service was a touch slow, but our waitress was most pleasant and gave us some suggestions for places to visit and see during our stay in Brighton.

I had lunch in the garden on a sunny day and ordered the Alabama burger. The flavours were excellent, a different yet succulent white creamy sauce with tasty monteray jack cheese. There were also crispy bits of potato in it for the crunch. I would definitely return here to try a different burger.

Visited with the girls on a weekend stopover in Brighton. Neighbourhood is a great find. The beer garden makes a great place to hang-out and get some sunshine, there are also covered area if it gets a bit cool / rainy. I love the quirky decor and relaxed vibe. We loved the drinks - lots of gins to choose from... More

I can see from the reviews below that I am writing a review to complain about that same 50 ish/older lady/waitress that works here. I have been to Neighbourhood before and really enjoyed the drinks and sitting outside, however this time we went about 2 months ago, went to go and sit outside. I pointed out a table to my... More
