Just a five-minute walk from Brighton train station is The Edinburgh. Known as The Eddy to locals, owners Ali, Gez and their team are delighted to welcome regulars and visitors alike. No matter when you decide to visit, you’ll be greeted with a smile and served delicious food alongside an eclectic range of wine from around the world, malt whiskies and local ale in a friendly and convivial atmosphere.
The menu at The Eddy is not one you’d expect to discover in a traditional British pub. The team recently launched an exciting tapas menu packed full of authentic Mediterranean flavours. The menu has been carefully created by head chef Raül, who has worked at numerous Michelin-starred restaurants. Every dish is made with the highest quality local ingredients and produce from Spain, which Raül selects himself. Diners will be pleased to see an array of popular tapas dishes including patatas bravas, deep-fried calamari and Padrón peppers. Also on the menu are a selection of regional small plates diners may not have tried before, but most definitely should. The beef cheek and pepper skewers are beautifully tender and the traditional Basque dish of salted cod with garlic and olive oil is absolutely divine. If you’re looking for something more substantial, why not opt for the chicken and seafood paella or a main of grilled chicken with rich rojo sauce? *Price represents the cost of three tapas and a drink.
