This is easily the best place to eat on Brighton beach, especially on a sunny day.

Ever since it opened in 2003, this laidback little restaurant has been flying the flag for Sussex - it makes a point of sourcing top-quality wild, organic and free-range ingredients from within a 35-mile radius. The other reason I like it is that it’s right on the beach.

Food and drink

The people at Due South are particularly good with fish but local pheasant and pigeon are also offered in season - the menu changes each month. Even the wine list is air mile-conscious, with several Sussex wines to choose from and nothing from further afield than Italy or Hungary.

Ambience

Due South is a simple, whitewashed space with a lovely view of the beach from the upstairs window and a few tables outside.

Service

It's professional and efficient.

Location

It’s under the seafront promenade, in one of the arches which used to be fishermen’s stores, close to [node:173582].

Price advice

With most main courses hovering around the £17-£18.50 mark, it’s more expensive than it looks.

Tables to book

It’s well worth booking ahead for a chance to sit in the window.
