© The Secret Restaurant Ltd. 2009 | Company Number 7976620 


If there has been a theme this year for us, it has been Spanish food and drink – the unique flavours and aromas and the style of service. We’ve been discovering new tastes and flavours, playing with wines from Jerez and matching them with our favourite morsels to develop new menus and ideas and finding ourselves seeking out a relevant space for the next Secret Restaurant (it’s been a while!).


And we’ve found such a perfect cellar space for our transient bodega. The Basement in Kensington Street in the North Laines of Brighton.


We’re going to move the kitchen in for ONE NIGHT ONLY, get the music on and get the Spanish flavours going...get your friends together and come and spend a rowdy night eating with us – your table is yours for the night...


For £20 per head you get all of these...each meat or fish dish has a vegetarian equivalent – please let us know if you would like the vegetarian version.
