The No.1 Bar and Bistro is open for a breakfast which will be served to your table. Due to a reduced seating capacity in our restaurant, your table will need to be pre-booked on your arrival. Please note the busiest slots are between 9am – 10am.

The No1 Bar & Bistro opened at the Queens Hotel Brighton in April 2007. It has become a firm favourite with hotel guests and locals looking to enjoy a meal or drink whilst enjoying panoramic views across the Brighton seafront. The No1 Bar & Bistro is an ideal venue to enjoy a meal or cocktail before heading out into the Brighton nightlife.


The menu is crammed full of your favourite dishes. We also serve Afternoon Tea, which can be enjoyed at a window table with views over the promenade. We offer an extensive wine list that has something for every palate.
