Dining with Friends is an established group for people who enjoy social dining. Join us for the opportunity to explore Brighton’s eclectic mix of restaurants and venues, enjoy conversation along with good wine and have fun, and hopefully make new friends.

To join the group we request a recent photo, a few words of introduction and your participation to an event.

We have a dining event scheduled for at least one Friday, monthly; other events are also held: lunches, dinners, music.

Your suggestions for dining venues are very welcome, as we are keen to uncover hidden gems. Simply send your suggestions to the organising team, we will then post and see if there is interest.

It is sensible to have a few guidelines to ensure a great experience for all, so please be prepared to pay for whatever you eat and drink, be honest, respect others and be courteous. Most of all though relax and enjoy. One key guideline is that when you book a place and fail to turn up, without having advised the host (or next available person attending the event), then you would be removed from the site.

Good Friends, Good Food, Good Life is our mantra and it’s working well! Look forward to meeting new diners. Please feel free to contact any of the Organising Team.
