What we're about

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

To join the group we request a recent photo, a few words of introduction and your participation in an event. We welcome new members who may live or work here or who join whilst they are on a short visit to Brighton on holiday or for business purposes.

Your suggestions for new dining venues are very welcome, as we are keen to uncover hidden gems.
