There’s one word that comes to mind when we think of Kindling, and that is ‘delightful’. This place is an excellent shout if you’re looking for somewhere to have a fancy lunch, a foliage-filled Brighton date, or to eat a Saddlescombe mutton burger that will have you cursing every sad Big Mac you’ve allowed to touch your brioche-loving lips. It's a light and airy modern European small plates restaurant near the seafront run by an ex-St. John chef, and as you might expect with this kind of heritage, it's all about quality produce. Though the menu changes regularly, you can expect dishes like smoked tomato salad, exceptional seafood, and tarted-up vegetables complete with crispy chickpeas. See, delightful.
