Petit Pois


You’ll find all the Gallic classics here, from garlicky snails to crisp frogs’ legs goujons, but it’s the elevated kitchen table favourites that deserve your attention at this understated Brighton Lanes bistro. Step under the sign of le coq on Ship Street, to uncover provincial French cooking at its best, from creamy artichoke barigoule to a standout guinea fowl casserole brimming with the earthy flavours of white truffle, mushrooms and lardons. Finish with a trio of crème brûlée and, for a very French finale, a selection of cheese picked from the regularly changing list.
