Twisted Lemon is a true hidden treasure of Brighton! Tucked away down a tiny little lane, unknown to many, it's cosy but quaint, with drinks that will not fail to impress.
Having only ever been here for cocktails, I cannot comment on the food, but the selection and quality of the drinks is wonderful! The bartenders and friendly and accommodating and seem to know their way around the menu, making drinks with ease and flair. The concoctions are tasty and fresh, with just the right amount of alcohol.
In terms of pricing, if you go during their happy hour the cocktail prices simply cannot be beaten. That being said, the prices are also extremely reasonable outside of this, at around £6 a cocktail, so it's worth a visit whatever the time!
The only downfall of the place is that it is small and often a little cramped, so if you're looking for ample space or don't fancy cosying up to a stranger then this might not be the place for you. Bear in mind though that there is an upstairs seating area that some don't know about and in the summer there's also a lovely (but equally tiny) outdoor area to sit and enjoy a sunny evening, cocktail in hand.
Not bad at all!! Very reasonable menu prices. Great selection of cocktails available, at fair prices.
you could easily miss this bar, as it's tucked away through a very narrow Yellow alley.
If you can see Oasis and Pretty Green shops.you're very close
Twisted Lemon is cool restaurant tucked away in a narrow alley in the South Lanes. Their prices here are reasonable and food is generally good and tasty. I think this would be a great place to check out when struggling to find a restaurant for lunch!
I'm not going to do a full review today as I haven't yet sampled the food, having only dropped in for a bottle of beer just after the opening night. However - I'm very excited! Opened on the site of the much loved, and much missed, Blind Lemon Alley, the Twisted Lemon is hoping to rejuvenate this fab lil corner of Brighton, offering a twist (ta-da!) on the standard bar/grill/cocktail concept.
The new owners were very friendly and very patient about the endless mentions of the restaurant's previous incarnation! They were offering a limited menu the night we were there, including ribs (which looked amazing) and burgers. The cocktails looked well worth staying for, but we passed as we weren't eating. I know - how sensible???
They have big plans for the place, not least extending the menu and the opening hours but, even as it stands, the Twisted Lemon is worth a squeeze.
I didn't actually realise that this was a restaurant - which now explains the strangely out of place restaurant tables and chairs in what we thought was a bar. The major plus point of this place (as a bar) is the cocktail prices. £4.50 during happy hour (end at 9pm Sun-Fri). Even their (90+) standard cocktails are priced around £6.50. Great for a few drinks before a night out. Two cute little patios for smoking. Tiny little place, with room for about 50 people upstairs and downstairs. Music and atmosphere was bland; but if it is a restaurant, I understand it now. One of the barmaids (blonde) was charismatic and helpful. Recommended for a quick cocktail or two!
