Birdcage Walk, Brighton
The Birdcage Walk has recently taken over from the Tin Drum in the ever increasingly fashionable area of Fiveways. The decor is old school library, with bookshelves full of reading material and wooden tables and chairs. The ambience is very pleasant in the evening with fresh flowers on the table and candles being lit as the sun goes down. The plus points are the excellent manageress who works there with her extremely professional and welcoming - but not cloying - manner. The place is very friendly and comfortable. The atmosphere is relaxed and not once have we felt rushed to leave. The music is also really enjoyable and not intrusive. The main negative point is the extremely expensive food, in light of the size of the portions. We were charged £1.75 for two small pieces of French bread with a little oil. They would really benefit from having some cheaper wines, particularly in the current economic climate. It can also get quite noisy at lunchtime as it is family friendly but with little or no toys or games to keep the children occupied. In summary, a nice relaxing place to enjoy a bottle of wine with a friend in an intimate setting before going into town for a better deal to eat - or eat before you go.
