Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We found this pub online after looking for gluten free fish and chips, so glad we went it was a lovely sized portion and delicious. We also had some lovely spritz drinks and the service was very friendly too.

We received a very warm welcome from Jess as we walked through the front door of the Earth and Stars even though unfortunately she had lost all power to the beer taps! Jess reassured us that there was bottled beers and wine available and a...great choice of food She welcomed our cockerpoo Ruby providing a bowl of water almost immediately We decided on the Burger and the Caesar salad which were both very tasty and homemade Jess was very chatty and provided a great service despite the obvious stress of not having any keg beers available We would have no hesitation in recommending the Earth and Stars and will visit again when we return to BrightonMore

My wife and I went to Earth and Stars recently while on vacation in Brighton. Located in The Lanes area which has lot of shops and restaurants. The restaurant is nice and airy with a funky type vibe. Large bar area with good selection of...beer and wine. I had fish and chips and it was choice. My wife had chickpeas dish and another tasty one. Great service and easy going vibe. Highly recommend.More

Visited on a Thursday evening. Booked a table, we waited over 50 minutes for our meals which when they arrived were not great- Fish and chips and Lamb burger. Fish was over cooked and burger very salty… best bit were the truffle fries.

Really loved our lunch on Friday at the Earth and Stars. The food was excellent, our group had the chickpea curry, fish and chips and I had the best steak ever. Would definitely return for another visit. The staff was stretched but showed good humour...throughout our visit. Had a nose at the refurb post the Interior Design Master show, I loved the colours and the deco.More

This pub was recommended to us, and didn’t fail. Had the obligatory fish and chips in Brighton. Nice little pub, family owned. Food was fresh and hot. Crispy batter on fish, not so sure about the mushy peas (being an aussie , wasn’t expecting that)

Food: Sunday lunch, we chose the beef rib to share at £28 with parsnips, Yorkshire pudding, carrots, red cabbage and kale. We also had some pigs in blankets for £6 extra. The food was impeccable, loads of meat, soft and tasty, full of flavour and...extra gravy. Yorkie pud was crunchy and huge. Veges were cooked to perfection, especially the red cabbage, one of my faves. Gravy was thick and properly made. Gorgeous. So why four stars? Service. It was slow and awkward. It took a while to get a seat even though I'd booked well in advance. Then it took a long while to get drinks. Food took an age to arrive, and we weren't offered salt, pepper or sauce or more drinks. Plates weren't cleared and we had to wait a while to get any attention for the bill. So, there's the one star loss. Sad, because this should be 5*. The pub is gorgeous, cosy, comfy and it has some lovely ales including the hazy pale. Brighton prices at £9 for large wine and £6 for a pint. The loos are on the ground floor, but are tiny if you're in a chair you can't get in. O could barely shut the door because I couldn't stand on one leg to shut the door... It is so tiny. I would absolutely go again though, just for the food! Yum. Step free entry. There is seating upstairs I believe so ask for downstairs seating if you're less able.More

So glad that Earth & Stars is still around and doing great, locally sourced food. The food is generally always good. The staff work hard and the prices are reasonable. Sometimes the food isn't as hot as it could be when it comes out (but...coming from a different floor on a cold night with staff having to squeeze between punters to get the food to you, that makes sense). The hispi cabbage is seriously amazing! The steak is great. The veg burger is outstanding. The brisket / arancini / little balls are great. I've not had the roasts but my friends say good things about them. The bar staff are friendly and work really hard. Visit. Try the food. Enjoy.More

This is a pub hidden from the tourists with probably the best Sunday lunch (slow cooked beef) in years ! It’s a must if you come to Brighton. The stuff is very friendly and the wine selection great - San Giovese!

We chose The Earth & Stars as we had the dog with us and needed somewhere dog friendly. The reviews were great and they didn't disappoint. Lovely atmosphere, nice beer and a decent choice of wine. We all had the bavette steak which was cooked...perfectly. The sides were great particularly the tempura veg which were nice a crispy. Overall a great meal and reasonably priced. The chef is, we were told, finding his feet. We will be back.More
