We didn't stay at the hotel but we did book a table for dinner. All I can say was that this was one of the nicest meals I've ever had. I enjoy good food and this was absolutely delicious. My starter of quail was scrumptious and my partner enjoyed his gnocchi (which I felt could have been a little bigger in portion). The mains of beef, which I was told was some of the most tender he has ever had, and the rabbit I had went down extremely well! The puddings were both very tasty and presented nicely. On top of what you ordered, the extra little bits of food - parmesan and bacon brioche, mint and pea soup served in a tea cup and the mandarin (not quite sure what it was called but it was like a paste) all added to the enjoyment of the meal.
Being a small venue the atmosphere is intimate and relaxing. The waitress was perfectly attentive but unobtrusive - something which I feel many places get wrong. If you are staying in Brighton and fancy treating yourself or someone else to a truly wonderful meal then take them to Drakes. It's not cheap but it's worth every penny!
