Unique setting

Housed in a reconstructed 1866 West Pier toll booth; one of a pair that was returned to the seafront as part of the Brighton i360 site, this iconic structure is now home to a cosy café and its suntrap terrace.  Read more about the building’s fascinating history here.

As a fully licensed café, serving coffees, pastries, light bites and cocktails, the Tollbooth Café & Bar is the perfect spot to watch the comings and goings on the promenade and beach below.  See a sample menu here.
