Inspired by new trends, they are dedicated to authentic classic brasserie dishes with a modern twist, using high quality produce at great prices. Côte is open early every day for breakfast, through to lunch and dinner. Its atmosphere is informal, friendly and highly welcoming.

There is a wealth of Jurys Inn hotels in central locations. Each one offers great value rates with warm and excellent friendly service. There are two Brighton-based hotels; in the City Centre, at Stroudley Road, and Brighton Waterfront at King’s Road. There are many spacious and well-lit rooms which are designed around the guests’ comfort. We’re grateful for their support.

With fantastic facilities, dedicated industry lecturers and speakers and a central location in a filmmakers’ city such as Brighton, their mission is to deliver practical courses and train the next generation of talented filmmakers wishing to enter the British film industry.
