Dining at Bankers Fish and Chips

Dining at Bankers Fish and Chips

If you live around Brighton and Hove, it’s likely a few names will spring to mind at the mention of fish and chips – Bankers will be one of them. With the flagship restaurant just a stone’s throw (lols) from the beachfront, I’d never really […]

Veganuary (and Vegruary?) at Bill’s

Veganuary (and Vegruary?) at Bill’s

Officially entering its sixth year, Veganuary has come around once again. With more and more big brands jumping on the bandwagon to bring out dedicated vegan menus or products, it’s become a more attractive challenge than ever before – in fact, Veganuary predicted that this […]

Breakfast at Sugardough

Breakfast at Sugardough, Market Street Sugardough is a well-loved bakery and cafe based near the seafront in Hove. Despite its out-the-door-queue popularity, few know of its unique breakfast and all-day menus the Brighton cafe has to offer. Not just your run of the mill avo […]

The Coal Shed | One Tower Bridge

The Coal Shed | One Tower Bridge

The Coal Shed is probably my most recommended restaurant to those looking for a special dining experience. Loved not just by Brightonians, they’ve received accolades from the Observer Monthly Food Awards, Brighton’s Best Restaurants and praise across national publications. In the last year, I’ve booked […]

A Copper Christmas | The Copper Clam

A Copper Christmas | The Copper Clam

Nesting within the Regency Arches of Brighton seafront, you’ll find relative restaurant newcomer, The Copper Clam. The family owners opened their doors in the summer of 2016, offering freshly caught seafood, as well as local meat and vegetables. Having heard great things so far, I […]

Semola | A new fresh pasta restaurant

Semola | A new fresh pasta restaurant

There is often a slight sense of apprehension when a new Italian restaurant opens in Brighton & Hove. Once a city not so blessed with an authentic offering, the food scene has expanded dramatically and we now have gems such as Cin Cin, Fatto a […]

Introducing The Coffee Break, by Edendum

Hang on, Edendum… I’ve heard that name before, right? You have indeed, and the very same people have been working on something new – Introducing The Coffee Break, by Edendum. From their vision of creating more of a community hub within East Street, owners Diego and […]

TGI Fridays

TGI Fridays

Living in Brighton, I don’t often go out of my way to a chain restaurant; so I was a little apprehensive when TGI Fridays got in touch*. Growing up I never had a TGI near me, so when I finally went to one when I was […]

October Best x The Chilli Pickle

October Best x The Chilli Pickle

As part of Brighton’s October Best restaurant festival, The Chilli Pickle have created Al and D’s Toddy Shop. Based on the roadside drinking shacks in Kerala, the dish reflects some of South India’s best street food and nods to the popular palm wine. Enormous platters […]

LOST IN THE LANES | Nile St, Brighton

LOST IN THE LANES | Nile St, Brighton

After two and a half years, I still manage to take a wrong turn and get lost in Brighton’s twisting Lanes. Of course there are worse places to wander into, but I’ll often find myself passing through to get somewhere else. So I was pleased to […]

Curry Leaf Cafe

Curry Leaf Cafe

The majority of my friends and family will know that I grew up an incredibly fussy eater. The chicken nuggets kind of kid, that was me. But as I entered my mid-teens, I realised how much I was missing out. I was quite lucky then, when my […]

Pascere opens in Duke Street, Brighton

Pascere opens in Duke Street, Brighton

The Brighton food community has been all of a flutter once more with the anticipation of new restaurant, Pascere. In my short experience as a food blogger, it’s a funny thing being part of a food community. News explodes seemingly from out of nowhere, and […]

Pizza workshops at Franco Manca Brighton Marina

Pizza workshops at Franco Manca Brighton Marina

Master the art of sourdough pizza at Franco Manca! Franco Manca started life as a neighbourhood pizzeria in Brixton, London. You may remember, from my first review of Franco Manca when they opened in central Brighton last spring, that the establishment has undergone a swift upscale, growing […]

Mac Mondays | The Little Blue Smokehouse at Seven Stars

Mac Mondays | The Little Blue Smokehouse at Seven Stars

I only really discovered mac and cheese a couple of years ago. Since then it’s become a bit of an obsession, and something I definitely can’t resist when perusing a menu. What maniac can say no to a steaming bowl of pasta absolutely smothered in multiple cheeses? A crunchy breadcrumb topping? Maybe […]

Rust Roasts | Sunday Lunch at Cafe Rust

Rust Roasts | Sunday Lunch at Cafe Rust

Cafe Rust is one of those places I always meant to get around to visiting. Tucked in Preston Road, it sits in that strange part of town that actually hosts some of Brighton’s gems – think Señor Buddha, The Joker, Hare & Hounds and Fatto a Mano. […]

Afternoon Tea at The Salt Room

Afternoon Tea at The Salt Room

There has been a lot of buzz surrounding The Salt Room recently. Not only has the acclaimed seafood restaurant just celebrated its second birthday and been named in the Sunday Times Top 100, they also recently launched a rather unique Afternoon Tea experience. Yes you know, the […]

Doughbo

Doughbo

I wasn’t going to write a post about Doughbo because my photos are so dark. But a phrase popped into my head earlier – “something to write home about” – and I realised I absolutely had to mention them. Doughbo Episode I: In the beginning […]

Edendum | A Tasting Evening

Edendum | A Tasting Evening

You might remember my review of Edendum, a charming (and authentic) Italian in the heart of the Lanes. After a great first visit, I was super excited to be invited back for an evening of tasting. Pizza, prosecco and… more prosecco With Brandon in tow, I arrived to the familiar, […]

Cafe Chilli | Thai food in Brighton and Hove

Cafe Chilli | Thai food in Brighton and Hove

As we entered 2017, I began compiling a list of all the places I had yet to try around Brighton. One restaurant I’d continually heard great things about was Cafe Chilli, so of course it was on there. Well you can imagine my absolute delight when […]

Dizzy Gull at Brighton Beer Dispensary

Dizzy Gull at Brighton Beer Dispensary

I’ve not had the pleasure of trying many roasts in Brighton yet. Now I’ve acknowledged that, I’m just realising how weird that is. Although it may have something to do with the insane amount of brunch I eat on a Sunday instead, so swings and […]

Bus Stop

Bus Stop

I don’t often race off to write a review barely hours after eating, but I really need to tell you all about Bus Stop. Have you heard of Brighton’s latest addition? Straight in from Barbados, Bus Stop brings Caribbean home cooking and cocktails to the […]

Edendum

Edendum

Brighton is known amongst foodies for struggling to provide on the Italian food front. There are plenty of big names and independents around, but rarely any that deliver in authenticity.  Now, I won’t ever claim to be an expert in Italian food, but I know when a restaurant tries to […]

Burger Brothers

Burger Brothers

I’m late the the party, I know. If you live in Brighton, you’ll already know about Burger Brothers. Whether you’ve tried them or not, I daresay you know a cult fan or two. But the cult has grown. Now, I’m known amongst my friends for […]

Nu Posto Lunch Review

Nu Posto Lunch Review

Nu Posto opened last summer down the somewhat shady West Street area, with promises of authentic Neapolitan pizza. Finally, it seemed locals had a reason to venture down that end in the middle of the day and not just to get to the beach. First experience […]

Tom’s Food

Tom’s Food

Last weekend, we took a little trip to Cuckfield in West Sussex to visit Tom’s Food, a café restaurant that I’ve had my eye on since discovering it on Instagram a few months back. Tom’s Instagram is a collection of his foodie creations, supper clubs and life […]
