Brighton: 5 Favourite Restaurants

When it comes to eating out, we like to do it right.  This is mostly because we hardly ever get any time alone, but also because life is short, and you’ve got to savour all the flavours.  We’re lucky to have Brighton on our doorstep; a city with hundreds of interesting and delicious options for dining out, but it didn’t make it easy to compile this top five favourite restaurants list! So without further ado you should definitely find time to visit these 5 restaurants…   Burger Brothers     When you’re in need of a proper mountain of aburger there’s no better place in Brighton than Burger Brothers.  The laid back atmosphere is complete with chalkboard menus and high bar stools, but don’t let the hipster décor fool you,  each…

Brighton: Skyfall Restaurant in Hove – a Review

Skyfall restaurant is the perfect place for a chilled out date, delicious food, great cocktails and a relaxed atmosphere in a central Hove location, and it was where we spent our Saturday night, and perfect timing for being asked to review a restaurant as it was Sam’s birthday!  It was a super cold evening but we were cosy inside, comfy on squishy chairs and seated by the window; perfect for people watching and checking out the slight sleet that was falling, and generally having a wonderful date night! The decor is subtle but impressive, with filament lightbulbs, muted coloured tiled walls and wooden accents. Skyfall (which is on Church Road – a 20 minute walk from central Brighton) has a set menu that changes with the seasons, plus a specials board…

Brighton: Afternoon Tea at The Jetty

The Jetty is a new restaurant on Brighton’s seafront, in the Brighton Harbour Hotel & Spa. It’s not been open for long so hasn’t seen a sunny Summer, but I know it will be the perfect place for a post seaside stroll drink or dinner. Spacious and bright with carefully chosen decor it’s a far cry from how it looked in its previous guise! We went for Afternoon Tea last week, and were seated on squishy sofas in the raised and secluded ‘nook’ area. The Harbour High Tea is a delightful selection of savoury and sweet delights, curiously filling for things that are so delicate looking! Each High Tea comes with a bottomless selection of tea from a vast Tea Pigs selection, which I made the most of! Athena had…

Brighton: MEATliquor does Veggie

Last weekend I had a pre-birthday meal with one of my loveliest friends at MEATliquor. It’s somewhere I’ve eaten a few times before and never fail to enjoy it, as long as I’ve not eaten much earlier in the day! I love the serving style: everything arrives on a big tray and you shove a bit of kitchen towel in your collar, and dig in, no plates needed! In an ideal world you’ll share your food with your friends and pick at whatever takes your fancy, that’s what I always do when I eat there anyway! The decor is loud, graffiti inspired with neon lights, which makes for a fun atmosphere but not so good for taking photos…

Restaurant Review: The Chequers Inn, Slaugham

The Chequers Inn in Slaugham opened a couple of months ago under new management, and will have accommodation available within a few weeks too. It’s located just north of Haywards Heath in a really picturesque little village. We visited for Sunday Roast last weekend and we’re seated in the covered conservatory area overlooking the garden and a sweeping field surrounded by woods. It’s about a 35 minute drive from Brighton, and perfectly placed for a post sunday-stroll meal as there are lots of woodland walks to explore around the area.

Restaurant Review: Asia de Cuba at St Martins Lane Hotel, London

If you’d have told me that a fusion of Asian and Latin flavours would work well together I would have been dubious, but when Bookatable offered to treat us to a meal in London when we were up for the day the intrigue was too much and we booked at Asia de Cuba, located in the St Martins Lane hotel in Covent Garden. The decor in the restaurant is stunning, huge circular columns covered in books, or picture frames and delightfully huge mirrors leaning against the walls. It was a shame we had the little people with us as it would have been the perfect place to consume cocktails and wine in on a date night, but hey ho!

Eating out: Wahaca Brighton

After what seems like months since I knew Wahaca was arriving in Brighton I finally got to enjoy a meal there last night and boy was it worth the wait! I’m a huge fan of Mexican food although I don’t like really spicy things I find that most Mexican dishes combine so many different flavours that my reluctance to try really spicy things doesn’t matter!
