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…

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…

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…

Review: Pitschi the kitten with dreams at Starboard Festival

Last Saturday we spent a lovely morning at the Brighton Open Air Theatre (or BOAT) watching Pitschi which was one of the performances happening throughout the fortnight long Starboard Festival.

Days out: Brighton Sealife Centre

Last Friday Athena and Arlo had an underwater adventure at Brighton’s Sealife Centre. It’s somewhere that I’d been before but not for a long time, and quite often it was for networking events in my old job (wonderful to walk round with a glass of wine but just as lovely with two small excited children and their Nan!) and a…

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…

Eating out: Yo! Sushi – Brighton

On Sunday I had a leisurely lunch at YO! Sushi in Brighton. I took my friend Katie and we probably weren’t the ideal diners for a sushi restaurant; neither of us eat seafood and Katie is a vegetarian. However we both left comfortably full having found loads of different dishes to scoff, way more selection than I thought there would…
