How bloody rough does that pub look? They'll probably all get murdered anyway.

It's what us northerners call an "Earthy" pub.


When they've had a pint they'll move on to "The Worlds End" pub, being careful not to fall over the edge, if he's in

The go for something to eat at "Flat Planet Rock"

No picture (well I do have one but it might not get past the AO filter) but last weekend, whilst just pottering around on Saturday afternoon, I encountered* a gentleman, who was my actual namesake, save for a blindfold and a pair of scissors - just standing in the middle of a pedestrianised street. Maybe he lost a bet, or it was an advert for a festival show; I have no idea what it was about and did not want to get close enough to ask....

*not a euphimism.

I don’t know what’s best, “He was trying to impersonate a helicopter as he jumped off
He swung his lower region around in circles to re-create a 'helicopter'.” or "I was shocked, it's my first time in Brighton and It's a Tuesday.“ What’s it like on the weekend?

Probably best that I don't share those pictures....

I shall be in Brighton in Sunday. Picking up people at the end of the London-Brighton bike ride (I'm not doing it this year I remember the pain of last year. Ditchling Beacon, no thanks!)

Clothes will be worn and I won't be climbing all over the peir.

Need recommendations for late breakfast/lunch and beers while I wait for cyclists. Doesn't have to be Brighton but the sea breeze might be nice.

Cheers J

Be careful of the parking restrictions is my only advice.

“Listed as one of the Top 10 Pubs in the UK by GQ,“

Safe to say you won’t find me there*.

I had lunch there last year, really good. Didn't know it was on some 'best of' list, that actually turns me off it a bit.

And there's a car park near the sea front at the end of Hove Street South. King Alfred Car Park. (Considerate of him to provide one). Also there's a cafe a few doors up from the pub which I like: decent coffee and food. That's called the Sunshine Books, Art and Cafe.

OK, the Ginger, King Alfred's car park, the Sunshine Books Art etc - it's Brighton and Hove. They have a thing about names. It's not a reflection on the people, although some of them might be starkers.

More choice for me and my gastronomic tour of BnH!

Very forward thinking that King Alfred chappy, imagining the need for a car park before cars were even invented!!

I'm addressing the lunch part of the request.
First thing to say is that it is going to be busy, so if you decide that you want to stick to the seafront, it is likely that you are going to have to wait. Second thing to say, is that there are any number of ropey places where I would consider alternatives instead of eating there.

First up there's a place right opposite the Palace pier, it's a burgery / Harvester sort of place. It's not a place that I would choose to go to (which is why I can't remember its name "burger on the terraces?") but you will get filled up with food - it's likely to be rammed.

Oh so social on the seafront is OK, I am not sure if it does food.

Walkikng west
Buddies is OK - cheap and cheerful - they will do breakfast and lunch
I don't eat fish but The Regency restuaurant always looks busy.
The New Club, near the pier, is a favourite of mine. Good food and good drinks too, I was there last Sunday.

The Brighton Beach club has a great view (it's right on the seafront, near the west pier) but you pay for that. It used to be called Alfresco and did Italian food but I don't know what it does now.

If you go "inland", try Donatellos. It's Italian, caters for large parties without batting an eyelid and is reasonably priced.
There's also a number of restaurants on Ship Street: Jamie's Italian, Japanese, ASK, Mexican place, Browns is excellent. Ivy in the lanes looks a bit rubbish to me - it does Shepherd's pie.

If you want pubs, we'll be here all week.
Pubs I go to: The The Bath Arms (it has always been consistent), The Pump House is OK, as are the Black Horse, the Cricketers and the Seven Stars.
I avoid The Sussex.

Many thanks Starkers. Plenty to aim for.

Breakfast on the downs and beer in Brighton.

Happy days!

Didn't quite go as anticipated today!! Did find The Ginger Pig but parking nearby was none existant. So no breakfast. And the cost of parking

Tesco Express for some mini pork pies, scotch eggs, fruit and yogurts eaten in the car on the front in the wind.
