There’s nothing quite like a new blog series to get me excited, and I’ve been wanting to kick this one off for quite some time. Review posts of food in Brighton always tend to go down well with you, but the reality is I just don’t have the disposable income to try out every new place as it opens. What I do have, though, is a bit of creativity when it comes to arranging a lovely day out centered around food for little to no money.
This series will bring you ideas for going out in Brighton and having a great time with your significant other, your friends or your family. It might not always be the cheapest date in the world (today’s, for example, is pricier than I might have wanted to start out with) but if it represents excellent value for money, it will be included. If you have suggestions or favourites that you want me to tell the world about, please don’t hesitate to leave me a comment or get in touch using the social media links at the bottom of this post.
The first installment: the lunch time deal at The Joker.
If you get down to The Joker between the hours of 12pm and 4pm on a week day, you can get yourself a basket of wings, some curly fries and a coke for £8 (make the drink alcoholic and it’s £10). For what you get, it’s an absolute bargain, and if you make sure you get the best seats in the house (see more below) the value for money increases. First, the wings..
They’re amazing. This isn’t the first time I’ve talked about them, and this probably isn’t the best picture I’ve ever taken of them. Check out my full review last year for better snaps and more info on the food. They’ve been consistently good since then, I recommend them all the time.
The tip I want to give you in this post is to make sure you get yourself sat in The Joker Express.
It’s a little train carriage tucked in the back of the pub, the doors slide closed and it’s the most perfect date destination. If you wanna get the best bang for your buck on this cheap date, drop them a tweet the day before you go down to reserve table 1.
I can’t wait to bring you more in this series, I have a bazillion ideas, but leave me more suggestions if there’s somewhere you want covered!
