Review | Afternoon Tea at The Salt Room

The Salt Room has been a permanent fixture on Brighton seafront for two years now. It’s a successful second endeavour from the team behind The Coal Shed, highly esteemed steak restaurant on Boyce’s St. Unlike its sister restaurant, The Salt Room has a heavy focus on seafood, so their take on afternoon tea was bound to be a unique one. We stopped by yesterday afternoon to give it a try, here’s what went down. Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted by a delightfully sunny member of the front of house staff who checked our coats, told us how amazing everybody thinks the afternoon tea is and led us to our table (naturally lit with a sea view, an Instagrammer’s wet dream). A waiter soon appeared to offer us water, then let us get settled before returning to explain how the menu works. You can find a copy of the menu here.Β Essentially, the only two choices you’re making is which of the savoury options to omit (there are 5 and you’re allotted 4 – this …

Cheap Dates in Brighton – Lunch Time Wing Deal at The Joker

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 …

The Christmas Sandwich at The Joker

I’m on a mission this year to try as much of the Christmas food at Brighton’s independent joints as I can, and I fear I’ve peaked at my first sitting. Meet Orange Buffalo’s Christmas Sandwich. The Joker is without a doubt in my top 5 pubs to eat at. I’ve raved many a time about their chicken wings, more specifically their lunch time deal that gives you wings, curly fries and a beer for a tenner. It’s a little more on the expensive side than the places I usually drink at so I do tend to only come here for food, but boy is that food worth the extra pennies added to your pint. Naturally, therefore, when I saw on Instagram that they had a Christmas sandwich available from the end of November, I immediately made plans to go and try it. Never before have I seen a tray of food carried so carefully, this baby is precarious pre-squashdown. What you see before you encased in a bun is mayo, deep fried brie, chilli cranberry …
