Dougbo at The Windmill

Review | Doughbo at The Windmill

Doughbo have left The Hobgoblin. For a couple of years they were in residence at one of my nearest and dearest boozers and despite my having initially been heartbroken that they were replacing The Troll’s Pantry, they quickly won me over with their delicious balls. Therefore, I wasted no time in following them to their new home at The Windmill a bit further into town – and found a new favourite early Friday drinking spot in the process.. Last Friday we found ourselves in town during a miraculously sunny window on a late September afternoon and it felt like the perfect moment to scope out Doughbo’s new place. Head up the road to the left of Argos and you should see it straight ahead, tucked away behind Western Road. When we wandered up to the bar, my eyes landed immediately on the sign pictured above and I knew we were among friends. £3 for a glass of Prosecco in a Brighton pub? On a Friday? Sign me up. The lady behind the bar asked us …

Review | Purezza, Brighton’s Vegan Pizzeria

In January of last year, I reviewed a brand new vegan pizzeria that had recently set up shop on St. James Street. They were starting out strong and just beginning to make a name for themselves in the local plant based community. Fast forward almost two years and I’ve popped in to see what’s new..   My, how things have changed. First, the interiors. You can’t see the way this place was originally decked out in my first review because I went through Deliveroo, but this is a vast improvement. The illustrations on the walls and menus are stunning, the pizza paddles and pizza cutters dotted about the place and greenery in between booths are both lovely touches and the colour scheme is to die for. It’s a beautiful, well lit venue to while away a couple of hours in. The other point I must touch on before we discuss the food is their popularity.

Cheap Dates in Brighton | 2-4-1 Burgers at Little Blue Smokehouse @ The Southover

Update: heartbreakingly, Little Blue Smoke are no longer operating at The Southover, so this deal is no longer applicable – you can find them at Hare and Hounds! Brighton is fast becoming London 2.0, whether we like it or not. That means that date night is getting more expenive by the day, and it can be tricky to keep up. I’m all about a bargain, and I’ve made it my mission to find you the best deals in town so that you don’t have to bankrupt yourself to hang with your other half. The only rule is that the date can only cost a maximum of £10 per head, the rest is all to play for. I’ve featured Little Blue Smokehouse previously on this here corner of the internet back when I was all excited over their PB&J fries at their Seven Stars residence. They’re now a permanent fixture at The Southover, which is not quite as accessible if you’re coming in from out of town (it’s up in the residential area of Hanover) but …
