It’s Time to Get Your Picnic On

Did you know that it was International Picnic Day on Sunday 18th June? Nope, I wouldn’t have done either if it weren’t for Tesco sliding into my inbox about it. Most food holidays pass me by pretty much unnoticed these days, but eating alfresco is something I’ve come to get really excited about in the last couple of months – as you’ll already know if you keep up to date with Happy Sunday – so I figured this was one worth writing about. Tesco have just launched a new mediterranean inspired Deli range consisting of lots of little bites that are edible both hot and cold, making them just about perfect for all of your picnicky needs. The Tesco team sent us a selection of their new treats – along with pretty much everything else we could possibly need for the perfect picnic – over the weekend so that I could bring you this little slice of fun in the sun. Eating outside is really good for you. I hear you, I’m a massive hippy …

The Warren is Back!

It’s Brighton Festival season, and already I’ve broken my heartfelt promise to myself that I would pay closer attention to the art and theatre of it all this year.

Who knows. Anyway, I’m piping up very briefly to let you in on the most joyous news that The Warren is back in action. The Warren is primarily a theatre venue, but acts as a gorgeous outdoor place to soak up Brighton Festival vibes from one of their two well-manned bars. I didn’t see any shows last year, and if I’m being honest, I probably won’t this year. However, The Warren will be seeing a lot of me. It’s …

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.ย 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 …
