Kids Eating Out

  • Chic sleeps and Sunday roasts at Rathfinny Wine Estate

    Ever keeled over on a settee hugging a bottle of Pinot Noir? No, me neither <cough>. Anyway, here’s a much more sophisticated way to sleep with wine. Rathfinny vineyard perched in the South Downs has some gorgeous cosy-yet-stylish accommodation in the Flint Barns on site. It’s perfect for either a house party or a rejuvinating […]

  • Funky new Brighton cafe

    I’m not saying I’m a jinx but my two favourite Brighton & Hove cafes have closed in the last year.

    • A big fat new pizzeria for Brighton’s London Road

      “I can’t believe I’m eating on London Road”, my husband kept saying. He remembers it from the days it was a druggy hangout. My own inauspicious introduction to the thoroughfare was when I came down from London to see comedian Terry Garoghan of Brighton the Musical fame. He sang: “You need some food, you need some […]
