Hove Place Bistro Pub & Gardens

IMG_9581I was definitely not expecting to find this little gem on a side street off Church Road. Yes, the first time I went to Hove Place was totally by chance and I definitely don’t regret it!  I’ve been there more times now and to say it’s amazing is an understatement.

Before I go over why I think it’s so good I want to apologise for the low quality pictures but it was quite dark and my camera has gone funny lately (if anyone is a Canon pro and can help me with aperture – contact me!).

So, back to Hove Place. This pub actually doesn’t feel like a pub at all and has an amazing bistro feel. The music is also very pleasant and the staff is extremely friendly.

Breakfast at Cafe Motu

IMG_9082Today I woke up craving an English breakfast.

I know, I know. Fry-ups are totally unhealthy and very against my 2016 healthy eating goal. I really wanted eggs though. And bacon…I really felt like eating bacon. It doesn’t help that my fella is as much of a food lover as I am (can I blame it on him please??).

Anyway, we finally managed to roll out of bed and head to town with our friend. The sun was out so I took a few shots in the Lanes, one of my favourite places in Brighton. Continue reading

Greenberry Cafe, London

greeberrycafe1Yesterday I decided to spend the day in London and try out a cafe I’ve heard very good things about – the Greenberry Cafe, right in the heart of Primrose hill. I have to say I wasn’t disappointed and even though we had to walk for what seemed like an eternity in the rain (it was more like 15 minutes but it seemed like so much more I swear) it was worth it.

First things first, when we got to London the sun was shining and (of course) we couldn’t resist taking some cliche pictures, even though I’ve been to London a billion times. London is always London though and you know how much I love photos.

Afternoon tea in Terre a Terre

IMG_7656I think it’s safe to say I love anything that involves cake, tarts, muffins or anything sweet. Well today I decided to try out Terre a Terre’s afternoon tea with the lovely Jordan from Just Jawwie.

The one thing that beats having afternoon tea is having afternoon tea with a fellow blogger! That awkward feeling you might get when taking loads of pictures in a cafe simply vanishes when there’s two of you doing it! Thank you Jordan *.*

So, Terre a Terre – it was created in 1993 and is now one of the most successful vegetarian restaurants in the UK. It’s very welcoming and cozy and besides their delicious meals and tea they offer a full range of products you can buy like jams, nibbles, chutneys, etc.

Saturday lunch out: Bill’s restaurant

bills2

It’s a beautiful sunny Saturday once again in Brighton and a nice meal out was all I wanted!

I know most people in the UK know Bill’s because it’s everywhere but it’s definitely one of my favourite restaurants because of its nice cozy feel and the friendliest of staffs (I don’t know if I’m always lucky when I go there but the truth is they have all been lovely!). Even though Bill’s is a chain, they manage to give their restaurants a wonderful homely feel which I think is great. It is also a grocery shop (which makes it even cuter) and is decorated with beautiful wooden chairs and tables that gives the whole place a nice rustic look.
