Highlights: England

For the last couple of years, every time I come home I end up going to new places in West Sussex. Marie has taken me. Mum has taken me. I’ve taken myself. I know it neighbours Surrey but it’s a bit bonkers. Anyway, some more places that I enjoyed on this trip back, in West Sussex…

Paskins Hotel, Brighton
Great hotel just east of Brighton town and the pier. One of the old laneway / side street hotels (I’ve always wanted to see inside one of those!). The lanes, shops, area around is cosy and interesting. Stylish but undeniably small rooms. Awesome brekkie; worth going just for the homemade veggie fritters with corn sauce.

Golden Galleon, Seaford
This is on the scenic route Brighton to Eastbourne, near Beachy Head. It’s an amazing spot, SO beautiful. Views over rolling hills, rivers, white cliffs in the distance. I wouldn’t go back for the food or the service but the location is fabulous. And if you park there you can do heaps of walks around the area.

The Wiremill, East Grinsted
Tucked away on the A22 heading north out of East Grinsted, we flew past it and I reckon everyone must the first time! Superb location though: on the edge of a lake, peaceful, perfect at dusk, I think I started birdwatching… Also gorgeous inside. The menu is outstanding (although I didn’t sample anything, next time). All sourced from within a 20 mile radius of the pub. Vego options were 5+ and didn’t include pasta or risotto, hurrah. The wine list was cracking and lots by the glass. The staff were lovely, and good looking. The best pub I have been to in years…
