The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Eat and drink

The Sussex countryside is dotted with pubs serving traditional meals, local ales and also (one of few places in the UK) local wines. These haunts are supplemented with newer restaurants and gastro-pubs serving modern british cuisine, often making the most of fresh seafood, in abundance on the South coast. And if it is seafood your after, then you won't feel short changed here; Sussex has a real range of experiences, from fine dining on oysters in the Michelin-starred Curlew Restaurant, to rustic fish and chips, from world famous Maggie's in Hastings. The cosy atmosphere of these local-feeling eateries could not be in more stark contrast to the vibrant centre of Brighton, a city with the greatest concentration of restaurants anywhere in the southeast outside of London. While Brighton is certainly home to some classy establishments, it also boasts a range of cheap bars and cafes that fight hard to attract the large student market with discount deals and drinks offers. The nightlife is hectic and busy throughout the year, while during the daytime there is a growing cafe culture as visitors relax with a coffee on the sea front.
