Brighton looks beautiful whatever the weather and even when its raining you should always hit the lanes.
We woke up and lazed for a little while before heading for the pier, there is something inside me that just makes me like a little kid as soon as I am near an arcade and any loose change in my purse suddenly vanishes.
Again as creatures of habit we headed back to JB’s diner for some lunch this time.
I was still super full from the night before and I suffer from eyes to big for my stomach so I had a hard time finishing mine but it was very delicious and they make a great cup of tea!
We stopped as is tradition to get some American candy from the vending machine before going off to the North Laines for a spot of shopping. If you like gift shops then the Laines are the best place to go plus plenty of coffee shops if you need a pick me up half way through.
We needed somewhere to go for dinner so I turned to my favourite place on the internet. Trip Advisor. They suggested The Coal Shed and as soon as I saw steak I was sold. We freshened up back at the hotel before heading out.
I know I know I should drink something other than a Gin&Tonic but when they have awesome mixes like they do at The Coal Shed I couldn’t resist. I started with the Plymouth Gin with Pink Peppercorns and Rosemary.
After being talked through the fantastic menu we chose the Porterhouse Sharing Steak, paired with Peppercorn Sauce for myself and Chimichurri for the Mr. We then also shared mash & gravy, beef dripping chips and broccoli with bacon and almonds. A delicious feast, I can’t even begin to describe how good it was; you’ll just have to go yourself to find out, all I will say is melt in the mouth.
We couldn’t resist having dessert – how many times have I said that on this blog. Especially when they taste as good as this one; Orange & Cardamon Parfait with Hazelnuts, Biscotti and Lemon Sherbert, the perfect mix of sweet and sharp to end your meal.
We rolled ourselves back to the hotel again and fell asleep dreaming of all the food we’d eaten.
