    Visited The Original Patty Men in Birmingham before the game yesterday. Thankfully that was much better than the match. Great burgers with a great selection of beers - mainly Siren and Magic Rock but a few others as well. Good service, friendly staff. We were lucky to get a table as it filled up just after we arrived and it is only a small place but looks like they are extending into the next railway arch.

    And pretend that I am Kendo Nagasaki

      Good to catch up yesterday. My usual, and highly recommended, restaurant Al Frash doesn’t open for lunch so we went here pre-match http://shababs.co.uk. Very good and reasonably priced. Post match was here https://cherryreds.com for a couple of cask ales and take outs for the train; a lovely place I’m getting to know a lot.

      Enjoyed a visit to Polpo last week. May have slightly over ordered as their 'small dishes' are not quite as small as I remembered. Highlights were scallops with butternut squash, chicken Milanesa and the ever excellent meatballs. Polpo are offering 20% in January off if you join their mailing list which makes it pretty good value especially as this applies to drinks as well as food.

      Also finally went to The Set on Friday - really enjoyed the food - we tried two of three menus (£42/£44) without the wine pairing. A lot to eat especially with all the additional snacks - really enjoyed a mixed carrot dish, belly pork and the squid. Less sure about the partridge, although the black pudding was good, Excellent dessert and the obligatory espresso martini. Not as good as Etch in my view but quite a bit cheaper.

      Looking for somewhere in the East Sussex countryside for next Sunday that is NOT a roast, repeat NOT a roast.
      Well I ended up in the Coach and Horses at Danehill for a mixed bag, which was mostly good.

      In a beautiful setting and undoubtedly packed during the summer this place is a destination pub that serves decent food on Sundays with more variation than most. To start I had fried macaroni cheese with cauliflower puree and pickled shimeji mushrooms, this was the low point, it was bland and cost a fair whack at 6.50 for not much flavour. The missus had squid and mussels on toast which was much better, full of flavour but possibly still on the keen side of pricing for it's size. The mains were great, liver and bacon for me and pork belly roast for the missus. The vegetables were fresh and had a lot of butter thrown at them which I like and the liver was cooked skillfully. Others reported the beef was very good so all round nicely done. Mains are about £15 which I can get along with I suppose.

      Overall worth a visit if in the area (Sheffield Park up the road), certainly if you’re not a roast person as they have 7 starters and about the same number of mains. Price tag isn’t cheap but you‘ll get much worse food for more than this in some Brighton pubs, £115 quid for 4 people having starters, mains, 4 booze drinks and two soft drinks. Good pub, great setting.

      Ps Harveys and Longman Best both available and a decent looking wine list.

      7.5/10

      Ha. We managed to make it along to Al Frash, as we stayed over. It was as good as we had remembered, and really good value, although it was a good deal emptier than last time we were in. We also spent a lot of time in The Wellington which has become our fixture pub when going to Birmingham.

      Going to the Regency next weekend. This is not your uber-trendy Brighton eatery but is supposed to be pretty good and reasonably priced for fish, any recommend dishes?
      Report back from The Regency.....luckily we'd booked because the place was absolutely rammed and at one point a queue even developed. We had the seafood platter extravaganza which at first glance seemed expensive at £47 per couple until you realised what it included: a whole lobster thermidor, 6 oysters parmegiano, 6 king clams cooked in their shells in garlic butter, a delicious big bowl of moule marinier, baby clams cooked in a white wine and garlic sauce, six king prawns in their shells, etc etc - all beautifully cooked and washed down with a very reasonably priced New Zealand Sauvignon. Highly recommended. It ain't posh, just good honest seafood well cooked and reasonably priced.
