    Didn't get in there until around 7pm. Do they still make the kids pizza in a fish shape? Mine are too old now.
    I think it was, yes. It certainly wasn't as fish-y as previously though. I used to like the big doughy tail bits as invariably my son wouldn't eat them, which meant I could!

      Burger Brothers too for pre-match (perhaps following on from Mange Tout?), if you want something quick

      Some really positive disagreements emerging on this thread. For the record;

      I enjoyed Little Fish Market - service and food top notch, but I wouldn't be in a hurry to go back. It is all a bit too clinical for me, everything filleted, shelled and fussed over.
      By comparison a recent visit to Riddle and Finns, still has me drooling after the Singapore Crab, bloody fantastic dish if you roll your sleeves up use a napkin as a bib and don't care what you look like smothered in sauce.

      Sitting still for two hours plus in a restaurant, is not a big selling point for me. If I am not getting fidgety, I have often tired of overheard conversations from adjacent tables. Not only are fixed sitting times a modern fix for profitability, but also tightly packed tables.

      Some of my favourite spots include the kitchen counter tops in 64 Degrees and CinCin, where you can always add extra dishes, as you see something fantastic prepared in front of you. In both I prefer lunchtimes to evenings.

      Riddle and Finns I like, the seafood is fantastic, the drinks menu is good and the service is swift. Last week we had a terrific meal, but were in and out in about 45 minutes, then off to the Dome to see Kelly Jones. Not a cheap night out, but great for an occasional treat.

      Have you been to The Urchin? Great for rolling your sleeves up fun.

      No and not really sure why I haven't. Ticks a lot of boxes, so must get around to it.

      I haven't either, and it's on my 'to go' list.

      I lunched at the The Flint House in the new Hannington’s Lane last week (part of the Gingerman group).

      Didn’t really like it, not a patch on all the other Gingerman restaurants.

      They’re trying to be different in setting the menu as an English take on Tapas. But it’s all quite confusing and expensive for what it is. Not very well, they try to guide you to order a main (which is literally one item ... e.g. the fish itself) and you order a side to go with it e.g. broccoli with almonds or potatoes in tarragon. Nutritionally, you end up with a meal lacking either carbs, or fibre/veg. To order two side dishes to get that balance is expensive and far too big giving a lot of waste.

      There’s no clear structure of starters and mains.

      The dessert was gorgeous though.

      I did feel sorry for the people who took me there as their guest, a rip off and unsatisfying.

      So it seems that Wolfies cafe has changed hands and the owners of Billies have taken over. Was never that sold on Billies but there was always a queue at the Upper North Street location so they should do okay.

      The GLDHI and I are making a weekend of it in Brighton for the Burnley game. We’ve got Little Fish Market booked for the Saturday evening (going with someone off here - I’ll let him tell you who if he’s so inclined. I’d tell you myself but he can be a bit of a male version of a Princess. Someone else was also invited, but he declined, saying he has to wax his man sack).

      Anyway, I’m after recommendations for:

      Friday dinner
      Saturday (light breakfast, and light lunch; or brunch)
      Sunday (lunch or brunch)

      Not to include: fourth & Church (just been), Chilli Pickle (liked it, but didn’t think it was outstanding), Gingerman group - been to two, meh.

      It’d be nice to put an “ethnic” meal in there somewhere (Thai, Vietnamese, Indonesian...??)...

      ... and possibly somewhere where the GLDHI can get a Chilli fix. She has a completely ludicrously high tolerance level - quite happy nibbling on raw birdseye chillis as a snack. This last option is not essential, as my experience is that those places that offer a high Chilli index are usually shit in every other respect.
      Petit Pois and Etch would be good bets for dinner - neither hits the chilli fix though.

      Maybe for lunch 64 Degrees - everyone else seems to rave about it although I wasn't overly keen. Mrs W and I went there for lunch and then on to a spa. We were hungary pretty quickly after which I don't expect from a meal that costs that much. Although it might have been the spa activity that made us hungray.
