4 Church St, Brighton, East Sussex BN1 1UJ
I had one of my 3 monthly/seasonal meet-ups with my great friend AR this evening. We meet up in Brighton to have a long chat over fish and chips and a few non-alcoholic beverages. The reason for the lack of alcohol is due to the fact we both have to drive to get there.
We met up at around 6:30pm and, after a long stroll along the beachfront breathing in the bracing sea air and absorbing the best UV rays our local star has to offer us, we called into the Palm Court restaurant on the Pier. This is an old haunt of ours and we have spent many an evening in here supping on their very nice cod and fish supper, with obligatory mushy peas and pickles.
After finishing our sumptuous meal we took a stroll around town, taking in the sights and soaking up the ambience before heading to our usual drinking hole, the William the Fourth.
This is very much a traditional old pub in many senses of the word. It has a cozy bar, is divided into two sections and has many nice tables to sit at, including some that are in demi-booths for added group privacy. It is a relatively quiet pub, and most of the patrons go in there to talk!
They have a good array of the usual pub beers both on tap and in bottles, but they do also offer five real ales. Unfortunately I was unable to sample any of the fare on offer (although I have on previous visits to Brighton when I have either not had to drive or gone by train and, indeed, for the short time I lived there whilst working a short contract).
Beers drunk on this vist:
1) Blue (0%), Beck's, Germany - a non-alcoholic lager beer
