Preston Park Tavern

Preston Park Tavern is definitely a favourite of ours- not only is the atmosphere and décor warm, friendly and contemporary but the British food here is spot on. Everything on the menu really is mouth-watering.

Choose from British classics, such as char-grilled 8oz rump steak, herb-crusted free-range pork chop, hot smoked mackerel, and the list goes on! The puddings are equally as good, with lots of traditional favourites on offer, such as Bramley apple crumble with ice-cream, bread and butter pudding and Italian chocolate custard pot, and so on.

Whether you’re popping in for a quick bite (hand-cut chips anyone?) or a delicious evening meal (go on then, I’ll have the pan-roasted salmon fillet), Preston Park Tavern certainly won’t disappoint when it comes to British food. Almost forgot to mention the wine- a concise yet diverse list is offered and has been carefully selected to compliment your main meal. How thoughtful!

Main courses start from £10.50 on the evening menu, and £8.95 on the lunch menu. Children can eat for just £5.50, with desserts costing just £1.

Temptation is a lovely contemporary restaurant that is relatively new to Brighton’s famous North Laine. The quality of the food here hasn’t gone unnoticed either, with the restaurant’s chef, Oliver Derby, winning 2009/2010 Sussex Young Chef of the year.

The atmosphere here is friendly and welcoming and the service has always been great. Best of all, Temptation proudly uses locally sourced ingredients wherever possible-meaning your food is fresh, seasonal and great for the local community.

You can enjoy treats, such as warm red onion and Sussex goat’s cheese tart or a fine Angus steak sandwich sourced from Ditchling, or resist the temptation of a delightful weekend breakfast, such as lemon soufflé pancakes to eggs Florentine. If you have a sweet tooth, Temptation certainly won’t disappoint, with a variety of gorgeous homemade cakes on offer. You’ll be tempted to come back time and time again!

Main courses start from just £6.95. The breakfast menu (served all day) starts from just £2.95.
