NEW TO MY WARDROBE

The Sunday Post: Escaping From Brighton

Last weekend things started to look rather spring-like across the south east. Whilst the world and his wife flocked in to Brighton, Josh and I headed out of town in search of somewhere a little quieter (but still picturesque). We boarded our early morning train to Lewes, and wandered through the cobbled street, chattering away and admiring the views (there were a lot of hills that we walked up), before crossing the bridge and heading to the original Bill's for breakfast. I had high hopes!

I'm not the biggest fan of the Bill's in Brighton, the service can be sloppy, no one ever wants to take your order or money and the food is often overdone (however the Covent Garden branch gets my thumbs up for great service and food). The original brand in Lewes is spacious, packed full of family sized tables (things to consider if you're a two-some) and does some awesome pancakes. Josh had the breakfast which was so delicious (order regret on my part) with a green juice on the side.

The staff were super friendly, but as usual there was the issue of not serving us after we'd eaten - I've never had a chain so reluctant to take my money like this one! However it's definitely a branch I'd choose to go back to over my local one. Sorry Brighton...

After lunch we wandered through the village, and up some more hills, before making our way home via the towns picture perfect station - it's just so pretty!

Keep your eyes peeled for a few more snaps from our little village escape come Wednesday - there may or may not be outfit photos...

  12. I'm so glad you've noticed the wait with Bill's to! Me and my friend have visited two different chians - and both have made us wait 20 minutes - half an hour to take our money. Lovely post though Suzie, very relaxing.

  38. Absolutely stunning photos, the food looks so good (although thumbs down for not ace service). I don't think there's a Bill's too close to me, I might have to go exploring for something similar!
