POLPO is a small, unassuming restaurant, situated at 20 New Road (near the Theatre Royal). It’s well-known for their share plates of incredible Venetian food, a beautifully relaxed vibe and extensive cocktail menu.
I’ve passed by a lot, but never had the chance to stop and go in, until now.
I’ve written about this before; every month or so me and my friend, Rachael, head out and do something super fun together! After going to The Parlour in Arundel a few months ago with some friends, Skarlett’s Cafe in Battle popped up as a recommendation and, as Rachael and I both love food, it was the perfect idea!
Hard to believe we’re now halfway through the year, isn’t it? This month has gone pretty slowly for me, what about you? I think my biggest thing of June was my back problem.
To be honest, there’s nothing more exciting than being invited for food, especially when it happens to be at the newly opened The Ivy In The Lanes*, in Ship Street, Brighton. I’ve seen a few pics from the opening night and I couldn’t wait to go and see it for myself!!
A few months ago, Rosie, Katie and myself were discussing ideas on where to go after we’d had our fun day out at Wood’s in Worthing. We knew that we definitely wanted something food related and somewhere pretty for loads of cute outfit shots!!
I rarely venture out as far as Hove for food, despite knowing there are some absolute gems when it comes to great places to eat with Instagrammable décor, mostly because it’s almost an hour away by bus for me and I’m pretty lazy! But, when Sammy, Jess, Tania and I were chatting about meeting up for brunch, I was happy to let them choose somewhere to go, because I know they know all the best spots! Sammy suggested Hixon Green so we made a plan to meet up.
Well, I finally made it to Southampton to see Alice and Joshua 😀 I also got a fab surprise in the form of Emily, Alice’s sister!! I follow her on social media and have chatted to her for ages, so it was lovely to finally meet!!
A couple of days ago, I met up with my friends Rachael and Abi for a very long overdue catch-up!! The last time we hung out together was back in August!!
I’ve been really hankering for some good Thai food, so we decided we were going to go along to Street Thai (in Brighton Square, which is in The Lanes); I’ve been before and absolutely loved it!
I can’t believe it was November 2016 when I attended the launch of Cin Cin in Vine Street! It was such a lovely, fun evening and the food was absolutely perfect!
I was so excited when I learnt late last year that they were going to be opening another restaurant at 60 Western Road in Hove (right near Palmeira Square.)
Recently I finally got to meet Violet, Lyndsay‘s beautiful little girl. I can’t believe she’s six months old already!! We decided we were going to meet up over brunch, so what better place to do it than the new and improved Redroaster at the bottom of St James’ Street?
