A website tracking my attempt to publish my own book, "Brighton's Best Pubs". This is a locally produced guide to every pubs and bar in Brighton, the book is a comprehensive guide covering an amazing 300 pubs and bars within the city, utilising a unique pub rating system. Atmosphere, Beer, Barstaff, Food, Entertainment, Decor/Garden and Talent are all rated for each pub/bar. It also features maps, a Club guide and suggested pub crawls.

What a nice email we got....

"Bored on this Friday afternoon, willing the hours and minutes away until drinking time I thought I’d have a mooch on the net to see what’s new in Brighton and what can us girlies busy ourselves with this weekend…….

Came across your blog.

And what a fantastic blog it is. Although I started arse about face with the end being at the top I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it…

What a journey and experience it was to read. From the beginning part about the conception of the idea, the trial and tribulations (and the crawl of course!) that you and your ‘jurors’ have endured right through to the bit where your almost at break even point.

I am totally behind you on this quest. I do not think there is enough awareness about the pubs/bars etc in Brighton to do it a fair justice. All these boring ‘Best Pub in Sussex’ and ‘The South’s guide to Pubs’ crap is just not on for us youngsters who want to know what is cool, atmospheric and decent beer/vodka.

I think you have hit the nail on the head with this little belter of a book and I haven’t even read it!

Where to buy this little gem please??????



Well, our answer to Romany and anyone else interested is that you can currently get the book in Borders, Waterstones, City Books or on Amazon. If you want to buy it from a more friendly local shop (where we get more of a share of the money) then buy it from Custard in the Lanes (oppositte Font n Firkin) or in Dave's Books on Syndey St. Or in the Basketmakers or Hartington pubs. You can probably get it in other places too, but we've forgotten where!
