The food is exceptional.
It's cafe prices. Their specials are the ones to make favourite. The soup is an odds on winner every time and anything away from the basics is worth trying - I had the best fishcakes I've ever had.
As a price guide the soup, coming with a whole warmed baguette, is £3.50.
It's all down to the Jamaican cook who uses some special ingredients (no not what you're thinking) to add a particular flavour. The Jamaican Plate was exceptional on Sunday!
Well worth trying - highly recommended.

It proved a decent tip - there was a jazz band playing in the Lounge Bar and Dining area, we had decent service and reasonably priced food. High teas were available. There were a couple of fly pasts at close range which was an unexpected treat. Cracking views up to Lancing College.
Open seven days 830am to 600pm - well worth a visit for something just a little different. Puts a whole new meaning to Terminal 3 when you seee it!

An update on the Bucket Cafe. Last week's visit ended in disappointment with the 'chef' having gone awol! Oh well it was good while it lasted.

The Regency Fish restaurant (by the old pier and the Regency car park) on the sea front for lunch today. Excellent Sea Bream for mrs gg, and Mr Chase enjoyed a lovely fillet of Hake. Two bottles of wine and all had starters - change from 'a ton.' Can't be bad.
Great morning racing as well. The kennel is getting into swing and 'Molly' showed plenty for the future - all heads turned as she was cheered home from her 'ping' by her human mum.

An endearingly bohemian joint serving very classy Thai food in a relaxed manner.
Priced for those that have backed a few losers, especially their lunchtime menu (12pm to 300pm). Evenings, from 6.00pm booking recommended.
Even if you're not too much of a fan because of the 'spice effect' (like me) give it a try as they have a number of dishes that are not hot but have wonderful flavours.
The Giggling Squid can be found in Church Road, Hove, just beyond Tescos - about five minutes by car from the Stadium
