    Chestertons, Ditchling: Wonderful food and a coffee shop

    by sourbugger Updated Mar 29, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lying in the lovely little village of Ditchling, 'Chestertons' is one of the best food shops I've ever seen. All manner of local breads, meats cheeses, pates, jams and what-not compete for space against the more mundane items.

    The place was so well arranged and displayed it seems a pity to take stuff to the counter.

    They also have a small coffee shop area and a high-walled garden with a few tables as well.

    I enjoyed a very plesant morning sausage bap there with some good strong coffee. The owner even undercharged me as she claimed I had not been given enough sausage in my bap by the staff. Can't say that I had noticed.

    For a quality picnic, this just has to be the place to stock up !

    Almost forgot - great olives.

    UPDATE 2014 : seems to have closed, in part due to rather silly reviewers who want everything to be bubble wrapped, sanitized and standardised.

  • Amazing shops in North Laine

    by Sah12 Written May 2, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: Brighton is a fantastic city to go shopping: you can find everything! Usual clothes' shops, books' shop, candies' shop, etc. But what makes it special is North Laine's shops!
    If you walk in its streets you find small, ethnic, exotic and funky shops: it's like the hippies' homeland and it's cheaper than other shops.
    It's an amazing show to see, so even if you don't like this kind of style, I suggest you to go there for a walk at least. You won't be unsatisfied!

  • Poundland: Everything only for one pound...superb :-D

    by Thanusha Written Apr 10, 2013

    First of all the name "Poundland" invites you to go inside an have a look.
    If you are there, you will realize what a lovely shop it is. There are a lot of useful stuffs to buy. The variety makes the shop very special.

    What to buy: Of course you should buy in Brghton clothes, shoes and bags. But in this Pound shop you will fond very nice birthday greeting cards, nice small gifts. Like me I bought yesterday earplug which has a design of a high heel. That looks bit crazy but it is also very funny.

    What to pay: I mean everything is only one pound there. So when you take 50 articles, you only have to pay 50 pounds. That is very cheap, trust me. And the stuffs are useful, maybe for not a longer period. But you can use it for several months.

    Primark, H & M, Henes etc: Cheap and cheerful

    by amapola66 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Most people don't need an introduction to Primark and H & M's! but if you are new to British stores, these are the staples for cheap and cheerful clothes.

    Primark have just opened a hug store in Western Rd (just down from Churchill Sqaure shopping center) - this store is especially good for teenagers who want to spend their pocket money and are still growing! Primark is also handy for those boring yet useful objects such as T towels and matress covers etc and they have fabulously cheap and cheerful undies too, so cheap that when they wear out, just throw them away and buy some more (very handy if you are touring).

    H & M's are a little better quality, but you can find some funky bargains and I have always liked their reasonably priced bikinis. The adult store is at the entrance to Churchill Square and the very popular and reasonably priced childrens version, downstairs in the shopping center.There is now also a newer H & M opposite on the main Western Road.

    So if you fancy grabbing something to remind you of your stay here, but don't want to spend much money, head to these to stores first.

    (Link to Churchill Square shopping center below).

    What to buy: Primark : Underwear, socks, household things

    Hennes/H & Ms : Ceap and cheerful funky clothing

    What to pay: Cheap - especially in the sales!

  • Hotel Chocolat: Chocolate Heaven

    by ianamber Written Jul 5, 2010

    The store on Duke Street is amazing; the staff are incredibly friendly and really do all they can to help you find what you are looking for. The presentation of the chocolates is beautiful; the shop is well laid out, making it easy to find what you are looking for.

    What to buy: My favourite is the Pink Champagn Truffles, you get 16 truffles in a lovley box. The truffles have a real cream filling and are dusted with icing sugar and strawberry power..Delicious!

    What to pay: Well if you can't resit the mouth-watering chocolates on display then you can expect to pay around £20 for a box of chocolates.

    I discovered it is cheaper to buy some clothes and shoes from Brighton, than doing it in Bulgaria. I was really surprised because I didn't expect that. Even in sports shops like Adidas you can find goods in better prices. So, don't hesitate, just look around and visit them:)

    Tickled; Lust.co.uk: Tasteful "adult" shops

    by miniman2804 Written Jul 2, 2008

    Brighton is just this sort of town. The clientele are young and well off, and it has an edginess to it that is most attractive.

    Hence shops like this. They are opposite each other on Gardner St right by Komedia (q.v.) Superior to high st chains eg Ann Summers in quality (so I'm told) and in scope

    Yes, you need to be braodminded, but great fun to browse and buy if you are with the right person x x

    What to buy: Let your imagination guide you

    What to pay: As muc has you like

    AUDREY'S CHOCOLATES: IMPECCABLE TASTE

    by themajor Written Jul 1, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Celebrating 60 years in business since their shop opened in 1948, Audrey's are renowned in Brighton and Hove for making the finest traditional handmade chocolates. Their speciality is fondant creams - I quote 'Traditional English Rose and Violets Creams are hand made in our kitchen to traditional recipes using the finest fondants, rose and violet oils, enrobed in plain chocolate and decorated with crystallized rose and violet petals'. Hmm, not usually my first choice out of the choccy box but even I'm interested! They also create the full range of hard and soft centred chocolates and in my humble opinion they produce the finest chocolate gingers I've ever tasted! Crystallised peppermints, chocolate covered orange peel, nuts and nougat, langue du chat...it's all waiting for you. Bring money and elasticated trousers.

    What to buy: Chocolate gingers. Superbly good.

    What to pay: The more you want the more you'll pay - but it is rather special!

    MONTEZUMA'S: REVENGE IS SWEET!

    by themajor Written Jun 30, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Montezuma's was founded in 2000 by two lawyers who wanted the swap the dry and dusty for the delicious and delightful. When it first opened this single outlet it was the first high profile traditional chocolate shop in Brighton since the long established Audrey's and the successful Thorntons confectionery chain. But whereas the Audrey's was based on traditional excellence, and Thorntons on mass market appeal (and splendid toffee!), Montezuma's aimed at a trendier crowd using a more modern approach to chocolate making that drew upon exotic tastes and fair trade/organic practices.

    There are now 6 stores in total scattered across south east England and all sell a mixture of fine organic chocolate bars, chunky slabs of chocolate and hand made truffles and other chocs. The range isn't as large as somewhere like Audreys who concentrate on the hand made side of the business specialising in ready prepared and customer selected boxes, so if you want an impressive box of wonderful traditional chocolates I'd go there. If however you want to spoil yourself, indulge the kids, grab a bar of 'chilli' choc or buy something as a dinner party pressie then Montezuma's will do very nicely thank-you.

    Mon-Sat 0930-1800, Sun 1100-1700

    What to buy: ...'er, chocolate?
