Smorls Brighton

Growing up green

Of course, Brighton being Brighton, there are plenty of places to eat if you’re raising green-sprouts. Head over to Smorl’s Kitchen at the Open Market to get them a taste for the Brighton staple of falafel, at what we believe to be the best falafel and houmous eatery in the city. A little pitta will give them enough slow-release energy to carry all your packaging-free market veg home on your behalf.

Not far from The Level, or Preston Park, is The Roundhill vegan pub. The venue is super friendly and inviting with lots of light, good vibes and a dedicated child’s menu that is full of fresh seasonal plant-only goodness.

Moksha is family run and very family-friendly, it’s a little home away from home where everyone gets looked after. Serving from breakfast to lunch they do a great selection of homemade cakes and their own blend coffee to keep you going. Moksha won first place in the 2019 BRAVO for ‘Best Brunch’ and top 10 for ‘Family Friendly’. For a quick fix that’s bound to hit the right spot Dodo Pizza sell freshly made pizza by the slice, perfect for a quick pit stop. A timer shows what time the pizzas left the oven so you know it’s not been sat under a heat lamp since the day before.

Nuposto won the Family Friendly for the 2019 BRAVO Awards. With real Neopolitan pizza and handmade fresh pasta, Nuposto is the authentic taste of Italy. Children under 10 get a main meal for free when an adult buys a main, and everyone knows kids love pizza!

Getting in a bit of brain food is always a good idea during the holidays. Keep that noggin ticking and take them to The Salt Room. They only use top quality and sustainable ingredients, so by eating there you can be pretty sure that there will still be fish in the sea when they’re older. Best of all kids under 7 eat for free before 7 pm!

Combining a walk upon Devils Dike and a hearty meal at The Shepherd and Dog is a great day out for all the family. Due to Covid restriction’s the kid’s area is not in use. However, if after your hike you find there is still energy to burn a walk down the stream should calm any lingering serges.
