What to get your foodie Father?

Eat, drink and be safe.

Father’s Day (16 June) is the holiday for honouring fatherhood and paternal bonds, so when it comes to paying tribute to him you ought to make sure it’s worthy of his awesomeness. Use our gift guide below to find the perfect present for your dad, or check out the Father’s Day offers currently running in Brighton at the bottom of this page.

The discerning dad

Let’s face it whilst some are chuffed to bits with a shop-bought card, others may require something with a little more panache. If your Father falls into the Discerning Dad category then we recommend purchasing them a gift from The Great British Charcuterie; Their curd, cure and craft beer gift sets make an ideal gift for the cultivated Father.

There are innumerable options here in Brighton, so to get you started take a look at our picks for the best Sunday roast in Brighton or check out the winners of BRAVO 2024 Best Sunday Roast in Brighton.

brunch time Dad

Brunch culture is at its hight in popularity, as a meal it sits between breakfast and lunch both in timing and style. More venues are now offering brunch as a celebratory type of dining – the bottomless brunch – where you can guzzle down prosecco and bloody Mary’s until your heart’s content. While others maintain that it is a staple of a lazy weekend and might pair it with fresh coffee and people watching. Whichever is your flavour, you’ll not be short of choice. Here’s our pick of local cafes that boast a bounty of banging brunches, our top spots for plant-based brunches and the top 20 winners of the BRAVO best brunch 2024. Let the feasting commence!

Teach an old dad new tricks

It isn’t true when they say that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. If learning is a lifelong process and you want to teach your old dad to sit, rollover, brew beer, or maybe even cook, then sign him up for a culinary masterclass at Brighton Cookery School. In good time, he will be demonstrating his new skills for you and the family.


Out of town Dad 

If you can’t get to him or the family is too far away to get to you, then why not send dad a gift of paternal gratitude in the post? We created our From Sussex With Love page with precisely this in mind; these local growers, producers and makers all deliver nationally so you can send the gift of Sussex to the deserved one this Father’s day.
