If you’re only a wee bit hungry, Isaac At (2 Gloucester Street; 07765 934740) is ideal for dinner – the low-mileage set menu dishes are small, the flavours zingy and the creations mind-blowingly original. Booking is essential. If it’s Sunday however, you can’t beat some fine pub grub. Try The Basketmakers (12 Gloucester Road; 01273 689006); it’s buzzy, with dozens of whiskies, ales and craft beers alongside Sussex fish and meat dishes.
Finish with a show. Big-name musicians and comics such as Eddie Izzard, Nish Kumar, and Russel Kane have all performed at the Dome (Church Street; 01273 709709), or if live music, alternative magic or cabaret in an intimate setting is more your thing, check out The Latest Music Bar (14-17 Manchester Street; 01273 687171) for everything from swing and rock, to ska and reggae.
