Enjoyable days followed by quality time in our Sussex gastropub

 

There are so many ways to savour an extremely pleasant day around here, especially when you end the experience in one of the best pubs in West Sussex. Here at the Shepherd & Dog, we’ve provided a fabulous evening meal for so many people who have spent the day enjoying the local area. Here are four ways to have daytime fun followed by evening bliss.

Shop till you drop

Brighton is rightly famous for the quality of the retail therapy that it offers. You’ll find all types of shops here, from familiar high street names to independent boutiques. The Lanes is a particular pleasure, in part because it’s rightly seen as something rather unique. And you can finish your shopping day with a few well-earned drinks at the finest rural pubs near Brighton.

Soak up the sun

As soon as the sun comes out, the waterfront at Brighton comes alive. The only thing to do is go with the flow, so find a patch of beach, lay out your towel and savour the sunshine. And when you’ve had enough, head to the Shepherd & Dog and treat yourself to the type of fine dining Sussex people have been taking for granted for many years.

Check out the history

Brighton rightly boasts a wonderful sense of history, having been a popular seaside location for many centuries. Landmarks such as the Royal Pavilion and Preston Manor are well worth a visit, as are places such as the Brighton Toy and Model Museum. Then, when you’re ready to relax, family pubs near Brighton will be ready and waiting to help you unwind.

Savour a view from the skies

Brighton’s i360 is a must-visit for anyone who enjoys a dramatic vista. It’s located on the seafront close to the remains of the old West Pier, and stands at an impressive 162 metres high. If you have a head for heights, you’re sure to love this place. Afterwards, you can stop and watch the world go by with a cold drink and a tasty meal at a number of Devils Dyke pubs.
