Woodbox Pizzeria

A vintage Citroen H-Van is where Woodbox originally came to life. In 2013 armed with a classic set of wheels, a wood fired oven and some delicious Napoli style sourdough, these delicious street pizzas were sold to the masses at food markets and festivals across the UK. Due to the impeccable reputation the touring Neapolitan food had built, the Woodbox Pizzeria opened last year in the heart of Kemptown. Offering the same traditional Napoli style pizzas, made with locally sourced Sussex ingredients and blended with fine Italian flour, you’ll really want to get a pizza this action. The decor is modern, clean and simple with an emphasis on top quality food. Make sure you save room for pud cos their authentic gelato is worth more than a pretty penny.

Their famous garden has also recently been improved after being voted Brighton's best garden for the last two years. You don't need to worry about it chucking it down on you either, with the addition of their new heated garden roof. Now you can enjoy some wonderful food and wine al fresco all year round!

The Walrus

The Walrus is quite possibly one of Team Wriggle's favourite recent additions to Brighton's historic Lanes. The team behind this suave spot have poured oodles of time and effort into the former public house, bestowing upon it a brand new lease of life, as well as some pretty exciting, diverse new features. The sprawling venue now boasts an upstairs restaurant, a two-storey rooftop garden, and even an atmospheric basement live music venue. The part we love the most, though, is the cosy and relaxed yet super-stylish pub that lies at the heart of the building. Full of intimate booths and snugs, the pub is decked out with an open fire, Victorian-style seating and plenty of green leather and red velvet comfy seatin. Despite the pub's classic old school boozer feel, the bar itself is well stocked with the finest and tastiest beers, spirits and soft drinks that we all know and love.
