The House is a restaurant in Brighton, located in The Lanes shopping center and pedestrian area. The coast is just a five minute walk away and the bus station is also fairly close by. The House is run by a family, which has a large covered and heated terrace. Inside, there is a common room and several smaller rooms which you can rent for a private party. The menu has a distinct Italian influence. The soup of the day costs 4.50 mushrooms in sauce cino to 5 pounds, no fried calamari, shrimp cocktail, duck rolls, all at less than 6 pounds. The Fish and chips are very good with a homemade tartar sauce, which costs 8.50. They also offer fish soup, fish pie, a whole fish with rosemary .. I kind of depends on what is available in the market. They also prepare some meat dishes. The price of the main course dishes ranges from 8 to 17 pounds. The desserts are nothing special. The service is a little slow on Sundays, when dozens of people descend onto the terrace, but it's the same anywhere in Brighton.
Eating when you travel on a low budget while avoiding the big fast food chains can be difficult, but it's not impossible. Apostrophe is in Sant Christopher Place, just off Oxford Street's many shops and malls and fast food places. But Apostrophe is not a fast food joint, the products they offer are well-prepared and they tempt you from their display cases. You can sit on the terrace outside if the weather permits, or in the dining room on the ground floor. Oddly enough, at the counter there is a water area with large jugs of water with lemon or mint, and you can serve yourself a glass if you like. The selection of sandwiches will surprise you with their originality and are real gourmet snacks! We tried the hummus with peppers for £2'90, brie with pear and spinach for £ 3'50, and while the combo was a bit strange, it was delicious. If you want snacks, they have some great looking sandwiches, and a variety of sweets and cakes, muffins, cookies that will leave you speechless. You can accompany it with coffees and of course with good English tea. Although we did not try them, they also have salads and soups, fruit juices, and more. Please note that if you choose to eat on the terrace, the average prices are £ 0.40 more expensive. I'd suggest asking them to make it to-go, if the weather is good, there is a lovely square with benches just besides the place.
