Sure, you technically already ate an egg mayo sandwich, four brownies, and a whole bag of Tangfastics on the train out of some warped belief you’d be on Southern Railway for the next three months, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t also have a sandwich - more importantly, a good sandwich - now that you’re in Brighton. The place to do that is Smokehouse. A legendary little sandwich shop housed in one of the seafront arches, this place has got everything from salmon and salad doorstop numbers to our personal favourite, the crab sandwich covered. You’ll find a couple deck chairs out front, but our game plan would be to pick up your seafood sarnies and then find a nice spot on the beach to sit-down, tuck-in, and contemplate whether your boss would let you work remotely from Brighton (“work-life balance is so important Martin”) so you could eat fresh crab every single day.
