7. The Salt RoomWhen The Salt Room opened in February 2015 on King’s Road it became an instant favourite – its uninterrupted sea views from the terrace, or through the huge glass windows, are the perfect accompaniment to the fish-focused menu. The Josper charcoal grill cooks up moist whole fish, lobster and Black Angus steaks (from £18) while the fruits of the sea platter features oysters, langoustines, prawns, mussels, clams and cockles – plus lobster (£40) or crab (£35). There’s also Sunday lunch on Sundays from 12–4pm. 8. Brighton Beer DispensaryFrom real ale, to craft beers and all of the porters in between, this Dean Street drinking den is the best in Brighton for a proper pint, run by local brewers Brighton Bier. You’ll find up to ten ales on tap at any one time (always at least one by Brighton Bier) – the 5% South Coast IPA perhaps, or the 3.3% Thirty Three range of pale ale, red and black. Burgers, chicken wings and roast dinners line the stomach and there’s a good range of whiskies too. For more on where to find the best pints in the UK, read about these terrific craft beer pubs. 6. OhSo SocialThere’s no bad time to call into OhSo Social. During the day you can sit on the beachfront terrace and munch on fish and chips (£9.95) washed down with a craft beer, while night times see the resident DJs tempting you onto your feet on the dancefloor. Find this cool beach spot on Kings Road Arches, with prime tables enjoying beautiful panoramas over the water towards the pier. There’s no door charge and you won’t be kicked out until 2am on Saturday nights. For more ideas on where to party post-World Cup match, check this list out. 4. Terre a TerreVeggies rejoice, there is innovative vegetarian cuisine to be found in the UK, and it’s right here in Brighton at this award-winning restaurant on East Brighton Street. The menu is extensive, with plenty of small plates ripe for sharing. Try the savoury churros or hot smoked tofu before moving on to mains such as aubergine dengaku (soft sake-baked aubergine served with numerous accompaniments) or the potato, onion and garlic rosti. Mains cost around £15.5. The CricketersBrighton’s oldest pub was immortalised by Graham Greene in his novel Brighton Rock and today keeps the Victorian era alive with its low lighting, thick carpets and traditional wooden bar. Fancy a spook with your supper? The Cricketers offers a special three course menu if you go on one of the ghost walks of the lanes (every Tuesday to Saturday night from 7:30pm). There’s decent pub grub at lunchtimes (try the burger for £11) and a pleasant courtyard bar. 10. FanzoneBrighton will open a dedicated and family-friendly Fan Zone on its beach, just east of Brighton Pier, during the first weekend of the tournament. From Friday 18th until Sunday 20th of September the free to enter zone will feature big screens where you can watch the games, grab a bite to eat from various food and drink stalls, as well as enjoy a few activities yet to be revealed. Opening hours are 4–11pm Friday, 11am–11pm Saturday and 11am–8pm Sunday. How to get to the gamesThe nearest station to Brighton Community Stadium is Falmer, served by trains from Brighton and Lewes. There will also be a shuttle bus running from the Fanzone, near Brighton Pier, to the stadium.

Café CohoNeed a coffee to kickstart the rugby packed weekend? There’s nowhere better than this local chain of stylish cafés. Take your pick from two locations – they have a spot on Ship Street and another right next to Brighton train station on Queens Road.

Accompany your caffeine with a brunch of eggs Benedict or the pancake tower with bacon and maple syrup.2. Chilli PickleMore sophisticated than your average curry house, this authentic Indian restaurant (on Jubilee Street) serves up delicious fresh tandoori dishes, curries and biryanis. At lunchtime the best bet is the thali, a main dish served with rice, vegetables, dal, pickle, chutney, salad, raita, pappad and baby naan bread – a complete meal, served on a tray, from £11.50. There’s a separate kids menu too.3. Riddle & Finns, The BeachBook ahead to dine under the seafront arches at this popular champagne and oyster bar, the sister restaurant to the original Lanes location.

Head to the North Laine for Brighton’s best scoop, made daily on the premises from fresh milk and cream from a local Sussex dairy. Flavours change constantly but expect at least 20 to choose from: perhaps sea salt caramel, blueberry and dark Ecuadorian chocolate or syrup sponge pudding (or all three) will take your fancy? New guest flavours are introduced every week. There’s a range of desserts too, from affogato and banana split to hot fudge sundae and even a gelato burger, made with a brioche bun (£3.50).
