Six at 6pm with… Michael Norman-Watt, Co-founder of Brambles

Michael Notman-Watt, co-founder of Brambles, has worked in an array of impressive kitchens: The Dairy in Clapham, 64 Degrees in Brighton, and Bistro Union, owned by Michelin-starred chef Adam Byatt. All this before launching private supper club business The Syndicate Takeover Kitchen in 2018 and Brambles, an exciting collaboration between Michael, Emily & David Pearse, and Harry Hiscock. Together they bring local, seasonal food to pubs and venues in and around Brighton. Michael’s currently at the New Inn, Hurstpierpoint, which just happens to be my local 🙌🏻.

To say I’m thrilled to have him here, sharing his Sussex faves with us is an understatement. Award-winning chefs know their onions when it comes to eating out. So, grab a cuppa and find out where to go eat next…

1. Sussex food that makes you go 😋

If all you want is to go 😋, a bao by Baby Bao at The Pond in Brighton is definitely where to go.

2. Favourite place to go for coffee?

V&H Cafe in Hove. Great filter coffee as well as normal espresso. While you are there you may as well get a great breakfast too.

3. Favourite Sussex pub for a roast?

Not a pub but Wild Flor in Hove does a killer roast! But have mention, our roast at The New Inn is pretty bloody good.

4. Favourite Sussex tipple?

Arundel Brewery’s Tarrent Street. Absolutely delicious and low abv, so no big hangover the next day.

5. Favourite Sussex dish or ingredient?

We have so much incredible produce! Meat, fish and vegetables all at our doorstep. I think for me, partridges are my favourite meat and in abundance right now!

6. Bannoffee Pie or Sussex Pond Pudding?

I’m a sucker for caramel so has to be Bannoffee Pie!

Thanks so much for joining us, Michael! Can’t wait to head over to the pub with Team SB&F soon 👌🏻

You’ll find Michael in the New Inn’s kitchen. The kitchen is open 12pm – 5pm on Sundays, 12pm – 3pm and 6pm – 8.30pm Tuesday – Friday. Closed all day Monday. Booking is a must to avoid disappointment.

The New Inn, 76 High Street, Hurstpierpoint, West Sussex, BN6 9RQ
