There's a dip in the road on the coastal route to Hastings where for a moment you can glimpse a very different route that cuts through it.
The second thing I noticed once we had sat down to eat in the super busy and sunlit restaurant Granger and co was that the other diners were almost exclusively female.
It's always good to feel as if you're in the know. That hidden little gem that the locals love. A place where the food is fresh and tasty, great value, great vibe and super central too.
I get a little bit excited when I go on to the magazine.co.uk website. Offers galore whizz past as brightly coloured magazine covers pop up in turn on their headline banner.
