Sussex CCC Players' Club at English's of Brighton


To begin December’s festive celebrations we welcomed the Sussex CCC Players’ Club to English’s of Brighton for an afternoon of oysters, champagne and a few of the finest dishes on our winter menu. As key sponsors of Sussex Cricket, members of the Players’ Club include some of the biggest businesses in Sussex, and friendly faces we’re sure you’ll recognise from the County Ground. 

Guests enjoyed Laurent-Perrier upon arrival, before being seated for an afternoon of decadent dining and a demonstration in oyster shucking from Jonathan Speirs, who has been our head oyster shucker for over a decade, and a taste of fresh West Mersea rock oysters.

Course after course followed, as Players’ Club members enjoyed house smoked Loch Duart salmon, scallops and, for those with a sweet tooth, our double chocolate, caramel & nougat tart with caramel sauce.

As plates were cleared and brandy ordered, Sussex players Chris Nash and James Anyon stepped up for a Q&A, compered by Tony Cottey, before opening the floor for questions. Quizzed on the season’s injuries, international players and public support, Nash and Anyon stood up well to crowd’s intensive questioning. 

We look forward to welcoming back Players’ Club members in 2016, when we’ll be launching our new spring menu, a refreshed tasting menu, and revising our wine list.

English’s of Brighton are proud sponsors of Sussex Cricket’s Junior Sharkz, and serve a very special Junior Sharkz children’s menu, giving our younger diners the chance to try oysters, lobster and other seafood dishes. Sharkz members also enjoy 10% off their entire bill on production of their membership card.
