The Royal Pavilion Ice Rink in Brighton was last night granted five-year planning permission and will open its twinkly gates to people in Sussex from November 12 to January 22, with an exciting new food and drink offer, open to skaters and non-skaters.

Feast restaurant and bar, includes a Champagne and oyster bar, mobile cocktail bar and a succulent menu, including great family food by day and something more indulgent and extravagant by night.

The cosy and relaxed area overlooking the ice rink has some novel Christmas party offers for families, friends or businesses to enjoy, from £25 per head, with cheese fondues, warming homemade soups, oyster feasts, sharing platters and even the opportunity to have a whole roast piglet feast!

The bar will have a selection of local Sussex ales, premium lagers, ciders, and freshly made Royal Pavilion cocktails and a comprehensive wine list and people are welcome to come and simply have a drink, snack or eat a full meal at this unique ‘pop up’ restaurant and bar.

Feast has been created by Temple and Shian, best known for their Oyster Boys and Mussel Men at festivals, collaborating with top drinks events company Peppermint and they aim to surprise and enchant visitors to the ice rink this Christmas.
