TGI's plan is on for Brighton

First published in News

TGI Friday’s bosses have reaffirmed their plans to open a restaurant in Brighton city centre after they pulled out of a council licensing meeting last week.

The American group postponed plans for a new branch of the chain in the Old Post Office building in Ship Street because it is currently occupied by squatters.

David Carroll, TGI Friday’s UK director of acquisitions and development, said: “We are still planning to bring TGI Friday’s to Brighton, however we are currently delayed with our plans due to a few technicalities.

“The Ship Street site is still of interest to us and we hope to open in the near future – bringing the Friday’s experience to the city.”

Great news and that'll bring a few more jobs in. Won't please green councillors though, they don't like jobs being created unless those jobs involve travellers and protesters.

Firstly, the Post Office won't ever come back to that building. Get used to it.

Secondly, what are these 'Laines' to which you refer?

Indeed, where are the 'Laines' exactly?

In fact, where is 'Brighton city centre'? Last time I looked Brighton was a town, with a town centre? Unless of course Hove has also been promoted to a city and also now has a city centre?

Maybe you mean 'Brighton & Hove city centre', because of course, Brighton & Hove is a city, Brighton is simply a constituent town within the city boundaries, same with Hove, and Portslade etc

A "laine" is a Sussex dialect term for an open tract of land at the base of the Downs, which is derived from an Anglo-Saxon legal term for a kind of land holding. The space that is now North Laine was once occupied by five open farming plots of a type that seem to have been generally unchanged in style since the Middle Ages. By the 19th century, the farming plots (which had been for centuries subdivided into hides and furlongs) were encircled by major municipal roads for Brighton. With building developments across Brighton beginning to encroach upon the fields, the tracks that had divided the individual hide plots were normalized into streets, and the area was soon appropriated as a new settlement and market area.

Well cut & pasted.

However, I am none the wiser as to which Laines you refer, which you appear to think that TGI Friday's are going to spoil.

You've never been to the lanes/north laine? They're in Brighton, the area has many independent shops set in narrow streets - you really should get out more especially if you post on a Brighton-based website, it helps you contribute.

I think the sound I can hear is the sound of straws being clutched. I've seen many a spelling or punctuation error on much posher menus as well as the poncey places in Brighton.

And if we are going to start nitpicking it's "Fill your boots"

It's the chains that rip you off, serving absolute crap for an extortionate price. But hey, there's always a market (mug) for these things. Fill yer boots.... BTW - it should be TGIFs.. Or TGIt's Friday... If an international chain of 'restaurants' can't get basic grammar right, or can't be bothered to get it right, what does it say about their attitude to food/customer service?[/p][/quote]I think the sound I can hear is the sound of straws being clutched. I've seen many a spelling or punctuation error on much posher menus as well as the poncey places in Brighton. And if we are going to start nitpicking it's "Fill your boots" Number Six

Great news on a number of levels.

The first is the development will flush out another bunch of miscreant benefit grabbing no-marks who are presently trashing the old post office.

The second is that TGI Friday's will renovate/restore the building presently being trashed by the squatting miscreants.

Thirdly, we have yet more choice and the jobs this will create should provide very good news for a number of Brighton residents.

Finally, I fully appreciate that a small number of idiots will wish to undermine the efforts of this company and guess what.......people who really care about our city don't give a t*ss about their views.

If the cap fits, wear it!

Weatherspoons is only one step up from street drinking. Awful chain, just encourages alcoholics and really bad food as well.
Well not really, Weatherspoons has a roof, a bar, toilets, glasses for your drink etc, whereas street drinking usually involves a cold damp road and a can of K Cider.

Weatherspoons is a decent enough alternative for students and those who can't afford to fork out £4+ on a pint, but still want a decent night out.

It doesn't really encourage alcoholics either, it sells alcohol, like all the other pubs and bars in town, its just not as extortionate.

Oh my there's some right snobby comments on here!

We should be celebrating the fact that some people will be put in work. If there was a "better" establishment why haven't they taken this project on?
