Scoffers (previously Scoff Reviews) was founded by Gary Simmons in 2012. He was born in Malaysia and spent a fair amount of his childhood abroad, in the Far East and the Middle East. Now settled in Brighton, he writes about the food scene in Brighton & London and runs a digital design studio.

Paul Reynolds, a web developer and friend based in London joined forces with Gary in 2016 to help build the Scoffers App and grow Scoffers. The aim is for Scoffers to become your go-to place for all things foodie in London & Brighton.
