etch – Fine Dining, Church Road Hove

Take your dad out for a modern british fine dining experience with a difference this year, he deserves it! After winning the Masterchef Professional title in 2015, Steven Edwards opened Etch in Hove which has fast become one of the most loved restaurants in Brighton. Boasting a well crafted wine list shining a star in English wine and with dishes so gorgeously photogenic eating it seems a sin – we can’t think of a better way to show dad some love this fathers day.

Ten Green Bottles – Wine bar, Jubilee Street

Lets be honest – most of us are partial to a glass of wine (or two) on our special day, so why not treat dad to just that this fathers day. Opening in 2010, Ten Green Bottles Brighton quickly became the go-to destination for those who love a great quality glass of wine served by the most knowledgable team in town. If you fancy a nibble alongside your glass of vino then you’re in luck as Simon and the team have taken just as much trouble over sourcing fantastic food to compliment the wine list. Think light bites like Manzanilla Olives or Boquerones (white anchovies) or more substantial plates like smoked salmon, or luscious Per Las blue cheese with walnuts and honey.
