Celebrating British produce

The menu at Hove Place showcases the finest British produce. Created by chef, Phil Bartley, the menu serves modern pub classics, fish and chips, delicious burgers and focaccia rolls for lunch along with a selection of starters and desserts for those with a sweet tooth. The Deli Boards are popular and use locally sourced ingredients – perfect to share with a friend while you enjoy a pint in the garden on a sunny day.

The menu places locally sourced produce at its heart, and changes seasonally, reflecting the time of year in the dishes.

Enjoy pub classics like fish and chips with a minted pea puree or a juicy dry-aged steak and bone marrow burger. For plant-based eaters, there are flavoursome dishes such as the wild mushroom gnocchi or the quinoa and sweet potato burger. If you’re stopping for lunch, the focaccia sandwiches would go down a treat. Order triple-cooked chips or a side salad too –  and enjoy your feast in the lovely garden.

Hove Place | British Charcuterie

For some light grazing with serious ingredients, the Hove Place Deli Boards are very popular and are provided by the Great British Charcuterie. Begin with the starter basics of bread, crackers, pickles and butter then add onto it meats and cheeses that represent some of the finest produce in the UK. This is a great way to share a light or extensive platter and take a trip of discovery with friends over drinks.

And let’s not forget Sunday Roasts

Of course, a pub wouldn’t be a pub without doing the good old-fashioned Sunday Roast! Serving a fantastic selection of roasts every week, with the same focus on high-quality produce and high-welfare meat. Roasts at Hove Place are an extremely popular local favourite, so booking ahead is advised!

    Fantastic Gluten Free Sunday lunch here around a month ago here when we were visiting family. Heaters and blankets are a lovely touch if you are outside in the courtyard garden. So good I am coming back this weekend with my daughter for her 21st birthday to do it all again.

    Posh aperol spritz and a stunning fish dish with lots of laughs for a birthday. Garden was great and the service welcoming would definitely recommend.

    My first brunch out in over a year and I loved every second! The sun was shining and the patio was glorious. Scott the host was so lovely and talked me through the menu. The eggs benedict was cooked perfectly (runny yolks!) and all around exceptional service.

    I am dreaming of the Hove Place pub garden, a bottle of white wine, and some delicious charcuterie again. See you soon!

    This pub has the nicest pub garden I have been to in Brighton and Hove. In the evening they have heaters which is a nice touch. The food is also really good quality and their menu is a little bit different to the typical pub grub. One of my favourite places to visit when the sun is shining!

    Lovely pub garden and delicious small plates!
