Close to home dining, at Hove Place

The menu places locally sourced produce at its heart, many venues make this same claim, but few publish food miles next to each dish; as Hove Place does. The menu also changes seasonally, beautifully reflecting the time of year in the tempo of dish.

The winter bistro menu boasts such hearty delights as roast pumpkin soup with pickled squash and sourdough for starters, mains of poached lemon sole with winter greens and cockles and warm apples sponge cake for dessert; all with a combined food mileage of a mere 71 miles.

British Charcuterie

For some light grazing with serious ingredients, the Hove Place Deli Boards are very popular. 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!
