MARKET Restaurant & Kitchen Bar, Hove

MARKET Restaurant Hove, established 2015 by the experienced restaurateur and designer/chef duo Kate Alleston and Neil Mannifield (Manni) was named and inspired by them stumbling upon the old Camden Market sign at an antiques fair, and this adorns the front of the building. This year you’ll find them in both the Top 10 Best Restaurants of our very own BRAVO awards and the Top Twenty of Brighton’s Best Restaurants.

Market Restaurant


A long counter dominates the main restaurant from where diners are entertained by the chefs while enjoying the fresh, modern look which has been designed (by Manni) to give the feel of a traditional market yet with a very Spanish feel. You’ll discover a swathe of Victorian Green metro tiling, plenty of mirrors, a lawn wall and a bright, clean, utilitarian approach to the furniture and lighting alongside an array of hanging Spanish cured hams.

The décor at MARKET shouts Modern Tapas which is exactly what the restaurant is about. Go downstairs to 42d DOWNMARKET and discover more of the same but with a more intimate feel. This space is perfect for groups and private diners.

Tapas as MARKET is varied and innovative and aptly presented on the menu under the headings ‘Fishmonger’, ‘Butcher’, ‘Greengrocer’ and so on. Alongside traditional tapas ‘Para Picar’, such as Padron Peppers, Croqueta del Dia and Market’s almost famous Goats’ Cheese Churros with Truffle Honey, you’ll discover dishes like Sea Bass with Burgos Morcilla & Chorizo Piperada and Beef Short Rib with Pedro Ximenez Sweet and Sour Sauce with Cauliflower & Crispy Shallot.

The menu also features a delicious range of Spanish meats and cheeses, including of course, the Jamons (hams) hanging from the ceiling, and these can be ordered separately or enjoyed as a selection board. Due to the wide offering all dietary requirements are very well catered for at Market so if you are an omnivore or a vegan you can be sure to leave satiated.

If you’re in the mood for a really good Sunday roast then The Market have got you covered. Serving lunch from midday, their sumptuous roasts are available alongside their full tapas menu so you are welcome to mix and match if you want. Sunday roasts feature top end meats from Sussex and Spain, like Sussex Lamb and Spanish Suckling Pig and they always also offer their Veggie/Vegan roast (often served with Mojo Verde to give it their signature Spanish twist).

The exciting and niche wine list featuring almost exclusively Spanish and Sussex wines has been carefully chosen to match the food. Beers are either locally brewed or sourced from Spain and available on tap and by the bottle. Market also offers a super range of cocktails many of which, as you’d expect, feature a Spanish twist or two. Our favourite is Padron My French which includes Padron Pepper infused gin with a cheeky dash of Chartreuse.

    Our first visit back to Market in a while, and we were delighted! This is a restaurant which knows what it is doing and does it so well. A rare find in Brighton and Hove where the stylish decor, and knowledgable, friendly front of house match the quality of the ingredients and delivery from the kitchen. Our group particularly enjoyed the mackerel, and the aubergine dishes. But we wanted to order much more than we could eat! Thank you Market; we will be back soon!

    I live close to Market restaurant which is fortunate as it’s one of my favourite B&H eateries! The staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Kate, the manager, is a true gem.

    The food is very reasonably priced for the quality and standard. I’ve been there for dinner for two, a birthday celebration and brunch. The food never disappoints and the brunch is out of the world good.

    If you haven’t yet been to Market you absolutely must go, stat!

    A vibrant and buzzing local restaurant/wine bar that serves tapas dishes and great wines. Love the green tiles and the feel inside the restaurant which is always lively and enticing. Food is delicious with lots of European influences and interesting combinations of flavours and textures. Definitely worth checking out and spending an evening working through the small dishes and wines.

  4. Angela Simmonds

    Buzzy place, a great variety of small dishes packed with flavour.

    A great choice if you want to graze through their different menu sections – from the butcher, from the baker, from the fishmonger which is a fun way to do things.

    Most fun dining we have had in Hove for ages! Well done Market keep up the good work.
