Newly refurbished for 2022. Third Avenue offers a taste of up-town New York to Hove.

A new look for Third Avenue Hove

Having launched its fresh look and offer in summer 2022, Third Avenue Hove is back and better than ever. The sophisticated venue has both a Hove restaurant, a bar and a late lounge. As well as exceptional food and drink, Third Avenue benefits from a superb late lounge and a large west facing terrace for alfresco dining

Welcome to Third Avenue Hove

Third Avenue is in a prime location on Church Road. Set in the heart of Hove, minutes from the beach and a short walk from the train station. It’s on the corner of the high street benefitting from a spacious terrace that stretches around to the west-facing Third Avenue and so soaks up the afternoon sun.

What to expect 

Third Avenue Hove feels like it might have been plucked of that other Third Avenue in uptown New York. Hints of Art Deco influence mingle with art inspired from the turn of the century to contemporary. The venue is spacious, with high ceilings and huge windows that allow light to flood the restaurant and the impressive use of mirrors make the space sparkle to create a uniquely elegant, relaxed and soothing atmosphere.

Dining at Third Avenue

The attention to detail is consistent throughout the restaurant’s offering. At Third Avenue. You can dine on signature small plates that draw influence from modern Eastern Mediterranean cuisine. The Third Avenue menu has been divided into sections that detail whether the dish is fish, meat, veggie or vegan and with four to five options available in each category, there is plenty to suit all diets. Snacks, homemade bread, sides and an alluring array of desserts are also available to order.

Everyday brunch in Hove

Brunch is available at Third Avenue everyday from 10am until 3pm. You can expect the same exceptional quality and variety of choice from the food. Dishes vary from classic favourites such as Eggs Benedict and extend to options like Baked Shakshuka and Pan Con Tomate. If you’re as enthusiastic about waffles as we are, then the fact that Third Avenue has an entire section of the menu dedicated to them should be reason enough to pay them regular visits!

The drinks

The drink offering at Third Avenue Hove is extensive. If cocktails are your flavour, then make sure to sample at least one of the house varieties. The mixologists have made modern adaptations to the classics, and the contemporary twists are extremely effective and moreish. Wine lovers will be well looked after here as the wine list is vast and varied. They stock many fine wines from around the world and several sparkling bottles that are produced locally. 


Third Avenue Late Lounge

One of the standout features at Third Avenue is the addition of the late lounge. Located in the basement is an equally opulent club. Decked out with plush banquettes, antique gold and mirrored walls which illuminate the space and set the tone for late nights of laughter and dancing.

Private hire, events and parties

The space available for private parties at Third Avenue is vast and varied. You can hire the entire venue, which can comfortably accommodate 200 people. Or, if you’re hosting a more intimate affair the lounge can accommodate 70 and has the benefit of a private bar, toilets and sound system. As well as smaller parties who just want to reserve areas of the restaurants and terrace.

    I’ve walked past this place a few times and the outside is so pretty, I’ve been meaning to go there for a while!
    We went there with friends on Sunday, we unfortunately were too late for brunch so HAD to have the Sunday lunch menu. I had the vegetable wellington, two had the pork belly and one for the beef. Everything was absolutely beautiful. they were served with cauliflower cheese which was so cheesy and bubbly it was perfect. All the vegetables were cooked and flavoured so beautifully – my fave was the red cabbage! Honestly just a plate of the veggies would’ve suited me fine, I think they outshone the wellington. All our plates were huge and piled high – the porkbelly, in particular, was a triumph. We took the staff recommendation for the bourbon and chocolate sticky toffee pudding for dessert and we were not disappointed. I’m not a massive whiskey fan, but whoever made dessert made all the flavours work and it was so smooth. Can’t remember when I last had food that good. All the staff were super lovely and hats off to the waitress with blonde dreads (I’m so sorry I didn’t get your name) for being so super! Will be back as soon as the food coma wears off….

    Had dinner last night at this AMAZING restaurant! We dine out a lot in Brighton & Hove and are spoilt for choice with excellent restaurants, but this place seriously wowed us! We wanted an amazing steak and having read about their 28-day aged steaks cooked on some ‘world premier charcoal grill, we thought we’d give it a go. We went for a 640g medium rare Chateaubriand and were in food heaven! Cooked to perfection, and the quality of the meat was outstanding, you could’ve cut it with a butter knife. Their special charcoal grill made it taste so perfect, and we hardly spoke to each other while we were eating as we were both too mesmerised by the eating experience, I kid you not! And the three incredible sauces that accompanied it (Bernaise, Peppercorn and Red Wine) tasted all freshly made from scratch, never had a Peppercorn sauce like it before. Add to that lovely hand-cut chips, a fantastic environment with big tables/booths and large cushy sofas and chairs, lots of lovely art on the walls, all very elegant yet casual and comfortable, excellent service, great wine list, it couldn’t have been better. So if you’re looking for the ‘amazing steak experience’, look no further. Easily the best steak I’ve ever had in Brighton & Hove. 🙂

    Wonderful decor, wonderful staff and wonderful food! Best of all, old fashioned in a nice sort of way because the decor absorbs the sound, so it’s NOT NOISY!!!! Expensive but worth it. Will be going back and back.

    Had a great meat platter there today. It Reminded me of hotel Du Vin restaurant and Ivy bistros interior. Music on the background, lovely and shiny new sofa booths. Grilled meat, sea food and chicken are on the menu. Bottle of red starts at £20 pounds. Happy that a new grill house has come down our way. Go there and tray people of Hove!
    It links into a lounge with sushi. Will be trying that for girls night out!
