In Wild Flor, they have created a relaxed, comfortable setting for diners to unwind and enjoy some of the finest food and drink that the city has to offer.
Locally sourced ingredients
The kitchen has sourced its ingredients from some of Sussex’s finest suppliers. Much of the meat, for instance, is supplied from Garlic Wood Butchery and Saddlescombe Farm, Rebel Charcuterie (their Hove based neighbours) supply charcuterie.
In addition to the locality, ethical produce is at the core of Wild Flor. Using seasonal suppliers that reflect their commitment to providing the best possible ingredients means they’ve branched out to other British, new wave farms. Lyon Hill Farm provides the poultry, Shrub supply much of the fruit and veg and Wild Harbour from Cornwall for seasonal and sustainably caught fish.
Undoubtedly guests will testify to the exceptional quality of the seasonal dishes served at Wild Flor Hove. Wild Flor will most likely meet that praise by crediting their suppliers and remarking on the importance of each ingredient that goes into their dishes.
