Hove Place is one of my favourites. The Italian garden is truly pretty and a perfect place to hang outin the sun. It’s relaxed atmosphere, food and service is excellent, with a Bistro menu to rival any top restaurant.
I have pretty much tried everything on their menu and have never been disappointed. Almost everything here is homemade.
If you are after something lighter, their Artisan sandwiches are delicious. A simple steak sandwich from the bar menu is stacked full of perfectly cooked steak and the Deli Board has the biggest selection of locally sourced meats and cheeses I have ever tried (sharing these large slate plates of amazing food (the duck scotch eggs are wow!), is the thing that draws me and my friends back often). Sunday lunches are of course fabulous and it gets busy pretty quickly, so I would advise you to book for these.
