Disappointed overall with this culinary experience. Unremarkable food, the steak should have been much better and the restaurant itself has no atmosphere whatsoever. Pity this restaurant does not come close to what it's sister branch offers in kemp town (excellent by comparison). The Hove Bank was practically dead on a Friday night.... I should have known better!!

If you have 'Steak & Ribs' in your name then surely your steaks have to be very good?! Well not here. My ribeye didn't taste of anything and hadn't been rested properly before serving. The restaurant itself lacks atmosphere...like eating at a branch of Natwest!

Went recently early on a Saturday evening and it was OK. Food was alright, service OK, but nothing to right home about. Been many times and seems that overall standards are falling, also prices have gone up.

I went to Hove Bank with a group of friends after hearing good things about it and being an avid meat eater! I had the chicken and ribs combo. The ribs were absolutely fantastic, The meat just fell off the bone. The BBQ sauce was just right, it wasn't swimming in sauce and the sauce wasn't too sharp or sweet.... More

I went with a friend to take advantage of the Tuesday buy one get one promotion on platters. We shared the rib/wing combo with onion rings. The rings I sent back as they were limp and stuck together and swimming in a puddle of oil, the ribs were very average, no sauce and very lacking in seasoning or flavour. The... More

We went to this restaurant as part of my son's 35th birthday celebrations - there were 8 of us, aged from 15 to 74 and with various dietary requirements. Everyone found something they wanted to eat - generally in the form of a burger, be it veggie or meat and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their choices. An attractive space with good... More

I was looking forward to a meal at Hove Bank as it looked like my sort of food, but was sadly disappointed. I get the impression that the restaurant has a high opinion of itself, but the food doesn't match up. One of my party works in London and eats out at some top London restaurants. He commented that the... More

Went there early evening on Good Friday as a couple. It was busy which seemed good. Service was friendly but a bit hit and miss. No proper chips available so we were offered McCain type fries which my wife actually prefers. House salad was a tiny portion but just as well as it was too heavy on the onion, sharp... More

Went to The Hove Bank on 27/03/13 and had a lovely evening. The wait staff were attentive without being overbearing, and very helpful when deciding what to have, and told us we really didn't need to order an extra side dish of coleslaw as it came with the ribs anyway. The ribs were so tender and moist and just fell... More
