We were a party of 9 who turned up at 10.30 on a Sunday morning all wanting cooked breakfast. This was not a problem for Hove Kitchen. We were sat on a long table together and the food and drinks were served quickly. The full English was very good quality ingredients and cooked well, eggs done in anyway you like.... More

Used to really love this place when I lived in Hove, but now I live in Brighton, I hardly ever venture over, so I was surprised to hear from some mates that they boycott it these days due to poor food and bad service. I like to see for myself, so this past weekend, four of us ventured along for... More

Under new ownership since January so thought I would give it another try as the last visit disappointing and the service very poor. A new and extended menu has been added to the existing menu, probably not a good idea. The waitress's were very good, however, the food was cold, badly presented (could have been from any old transport cafe)... More

We visited this restaurant today and although the food was ok the service was very disappointing. We waited 35 minutes for the starters to arrive , when. I asked why it was taking so long she said we are very busy ... The place was half empty. There did not seem to be a manager and the staff seemed headless... More

This place has seriously gone down hill. 11 am on a Sunday and dirty toilets. The service was poor and very slow. 20 minutes to get 3 orange and soda and a black current and soda. Plus they got the order wrong. Didn't order food as we have a life to live and didn't want to risk the wait. Won't... More

I only wish I'd seen the recent reviews on here before popping in on a Saturday lunchtime with a friend to give the place a go. Our waitress was hopeless and got everything on our order wrong (including our drinks). When the starters eventually arrived after an eternity my soup was good but my friends portion of asparagus tips was... More

Good place to watch the hustle and bustle of Brighton, while eating some nice grub. The seafood here was good and plentiful. Some cocktails £5 and a bit of fun. You'll find cheaper alternatives but tasty.

Went there for the first time in a while and couldn't work out why the food was so bad! Ordered the lamb shank which was just a massive piece of tough meat sat on mashed potato with the consistency of play doh. The Hove Kitchen did our wedding breakfast last year which was awesome and we used to love this... More

Three of us went to The Hove Kitchen last night and had a not very good experience. We found the prices to be very high for the quality of the food. The main garnish appeared to be rather weary lettuce leaves - I don't feel the chef has even heard of rocket! My vegetarian dish - a type of mezes... More

I can remember this establishment from my first visit, some years ago. Part of the reason I remember it so clearly, is of course, because it hasn't changed. Indeed - if something isn't broke, then why fix it? The decor, ambience, and staff at Hove Kitchen felt very familiar upon my most recent visit - for a hearty breakfast following... More
