Don't offer table service if you can't handle it. Could have spend hundreds today but instead, had one and left. Once again, management to blame. Although apathetic staff standing around chatting doesn't help... Sort yourselves out.

Waitress split a glass of red wine over my friend, we were not given any money off the bill. The food is overpriced and not that great. Lots of better options very close by.

The service was prompt and generally blameless but my word, the food here is tired, bland and overpriced. The £5 milkshake was nothing more than a glass of watery chocolate milk - we almost sent it back. The £10 burgers (we had chicken and beef) were dry and boring. Amazing how something so basic can be so bad, considering that... More

I don't understand the recent reviews.... maybe a bad day? I had lunch here with a couple of business partners. Food was great and very good value, service was fab and drinks were delicious. Great place to watch the hustle and bustle of Brighton go by. Recommended!

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
