I went to Hove kitchen on a Sunday afternoon at 3pm. It was not crowded inside and we (my son and I) were able to find a table. The service was quite quick but wrong drinks were brought. I ordered a roast as that was all that was available - the slow roast belly of pork roast was average. While... More

When this restaurant opened, I would've rated it as one of the best in Brighton. The food was delicious, the service outstanding and the choice of local food-brilliant. Therefore, I couldn't have been more disappointed on Friday night when I took a visiting friend to eat there. Having raved about the quality and atmosphere, I was really disappointed to find... More

I had a mediocre brunch here today. The Full English was ok but certainly nothing special. I made the mistake of going to the toilet: the two toilets did not flush and, without going into detail, they were disgusting. I was there very early on Sunday, so have to assume that it had been like that since the day before.... More

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
