Expert review of The Foragers

This is a quiet neighbourhood pub with impeccable green credentials.

More and more Brighton eating places are building their menus around local ingredients, but few are embracing the concept quite as passionately as The Foragers. The chefs at this excellent gastro-pub supplement their carefully selected supplies of organic, Sussex and Kent meat, fish and vegetables with seasonal herbs and salad leaves picked in the wild.

Food and drink: 

The menu changes regularly and has a truly seasonal feel. It generally includes posh sandwiches, soup made with woodland ingredients and modest portions of excellent smoked, braised, roasted or baked meat and fish with imaginative selections of vegetables. The bar serves Harvey’s bitter, organic wine and premium spirits.

Ambience: 

This rather plain-looking Victorian pub has been given a gentle makeover: the sign features arty green sprigs, the interior is simple and uncluttered and there’s a deck to one side that’s popular with families.

Service: 

It's warm and hospitable.

Location: 

It's in a residential area of Hove, well off the tourist trail.

Price advice: 

It’s a little pricier than most Brighton pubs, but worth it. Light lunches are £3-10, main courses including traditional Sunday roasts are £10-14.
