Expert review of The Meadow

An acclaimed restaurant which uses the finest seasonal ingredients from Sussex and Kent.

Run by a young chef who trained at Gordon Ramsay’s Pétrus, The Meadow serves attention-grabbing dishes, such as potted goose with hedgerow jelly, in calm, uncluttered surroundings. Everything changes with the seasons, so there’s always a reason to come back.

Food and drink: 

Will Murgatroyd, the man behind The Meadow, turns out organic haute cuisine with apparent ease, but he likes to keep his menu approachable. Alongside his delicious monthly specials, which may include wild boar charcuterie, pine nut-crusted cod with lemon butter sauce or roast pheasant with chestnut and apple stuffing, you’ll also find back-to-basics choices, with fish and chips with mushy peas and pickled onions a speciality. There’s decent wine to match.

Ambience: 

The interior, is light, airy and family-friendly. Simple, blond wood tables share the space with The Meadow’s own farm shop and traiteur.

Service: 

The staff are courteous and efficient.

Location: 

The building, a former bank, is set among Hove’s most elegant terraces and garden squares, around 300 metres from the seafront.

Price advice: 

Simpler dishes cost £6.50-£11.50, more elaborate main courses are priced at £17-£20.
