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

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.

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