The Stoneham

291 user reviews 4

Based on the outskirts of Hove, The Stoneham is a popular haunt among those in the know. Decked out with fairy-lights, twinkling candles and quirky neon fixtures, it's as pretty as they come. And you won't go hungry either - feast on sustainably-sourced cuisine such as crispy confit belly of pork and handmade salmon burgers.

The Lion and Lobster

888 user reviews 4

Known for their top-notch pub fare and locally-sourced seafood, The Lion and Lobster can be seen a mile off thanks to its vibrant red exterior, but inside it's another story. A maze of weaving staircases, period features and hidden beer gardens, this infamous spot looks to be straight out of a fairytale.

One of Hove's favourite watering holes, The Wick Inn promises more than your average pub experience. While they've got some great local ales, classic fixings and a popular quiz night, this place also just happens to boast a secret upstairs speakeasy that serves up some of the town's best bourbon cocktails.

Idle Hands

With slick but welcoming interiors, oodles of craft beer and drool-worthy mac and cheese on the menu, this town centre pub is an obvious choice whether you're in the market for a few post-work pints or a cosy date night destination.
