I’m an avid foodie and often eat in similar restaurants, so far out of the ones I’ve tried this has been the best, both mine and my mums dishes were cooked to perfection, it’s also reasonably priced for the quality.
Service was brilliant, very friendly waitress looking after us. Got busier towards the end of our meal and had to wait a while to pay but could see that this was due to understaffing so no one is really at fault there.
Will 100% be returning and recommending to friends and family

Nice food. The roasts are amazing!!
Rockwater have done such a great job turning this sad old building in to a very cool and welcome addition to Hove.
Check out their wellness classes too.

Big shout out to Charlotte and Tanzi (apologies for the spelling) - Amazing customer service. Efficient, friendly, positive and nothing was too much trouble!

Ate upstairs. £16 for two tiny (5cm) pieces of beef. Overcooked (grey) and served cool/lukewarm, had clearly been sitting on side for a while.

Only two of us but dishes arrived 5 mins apart. Was asked after the food had arrive d if we wanted a side, (no sides on the menu), turns out the side dishes are... bread. That's it.

All drinks came in dirty smudged glasses. Sat outside on veranda for drinks after but had to wait 10 minutes for a drink to come after ordered.

Great location and decor, very pleasant staff. But inexcusable how expensive yet crap the food was, plus slow service and dirty items. Not impressed at all.

Won't be returning to upstairs (but the walk-up drinks area on the beach is fine, quicker service and larger portions of better (and hot) food for half the price!).

My husband and I often have coffee or lunch here on the deck. The staff are great, particularly the very efficient young waitress Lola, who often serves us with a smile!
Keep up the good work!
