The Stoneham

A family-run gastropub in the heart of Hove, The Stoneham is the perfect setting for a cosy Christmas dinner. For the ultimate merrymaking experience? Enjoy Norfolk Bronze turkey, homemade mince pies and baked camembert in front of the roaring open fire.


Making quite a name for Sunday roasts, it's no surprise that Sidewinder also comes in strong on the Christmas lunch front. A Kemptown favourite, this venue has a laid-back space to delve into a feast, suitable for vegans and carnivores alike, with all the trimmings.

Boasting some of the prettiest interiors around, Six is the perfect restaurant for a Christmas day dinner in Hove for 2023. Grab your nearest and dearest to get merrymaking at this flower-adorned Western Road eatery with its menu of vegan roasts and gourmet desserts.

Hove Place

Hove Place offers much more than your standard gastro fare come Christmas lunchtime. Serving up a stunning selection of dishes for you and your fellow feasters, you'll find butter-roasted cod loin and free-range turkey with golden tatties, glazed carrots and thick gravy.
