Located on the scenic edge of the swoon-worthy Lagoon, The Gather Inn is one of our favourite restaurants on Hove's seafront. This eatery is not just a pretty face, as it also has a menu filled with artisanal stone-baked pizzas and succulent burgers to enjoy with the water views.

Steven Edwards' etch. is one of Hove's most high-end spots. With a simple tasting menu set-up on offer every month, take a seat inside its industrial-tinged interiors and dig into 5, 7 or 9 plates of innovative European cuisine, complemented by quaffable tipples.

Cool, friendly and home to some seriously good plates of pasta, Semola is a neighbourhood spot worth visiting. With fresh grub whipped up on-site every day, you can dig into plates, including linguine Pomodoro or authentic stonebaked pizzas. Yum.

Laidback and quaint, Wild Flor is a haunt for those of you who love quaffing wine in a relaxed setting. Get ready for carefully matched bottles alongside seasonal plates, from glazed beef brisket and pea risotto to an oh-so-sweet strawberry and elderflower pavlova.
