“Fine dining experience without a fine dining ambience” – MasterChef: The Professionals winner Steven Edwards continues to cook up a storm at his converted bank in Hove, which offers a choice of five-, seven- or nine-course menus. All reports are of “attention to detail, with a personal touch” resulting in food with “depth of flavour and delicacy that’s a level up from most other such places”. Top Tip – “juice flight for the non-alcoholic drinkers”.

“Right at the top of the vibrant Brighton food scene”, chef Steven Edwards is now earning high acclaim for the tasting menus at his debut venture in Hove. “On our second visit, six courses had grown to eight for the same price – and all were very good”. A former Masterchef: The Professionals winner, Edwards showcases local Sussex produce – “it’s always good to hear him explain the details of the food”.

A stone’s throw from the Hove shoreline, this newcomer – the first solo effort ex-Pass chef Steven Edwards – serves up four, five and eight-course seasonal tasting menus using local Sussex produce. Fans hail “a fantastic dining experience with real attention to detail” and “very accomplished cuisine” – sceptics say that “although professionally executed, the tasting menu simply doesn’t justify its price tag”.
