“Duncan Ray is one of the UK’s best but relatively unsung chefs”, say fans of his “small but perfectly formed” Hove 20-seater. “He continues to put 100% into improving the entire offer, not just the omakase-inspired tasting menu” (fish-centric, and entirely prepared by the aptly named Ray) “which is more sophisticated and delicious than ever, but also refurbished surroundings and a new front-of-house team”.

“Just off the front in a charming maze of streets in Hove”, Duncan Ray’s small 20-seater is “a cute spot with no fine dining trappings to make you feel awkward”. He is at the stoves alone, creating an ever-changing five-course menu of sustainable seafood: “just gorgeous fish cookery from raw to grilled – not hugely fancy, just brilliantly conceived and executed”.

“Fish so fresh that it’s almost swimming onto the plate is treated with the utmost care, and served in beautiful combinations that show it off to its best advantage” at Duncan Ray’s “intimate” 20-cover venue – “one to seek out in Hove”. “First class service” too (“couldn’t have been more helpful and flexible with my various food likes/dislikes and the end result was excellent”). “If this place was in London, you’d never get a table (as it is, it’s tough!)”

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"Food tremendous, though service a little slow. High points: ray with green curry sauce; bream with onion sauce and lobster. Chocolate dessert outstanding. Highly recommended."
