The man leading the young team in this exciting new-generation Brit eatery is a former BBC MasterChef: The Professionals winner, and since he set up shop at the western end of Hove’s main drag in 2017, the cooking has really gathered momentum. The space is cool with its midnight-blue walls, brass-edged tables and open kitchen adding to a buzzy air of all-round vitality. Monthly-changing set menus of five, seven or nine courses have their heart in Sussex produce, and, the palate primed with an umami hit from Marmite brioche with seaweed butter, creative and intricately detailed combos score hit after hit, among them sea bass with cauliflower in various incarnations, apple, capers and shrimps, then outstanding South Downs smoked venison loin, with a crisp samosa of haunch, plus pickled, roasted and puréed squash. As for sweet ideas, cranberry Bakewell tart is matched with cinnamon ice cream, cranberry gel and poached and puréed pear.
