“Serving up rustic Thai food in a contemporary setting. They have a great choice of Thai culinary treats. With spices imported from Thailand to freshly sourced local ingredients, Giggling Squid surprises with a very unique and nonetheless tasty variety of dishes. Try Thai Green Curry and other original Thai restaurant favourites. And it’s not only seafood, as a great choice of different dishes await – including vegetarian. Enjoy!”

“With an air of a 1920 prohibition den, the Gin Tub Hove is one of Hove’s newest bars and is quickly making a name for itself as the cosiest drinking spot in town - The only phone you’ll need at the Gin Tub will be the one on your table to ring in your order at the bar! With over 60 gins behind the bar the choice seems endless, they even offer boards which comes with 3 measures of gin, 3 tonics, 3 botanicals and 3 nibbles to compliment the gins. ”

“Fatto a Mano translates as “made by hand” and this sums up what they are all about. Being handmade extends beyond the food and relates to their simple and honest approach, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Utilising local ingredients to create traditional Italian dishes, Fatto a Mano, have fused their homeland with their seaside home. The main menu is supplemented by ever-changing specials and all of their dishes are created right in front of your eyes. Fatto a Mano have recently created a gluten free base that is as good as their original and offer vegetarian and vegan options.”
