11. The Ginger Pig
3 Hove St, BN3 2TR
Part of chef Ben McKellar’s ‘ginger’ restaurant group, this stylish Hove gastropub wins hearts and stomachs with its chatty staff and excellent modern British menu. Dishes change with the season but think braised oxtail with lentil ragu or smoked haddock accompanied by a rich mussel and bacon chowder. Plenty of choice by the glass and carafe on the globe-trotting wine list.
