The Very Quaint Poets Ale and Smoke House Pub in Hove, East Sussex

It was a little outing for Tina’s birthday and the very first time we had been here. We had seen some awesome food on Instagram coming out of the kitchen, so decided it was time to visit. Food was served from midday, so we arrived bang on midday. 

On Sundays and during busier times, we would advise booking a table to avoid disappointment.

We were joined by some of Tina’s family to celebrate her birthday.

Hmmmm, decisions. With so much choice, I decided to leave my comfort zone of a burger and instead opt for the foot long chill-ay hot dog. Not quite knowing if it would be a proper sausage or a frankfurter. As you can see, I was not disappointed. You hear about the perfect sausage having that ‘snap’ as you bend it. Well… this was one of those dogs.

Being one to not be overly keen on mess, ate as much as I could with a knife and folk before I was satisfied enough that using fingers would not result in using half a pack of baby wipes.

The only problem, was the fact that 1/3 of my hot dog was hanging out the ends of the bun. It would have great if the bun accommodated the whole sausage.

Tina loved her smoked meat, and was not going to miss the opportunity to sample the ribs on offer.

They just fell off the bone, the tenderness of the meat was delightful. Along with there homemade coleslaw and skin on fries. The portions are huge and certainly not requiring you to have dinner in the evening that’s for sure.

Parking around here is pretty much permit holders only, however, you can find the odd pay and display parking if you are lucky.

Failing that, you are about 5-10 minutes way away from one of the major bus routes in Brighton and Hove.
