Wolfies of Hove
Here is where you can find the best fish and chips in Hove! A full range of gluten and dairy-free choices are available at Wolfies, with fresh fish sourced from sustainable sources.
There is a decent selection of food, a lot more refined than a chippy menu, but not too fancy that it would turn diners away. I much prefer the menu over the discoloured, grimy signs along the harbour.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to experience British cuisine. Try Wolfies of Hove’s specially prepared salted beef, potato pies, plus fish and chips. The bagels here are tasty too!
Food made with fresh ingredients
The restaurant is the only one in town that offers gluten-free batter, which makes them very dedicated. To prevent cross-contamination, there is even a dedicated fryer, a pretty impressive feature for foodies.
Wolfies’ batter has something similar to tempura – the taste and texture are almost similar. It comes as no surprise why Wolfies was voted The Best Free-From Eating Out in 2015.
I don’t have to blather on forever about the pleasure of fish & chips. The cod was perfectly cooked – it was soft, succulent, and didn’t break apart in tough bits as a poorly cooked fillet would. A small portion was around the size of a brick, and the batter was the best I’ve ever eaten.
A large portion of the potatoes used to make the chips come from farms in the Hove area. It’s crispy and delicious with the perfect amount of crunch.
We were served hand-peeled chips and a piece of fish in cardboard trays. Both had barely any oil and were extremely hot.
A homemade pie I ordered was also good, since the pastry was buttery and crisp, which provided a nice counterpoint to the creamy filling. The meal was nothing like every other chippie I’ve ever eaten.
A fun foodie adventure
While waiting for our food on the bench, a member of the staff told me that next door I could purchase a bottle of wine since the shop was licensed. In no time at all, we were sipping on crisp white wine and enjoying Wolfies’ delicious food.
I have never tasted better Fish and Chips, and the homemade pies are much better than what is usually found at chip shops. In addition to the amazing food and sustainable sourcing, the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. I’d say it was a real treat to be able to enjoy all of that with a bottle of wine at a reasonable price, plus no BYOB fees involved.
The best fish and chips in Brighton & Hove! We pride ourselves on traditional food.
