Great local Hove pub. Caters for kids and adults. We went during a random evening power cut and the staff were lovely. Kept us informed and to compensate for an oven only pizza/nachos menu bought us a free round of drinks for our family of...More

There is a continued shift in Hove pubs in food quality but right now I have to say the Stoneham is top. The roasts are fantastic and I've always been a fan of there pizzas. The Stoneham is a very child friendly pub and if...More

Fortunate to visit on a sunny day, so had a lovely relaxed lunch sat outside the pub. Inside really did resemble a noisy crèche; I've never seen so many pushchairs in a pub before, but, seated outside, it was completely different, peaceful and laid back....More

Went in here years ago for a drink, before the facelift. It looks better inside but that's the only positive. The changes stop there. Don't bother with the toilets. The first draught drink came out pink and was going to be served until I pointed...More

Good kids menu with gluten free options but no real atmosphere. OK to pop in occasionally after taking kids to nearby Stoneham Park but I certainly wouldn't go out of my way to visit it. Toilets "OK".

They seem to have switched out the vacuous youth for a slightly older more engaged bunch. Much better

Doubt that. It's not about busy. It's about the staff attitude, which is dreadful, and the sneering contempt if you complain, as we did, having not even got our drinks after waiting 45 minutes. Appalling place, horrible... More

The Stoneham is a stylish, family-friendly pub with an exciting new kitchen. We have a lovely garden, front sun terrace and a cool function room for parties. We pride ourselves on our food and have a range of daily specials. We recently launched out own smokehouse, smoking ingredients from garlic and cheeses to meats. Our standard menu is varied with a strong range of choices for vegetarians and carnivores alike. We also offer our famous pizzas in gluten free versions. On Sunday we offer a brilliant range of roasts highlighting local and quality ingredients.
