We had book afternoon tea with our groupon voucher, we were made very welcome, we had a choice of sandwiches and tea, the sandwiches were very good with excellent filling in thick brown bread. A great selection of cakes, large scones with jam and cream, you are challenged to eat all of this meal! Worth travelling miles for.

The cosy outdoor garden is what fist attracts one to this place.Once inside the menu is varied and of good European cuisine.Everything is freshly prepared and tasty. The service is rather slow but the staff is in good humour and polite. Pleasant homely atmosphere the space is arranged in such a way that you can hold a conversation.

Brilliant afternoon here. Had a belated birthday treat for my mum. The service was amazing. Very kind and friendly. Spoilt for choice. Very generous portions. All fresh and home made . Beautiful setting and the outside seating area will be amazing in the summer .

We had a sandwich and the most delightful hot chocolate. Our Golden Retriever was welcomed at the restaurant. Will come back for a breakfast! The rear garden area is bigger than you think and will be a delightful place to go for breakfast or coffee in the spring summer.

Just as you come into Brighton on the A23 you and stop here for a meal - there is usually a free parking space nearby. Breakfast can be meaty with 'real' sausages and bacon or vegetarian. Lunch has daily specials but my favourite is the massive ploughman's lunch. Home made cakes for afternoon tea. Beautiful old building and garden if... More

Lovely afternoon tea for my daughters 18th birthday. Attentive, professional service in a lovely little cafe. Savouries were delicious, loved the scones! My only criticism is that the cakes, although lovely, didn't match the standard of the savouries. Would recommend for lunch and/or a cream tea. 🙂

Booked this venue for a friends babyshower as I quite often pop in for coffee. Owners very accommodating & friendly and afternoon tea was amazing! Paid £15pp & included tonnes of delicious sarnies plus scones & cakes. We hired it at 2pm on a Sunday which meant we had exclusive use..also chilled bottles of prosecco on offer which were so...

We sought out this place based on the reviews of others, and were delighted. We needed a warming lunch after a cold hockey match, and the hearty soup and beautifully prepared sandwiches were just the job. The ingredients were fresh and very tasty, and the owner and her daughter very welcoming. Among the quests I have in life are finding... More
