This restaurant has moved to Burgess Hill in Sussex, and we miss it very much. The staff were really friendly, and the food was well cooked. There was a real 1940's vibe about it. We used to come here quite a lot. Sadly missed !!!

The waitresses are dressed in old fashioned black and white. You are waited upon which is really nice. The choice of food is vast and the food is delicious. Unfortunately they will be moving from there which is a real shame. Fabulous place.

Just learned yesterday that the Nutmeg Tree will close shortly due to the redevelopment of RVP and does not have another site. What a shame! Great little tea room. Where do I get my bacon and sausage baguette now?
