Lovely food, tea and an aura of quintessentially British. This was the first time that I visited. It felt like taking a step back in time (in a good way). The friendly, courteous staff were professional and perfectly complimented the overall experience.

Cockburn's is a traditional tea room, restaurant and confectioner situated in the historic 17th century surroundings of Knockhundred Row, Midhurst. As well as our quintessentially English Afternoon Teas, we offer a comprehensive lunch menu of seasonal British inspired dishes - favourites like our Sussex Rarebit, or our Homemade Pies or our freshly prepared sandwiches. Our aim is to provide an environment where our guests can take a break from the flurry of modern life, and enjoy a leisurely dining experience in timeless surroundings. Although booking is not essential, it is advisable during our lunch period. Our Traditional Afternoon Tea served on a three tier cake stand, is available by reservation only.
