You can guarantee good food here whatever you choose! Upstairs is rooftop outside covered over with glass. Unfortunately for non smokers this is ruined by 2/3 given to smokers. Real shame as this is the only place left in East Grinstead with a sunny outside. So I have to reduce the 5 stars to 3 stars. But food is still... More

CJ's is fast becoming a local institution the owners care passionately about the place and so do the locals - the food and atmosphere is well worth the visit. Elis they often have live music. say goodbye to the sterile national chain eateries there should be a CJ's on every high street.

Decided to take my daughter and rest of my family to CJs for her 19th birthday after visiting once previously and liking the general atmosphere. Everything started ok until the food was brought to the table. I looked at my sons fish and chips and immediately told the young chef (or assistant) that the piece of fish was not acceptable...

Beware if your visiting here with kids as a member of staff was very rude and aggressive towards me. I visited here with my 2 children and their 2 cousins so 4 children in all. We decided to go upstairs to an outside area which was totally empty making us the only ones there. The children were exploring and just... More

Love CJ's, always a lovely atmosphere in there. Plenty of comfy leather sofas and cushions on benches round tables, feels very bohemian. Great roof terrace for sunny days, although they have just added a glass roof which spoils it in my opinion - I want to sit in the sun properly, not roast under glass! But won't put me off... More

We had breakfast here on both days that we stayed at the adjoining Gothic House hotel as it was included. Although we couldn't have got better for miles around. The food was cooked to order from fresh produce and delivered to our table hot and pleasantly presented and was delicious. And the coffee was very nice too. During the afternoons/evening... More
