Stopped for lunch on the way home after shopping. Ordered sandwiches and tea and everything was very good and fresh. Cakes and scones looked good too. Lovely spot with nice walks around and plenty of free parking. Worth a visit. Recommended.

We have been here a few times after walking the dog and it's always busy. The cake is gorgeous and they sell doggy ice-cream which was a hit with the little furry member of the party. Great place and very quaint.

They overcharged us and would not refund the difference and became nasty when we insisted on the refund. Not going back there again.

Lovely breakfast, sandwiches, cakes and huge tasty scones. This visit was for breakfast and at £7.10 it's possibly the best you'll get in Worthing. The place has a lovely feel, is incredibly dog friendly and is a great way to start or finish a walk...More
