We came for coffee, which was excellent, served in a big mug, and we returned for lunch. I loved the menu, and found it very hard to choose, finally enjoying the pear and stilton welsh rarebit. My friend rated highly her chicken, bacon and avocado sandwich. The people were very friendly, and the service good. The only negative thing I... More

I love hectors shed! I regularly take friends who also love it! The coffee is by far the best in Shoreham and the food is the best with great specials, of which Neil's homemade soup and the mackerel pate being my favourites and the cakes are awesome! The vegan chocolate cake is sublime and I ain't no vegan! The cosy... More

It's a nice looking cafe but it feels a bit dirty. There seems to be a layer of grease and dust over the whole place and though it wasn't busy when we visited, the tables that had been vacated weren't cleared and cleaned. My coffee cup also looked like it hadn't been washed properly so I stopped drinking which was... More

Such a sweet little cafe. Lovely coffee and the walnut bread toasted and served with chunky marmalade is delicious. I just love the decor and furnishings and the retro cosy touches. My fave cafe in Shoreham.

Me and my partner went to Hectors Shed last week and we really enjoyed our time there! The man who was working was so lovely, and very welcoming. We ordered a breakfast which came pretty quick, and was of such good standard after seeing it being made fresh! Was beautiful would definitely recommend!

This place and people who run it are wonderful With so much other anonymous corporate cafes around its so refreshing to still have great local businesses like this. The veggie bomb (even for meat eaters) is great and it's dog friendly too and so Bonnie approves greatly Woof woof.

Had lunch here yesterday (picture included); it was really well presented; the smoked salmon pate was homemade; lovely touch of vegetable crisps on the plate. Portion of lunch was generous too. There was quite a choice of drinks on various notices In the cafe. It's full of lovely touches; like different chairs at the tables. There's also things you can... More
