Two sandwiches and a soup took an hour to arrive. No apology was given. No one took responsibility and a pitiful refund was offered after we had to wait another 20 minutes in a queue just to pay, which did not make up for it....More

Pleasant cafe style eatery at Borde Hill Gardens in West Sussex. Quite busy with people who were obviously local but we managed to get a table for two without a prior booking. Fairly restricted menu but all seemed good quality.

This is a nice place to stop and eat before or after a walk in the gardens. Its not cheap but quality is good so it's worth it. The vegetarian pancakes were wonderful. This place is child friendly.
