Love visiting this iconic building we had been for a long walk and popped in for tea, the views of the sea are stunning from the restaurant and food and service is good and well priced!

We had popped into Northampton for a quick explore at the end of a long weekend away and were attracted by this quirky building, so different from other architecture in the vicinity. I think Littlehampton seems to be a place that welcomes innovation within its pleasant sea side terraces so good for Littlehampton! It was a blustery grey Sunday morning,... More

Very disappointed! Lots of hype surrounding the "Design Awards". Some may find the shape of the building "interesting" from the outside, however, step inside and the "design" stops there! It's bland and very cold-looking. No continuation of a seaside atmosphere. Could do with some interesting artifacts i:e: marine-style objects like shells, fishing nets, lobster pots for example instead of plain... More

Situated opposite a very pebbly part of Littlehampton beach, next to handy pay and display car park at the eastern terminus of the seasonal road train which follows a painted white line on the promenade to the Harbour Park Amusements. If anyone wrote a book on Road Trains in UK and Europe, the Littlehampton one would probably be rated one... More

Right on the seafront wall, a sit down service cafe/restaurant where the burgers were very tasty, brioche bun, bacon, blue cheese - loved it! Happy to pop back some time

The one positive thing about this over-hyped cafe is that the staff are friendly. The food was basic and 3 of the more popular dishes were off the menu for some reason. I had mussels which were huge, but tasteless. Some others had fish and chips which they said were fairly basic and much smaller portions than they were expecting.... More

We went there as a family for lunch and were seated quickly by a lovely member of the team and the food was fantastic. I had the squid as a main, my daughter had the children's sausage & chips and my hubbies had the kedgeree. All the food was super quality, we were served quickly and efficiently and quickly but...

We had never eaten here before but friends had a voucher so 6 of us went for dinner on a Friday night. The deal was a 2-course dinner for 2 with a glass of wine for £29.00. Unlike other deals, we had the full choice of the menu and there was no stinting on portion sizes. All our main courses... More
