A couple with fussy eating 5yr old and 1yr old came for lunch, in short we'd come back. Nice staff - pleasant, nice food (beer battered fish chips & peas; jacket potato; pasta) - well cooked; wine list looked varied; rear wall adorned with amusing plaques of world wisdom "never get so busy making a living that you forget to...

I am really disappointed to say my lasagne was very dry (could not see any sign of the bechamel sauce) and not very warm.... More

If she knows what's good for her that's where she'll be. This is no ordinary cafe. It's the best cafe in East Sussex. The full English comes with a poem read by the owner. The tea and coffee are locally sourced. No mean feat I can tell you.

If you're in Camber at any time I would highly recommend this place. It also catered well... More
