Lovely setting

We had a wander around Alfriston bank holiday Monday as it was a lovely sunny day. Stopped at Moonrakers and sat in the back patio overlooking the green and the beautiful church.

We had afternoon tea in here after an 8 mile walk around the Cuckmere Valley, and the food was delicious, and with really friendly staff.

Much more than a tea room, they also do breakfasts and evening meals in the summer season which we look forward to trying, but popped in for a cream tea today, which can only be described as lovely,with a nice ambience and friendly owners. Oh and gorgeous views from the garden

I wouldn't even step foot through the door, view or not, judging by the signage. Common and tacky. It's got a wif of botch job to it, like we don't care what it looks like we will rely on the view and the building. Looks like they buy pizza from Iceland and call it a tea room. God help us.

Was impressed with the vegan and gluten free options marked on the menu. Could value food, and a lovely view of the church from the garden. Friendly staff- far less rpetentious than other venues nearby!

I'm not normally one to write reviews but I felt that our experience here was so poor others should be informed. From the outside, Moonrakers looks lovely...It has a very cute little garden outside overlooking Alfriston common and the signage makes it look modern and inviting. However, staff were rather unwelcoming and the food we recieved unacceptable. We were camping... More

Came here for a drink this weekend and it was lovely. Sat in the garden with my dog and the woman working there (I believe the owner?) bought the dog some water which was really thoughtful. We ordered tea with scones and it was very traditional and very delicious. It was in such a beautiful location, with a beautiful view... More

Lovely little tea room with spectacular outlook over lawn and very pretty little church. Have been here 3 times now, on my own and also with friends and family. Best coffee around and lovely sandwiches, cakes, scones etc and also very nice light lunches including a good selection of pizzas.
