Dropped in today to treat the kids for being so good at the Remembrance Service and wow did they get a treat. The children's sandwich was presented well for kids (won't spoil it if you go with kids), the portions were spot on for smaller kids as well. Sensible drinks at a sensible price with no bags of sweats or... More

My flat in Queen Street is opposite Gaskyns and, although I am not normally a people watcher (I'm a writer, supposed to be writing!), I love to watch the comings and goings at Gaskyns.Charly runs a great place, assisted by a friendly and helpful team. We especially enjoyed eating in the little garden outside - eating very good food indeed!... More

Nice warm atmosphere including a small secluded garden area. Good varied & interesting menu giving plenty of choice. Service was very friendly if a tad slow but it was Arundel Festival time and very busy. The attached deli is well worth a visit too, Enjoy!

Gaskyns has tasty lunch time food, coffee and cakes menu. Sadly waiting 40 minutes for a sandwich takes the pleasure out of eating it. I prefer to be told before I order that there is likely to be a long wait and therefore make my own decision about whether to wait, rather than when I have had to ask 20... More

Thank you for your review and we are sorry you had a long wait. The Arundel festival is a very busy time and we did have an enormous number of people this year. Although a sandwich in itself does not take a long time to make, it would not be fair to skip orders in order to do the quicker... More

We stumbled across this place on our way to the wetland centre, and decided to have lunch. The food (Welsh rarebit) was nicely presented and well done. I was impressed by the variety of drinks on the menu, this is one way independents can steal a march on the big coffee shop chains by specialising and offering something a bit... More

Dreadful, never been in Gaskyns before thought we would give it a try now I know why there were so few people in it absolutely awful, the coffee was lovely but the noise was terrible it was occupied by a few single mums with their screaming kids, would of walked out without paying but the coffee was nice such a...

This is completely unreasonable! These people came in on an advertised children's activity group morning and expected all of the children to be silent. We are very obviously a child friendly café and the group was already in progress when these people arrived. Our children's groups happen Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and are well advertised the remainder of the... More

We popped in not knowing what to expect but the service was brilliant, they were very welcoming of our children & the place was kitted out well for kids. The service was friendly, menu sounded great and food was tasty.
