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.

Visited this friendly cafe and had an excellant lunch. The service was friendly and they were very understanding of my dietary needs. I had a fantastic gluten and dairy free soup and sandwich and my oartner had the normal soup and a sandwich. Both enjoyed our food and the visit. Will return.

This place is on the edge of town just over the river, away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre which can be evident especially at weekends. Service is good, comfortable sofas and the coffee is served hot in large cups/mugs. Newspapers are there for your perusal and you can watch the world go by from the large... More

Very lovely, helpful staff. Great, homemade food. Couldn't recommend highly enough if you have young children. There are toys and a welcoming atmosphere.

Just over the bridge in Arundel is Gaskyns. Well worth leaving the High Street for. Very friendly staff who did just what they were supposed to do - smile and give great service! We had never been there before and had just left a very indifferent café in the High Street after being ignored by the staff. We were resigned... More

The two waitresses seemed rather oblivious and the food took a long time. I reserved a table but when we got there we could not see a menu, thinking these would be bought to us (as some places do) we waited. I eventually had to ask. We ordered simple dishes which took a long time to come and when they... More

On our trip Arundel as we were looking for something to eat, we chanced upon Gaskyns and popped in for a lovely breakfast. Staff were very friendly and the free wifi was much needed. Would recommend the place for a spot of lunch or breakfast.

Light and airy cafe with a small outside courtyard. We both had Tea and a slice of Cake. The Cakes were some of the best we have tasted. The Waitress was very pleasant. When visiting Arundel we will definitely visit Gaskyns again.
