Finally got a seat

You need a reservation here, even midweek! We are not good at preplanning so have missed out a lot. We got a seat and found out why it's so busy, food and value excellent.

Thank you for your excellent review of Tides following your recent visit. We always encourage guests to book in advance as the majority of the time we are fully booked and it is such a shame to turn away potential guests who drop by on the off chance. With the nice weather forthcoming (we hope!) we will have plenty of... More

Turned up to Tides for a bite to eat - to be told that I was in the "brunch" phase. This meant the time between breakfast (which stops at 11.30) & lunch (which starts at noon)- so only coffee & cakes such as scones available. Also, did nt get a particularly warm welcoming as got the feeling that they were... More

Thank you for your review of Tides. The reason we stop serving our full breakfast menu at 1130am is because we are fully booked most lunchtimes from 12pm onwards, as you can see from the above review "Finally got a seat". We would always prepare a light bite or sandwich during this half hour period but sometimes it can be... More

This is a little gem of a restaurant, only a couple of km's from Goring seafront. It serves only the freshest food, that has so much flavour; whether having breakfast, lunch or dinner. I've eaten here numerous times when visiting my Mum & it's her favourite eatery in Worthing. The breakfast here is simply superb & Mum says, the theme... More

We did not actually get served. We sat outside on the provided seats at a table, for 25 minutes the waitresses just kept looking at us from indoors and ignoring us. We walked off. If one has to go inside to get served (really? its a restaurant, table service is a fundamental) then one of them should have come out... More

It would be interesting to know when you visited Tides, as there have not been many days recently nice anough to sit outside. If we or any of our staff see anyone sit outside we go out to them unless they come in to us first, it may take a few minutes if we are busy but we don't ignore... More

Oh yes--- from the warm friendly welcome, the moreish latte, the good quality cutlery and serviettes, to the scrummy, generous veggy breakfast, and the table sauce in little dishes...not sachets.... we are so pleased we went to Tides. Hubby had full English, and said the bacon and sausage were delicious too. We had to eat and run today, but next... More

We have been several times - after having heard that this small and un-imposing restaurant was one of the local treasures. Each time we have loved it - and cannot fault the food, the service, the friendliness of the staff or the atmosphere. The tables are not too close together, but it feels homey. We have tried breakfast, lunch and... More
