Very Nice place for lunch

Came across this place while looking for the bank on Hayling Island. Went in for lunch. Staff very helpful. My daughter didn't want what was on the menu, so the chef was happy to accommodate her requirement. We will definitely go back again soon.

Recent spent a weekend in Hayling Island and walked into Mengham, which was not far from our accommodation. Chives is situated in a one way area of the main road through the village and has seating outside as well as in. It is a licensed Cafe, and has a good selection of sandwiches/jacket potatoes/Ploughmans lunches and main meals. Which several... More

Street Cafe in Mengham with outside and inside tables. Friendly staff and efficient service. Visited twice in 2 days, different staff as it was bank holiday, once for cream tea and the second day for a late breakfast. Both days, good food as a good price.

Visited with friends on Valentine's day just for coffee, nice comfortable chairs served by a really pleasant lady. What more do you require. Will visit every time we go to Hayling Island.

My wife and I have changed to having our midday drinks &/or food at Chives as it appears to be under new ownership from the last time we went in there when it wasn't so good. However, now their hot/cold drinks and the standard of food out of their kitchen has improved enormously and is scrumptious!! We gladly recommend a... More

If its beige watery boiling hot milk in a mug with a dirty spoon, advertise it as such, not as a latte!

The food was of a very high standard, compliments to the chef. My sister and I had a cream tea, the scones were... More
