I visited this cafe with my mum and my sister. My mum had a jacket potato cooked to perfection, she was happy (that was the main thing!!!) The service was very good and the staff were courteous. The food was of a very high standard, compliments to the chef. My sister and I had a cream tea, the scones were... More

I've been using this cafe for several years with a regular group of friends and we have all agreed that it has gone downhill. The quality of the food is not what it was, the food presentation is poor and consequently it is not always the value for money that it used to be. A cold sandwich should be cut... More

Have visited this cafe on various occasions and at different times of the day. Perfect to pop in for a quick coffee or for a lunchtime snack. Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, good wholesome food, although sometimes busy (always a good sign) worth the wait! Would recommend if visiting Hayling..

I have found this a very child friendly place and the food is lovely, we have sat both inside and outside, we have never felt hurried or rushed and the staff has always been very friendly and helpful.

During our trip to Hayling Island, we had great lunch at Chives. The place was quite busy at lunch time. We had gammon steak, scampi and chips and their afternoon cream tea. Good food, good service. Highly recommended.

Always clean and tidy even when busy.The service is fast and whatever you order is of good quality.Admittedly the prices have risen recently but with Chives it really is a case of you get what you pay for.

Having looked at the menu outside of the Chichester Chives restaurant I was quite looking forward to enjoying the cottage pie with vegetables with a choice of either salad or chips.....I chose cottage pie with chips which duly arrived but without any veg. I asked the waitress where my veg was and she replied you can have either chips or... More

Always seems to be open and have to say that I've always had good food. Service is friendly and I would give 5/5 if it wasn't for that wincing moment when your told the bill
