Winchesea Farm Kitchen Cafe Update!

Have just purchased and eaten in the Winchesea Farm Kitchen shop & cafe and have to say it must have upgraded again reading other critical reports. I was there Sept 2014. WE sat outside with very comfortable rattan style seating and tables. Food coming out of the kitchen looked delightful and we... read more

When we walked in none of the staff said hello, not even a smile. Surroundings and decor superb, staff terrible! We had to hunt for staff to serve us, paper cups, no vegetarian options. What a shame - could be wonderful if they had staff that cared.

We were sorry to hear of your experience upon visiting our shop, however, I would just like to confirm it was in fact our premises you visited, as some of your comments do not appear to make sense to us. We have a full compliment of staff, and there is a bell in the Coffee Shop to make yourself known... More

Visited here hoping for lunch but there was so little available we had to settle for a drink. Service was awful...we were hardly acknowledged and I had to ask if they had a menu. We later witnessed other customers standing at the counter being completely ignored as the waitress made drinks. The waitress didn't know the price of items and... More

We stayed nearby, and this shop was a godsend. Great deli foods, superb local produce, and a brilliantly decorated cafe serving top-class coffee. It was good when it was The Little Shop. It's even better now.

Last year I had a superb lunch with my husband here, so I had no hesitation about stopping again there last week for a tea and cake. I could not believe it when a cup of tea and a latte were served up in PAPER cups, and our cakes served on PAPER plates! When we asked why, we were told... More

In the past we've had good experiences here - lovely light lunches and teas. However, when we visited last Saturday afternoon, we were hoping for a delicious tea in pretty surroundings. Our hopes were dashed - there was only one flapjack left and only crisps or ice cream on offer from the deli. Tea is served in paper cups and... More

Last year we spent many happy tea and cake times here. But a tearoom without china! Paper cups and plates to save on washing up. No pots of tea. Very disappointing.

Well - I for one am delighted by the lack of background music at this delightfully informal shop and tea room. We were luck enough to start a circular walk from Winchelsea on a beautifully sunny morning by having tea, coffee and cakes in the garden of the Farm Kitchen. The dog - a new addition to our family -... More

Butcher shop also within, Walked into back room where the small tea room is, nicely decorated, too cold to be outside so sat at nice table and chairs. Looked good selection... More

Why were the farm kitchen open on Tuesday, 4 February 2014? We walked in and went to the usual room at the back where they serve their beverages etc. Found the room very untidy with boxes all around, no tables set etc. No one around. I decided to find someone to serve us and there was a gentleman in the... More
