A really pleasant place to have a coffee and meet with friends. Excellent coffee and good cakes, too.

“Coffee. That's it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Went in here for a cup of coffee after our visit to the castle.

The coffee was surprisingly nice for a small town and the teacakes were nice fruity. The interior is quite dates and feels more like a coastal pub rather than a coffee shop. However, the place was full of what appeared to be regular customers (an especially good sign for a tourist destination) and the service was really polite and friendly.

Would recommend a visit if you are only looking for coffee as I am unable to comment on the food (apart from the teacakes, which when toasted are pretty much the same everywhere).

“Best sandwiches in Arundel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We have visited many times as they serve the best sandwiches in Arundel, and we've tried quite a few! Just £3.50 for any filling and you can have as many extras as you want for no extra cost. My favourite is the prawns with Marie Rose sauce, avocado and rocket. Yum! The coffee is very good too. Plenty of seating inside, which is not obvious from the outside - best seats are upstairs on the squashy sofas by the window! Great place for a relaxed lunch.

“Delicious food, great service and fantastic value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

We had lunch here on a busy Bank Holiday weekend, during the Arundel festival. There was far more seating than it appeared from the outside, and we didn't have a problem getting a table. The waitress service was very attentive, and the food was delicious, especially the chocolate cake. We were very pleasantly surprised at the low prices, especially since the food was great. Highly recommend.

“Very good lunch.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Grounds is clearly focused on riendly service and good food and drink. Our server took care to ask how we liked our coffee, in my case very cold iced coffee with no ice cubes in it, then produced it perfectly. We also had a panini and a sandwich, freshly made with flavoursome ingredients, all at very reasonable cost. The cakes looked good too. Lovely service throughout and very good value.
