“Absolutley awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Had this dive of a cafe recommended to us by a family friend. It is old jaded smelly and dirty and thats before I start on the food. The breakfast on paper looks good value, that is until its put in front of you. I would say the griddle needs a good clean then maybe the bacon would be minus the black bits. Poor quality sausage, eggs just awful add the lukewarm beans and you begin to get the picture. We quietly complained and were told everyone else loved it. I guess its different strokes for different folks. This is a cafe on a parade of shops and even by todays standards most estate cafes have upped their game alas not this one it is stuck somewhere between the 70's and 80's. I will say the menu is quite comprehensive and cheap but it even that looked like a chinese takeaway menu gone wrong. We visited on a Friday morning and apart from one other we were the only customers so really it should have been perfect. We visit family on a regular basis in horsham one thing for sure we won't eat here again.

“Best greasy spoon I've been to!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

If you're in the horsham area, starving, and are looking for a quality full english then you have to get to Roffey Griddle. I look forward to going every time I go down there. It's cheap, the portions are massive, service is quick, and the place is clean. You get a nice big mug of strong tea too. A must go to for the greasy spoon connoisseur!

“When you fancy a fry up but can't be bothered”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We live about 1/2 mile from the Griddle and sometimes on a Sunday morning you feel like a cooked breakfast but you don't feel like cooking one so its ideal to pop down. Its basic, you get odd mugs of tea, the seats are vinyl but does what you'd expect: Its clean and it provides what we need. I wouldn't expect anyone to travel more than 3 miles for it.
Don't expect gormet, but you ain't paying for it either!

“Excellent breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

Its cheap, tasty, quick and its clean, what more do you want for a breakfast place? theres no bells or whistles here, you order, get your food, eat and you go. For the price you will get the basic breakfast with the basic sausages, you wont get proper tescos finest sausages but its more like the tescos value type. I've been coming here for years when i lived in horsham and still now that Ive moved away, its still just as good. The extracter fan could do with a bit of a clean (or a new one?) though, as I do come out smelling like a chippy after..but this is a.small price to pay.
