I've taken a point off as they don't allow dogs inside the cafe (I so wish they did) but it's a lovely place with good home cooking. The park is great for everyone - tennis, walking, table tennis, bowls, children's play area, peaceful sensory garden, pond, wild spots etc.

Great park and gardens with nice cafe. Has a sectioned off scented garden area too. Not far from town centre and usually has good spring bulbs show.

Good standard park cafe, clean etc. But almost everytime I've been in there's been loud kids.... Guess that's what you get on the edge of a playground lol. Good for young mums I expect.

These gardens are very nice to walk through and sit in on a sunny day. There is a good play area for the youngsters. It is a shame that the bowling green has now gone as it was nice to sit and watch this in the summer. The cafe is good for what it is but could do with some... More

As my title suggests this cafe is unbeatable for a coffee and a cake any time of the year when the sunshine is out and the park is buzzing. Don't be fooled by the exterior the cakes this place makes are first class and most are homemade, coffee is a little ropey but then what do you expect. A great... More

The friends of St Ann's Wells Festival in the Spring is particularly special attracting thousands to the live music, live arts, dance, crafts, stalls, food, drinks, and general fun of the Hove area. It is great all year round whether for the large Kids play park, a walk with dogs in the fields, spotting the squirrels, a walk through the... More

A great place to call into and good selection of café food and drinks - however surprisingly they are not dog friendly inside and will make dog walkers sit outside which is not a lot of fun when its cold. Given the amount of dog walkers in the area and how large the place is inside would have thought they... More

It doesn't have to be summer to enjoy this type of place. Nice to have such a place close to the city centre and not too far out. Take a visit!

Love this park, one of our local ones so visit often. Well kept gardens & has a good play park. The cafe serves good food that caters for all. It's a shame some of the staff don't look happy to be working there. I see they get irritated with loud children. I'd recommend the cakes & coffee to everyone!
