Myself and a friend stopped at Chez Joel for a evening meal. We were greeted with a friendly smile and a real warm welcome. The restaurant is like a little slice of France in the high street. You really do forget you are not actually in France! The menu is amazing and the quality of food is out of this... More

Tasteful traditional setting, pleasant atmosphere, excellent food and coffee in the handsome country town of Steyning. My favourite café in Sussex, and one of my favourites anywhere.

I have been there a good few times and love it. Sarah, the owner is always extremely welcoming and very good fun. They make a huge effort to accommodate different dietary requirements if an appropriate choice is not on the menu and the prices are very reasonable. I love it for lunch or dinner.
