A rainy Sunday, a chance return to this small, untrumpeted cafe/restaurant. Two of us arrived just after noon, before they were officially due to start serving lunch. Most of the tables were occupied by Lewesians finishing their mid-morning coffee. We were made very welcome, promptly...More

Always busy, always friendly and food always of a great quality, it’s a genuinely tragedy that it will permanently close September 1st.

What a fantastic meal. Delicious food, delightful staff and enjoyed by us all. Whilst we ate so many people were turned away as it was fully booked so I would recommend making a reservation. Great ambience and many happy people

Group of 7 for the set price dinner - great value at £18.50 for 3 courses. The choices were all tasty. Moules for starter were nice and creamy. The main course fish was well cooked and not just batter. Puddings were well presented and scrummy....More

Sitting outside on a sunny day with bowls of mussels in a beautifully creamy sauce with proper frites and a carafe of white wine and good friendly service - what more can a couple want? They provide a good varied menu not spoiled by the...More
