We decided to return to this cafe as we were close by at another attraction - we first had lunch here a few years ago on a day trip to Rye. We were thrilled to see that the door-step sandwiches were still on the menu...More

Staff are lovely, food was amazing (door stop fresh bread). We popped in around 12:30. One of us had a breakfast, the other a sandwich and the other just a slice of cake. We all had teas and coffees (1 with soya milk).

Food is always good with excellent service from the friendly staff. It is situated at Strand Quay near the car park. The sandwiches are great large enough to last all day.

The Old Grain Store is always a definitive on our holiday itinerary for breakfast. A very warm welcome, always a bonus to get a seat outside. I would recommend the amazing full English breakfast and for the afternoon there is a selection of delicious cakes...More

They don't have much of an online presence, I would call them or pop in in person if possible.
