Went for an evening meal my husband and I. The meal was OK nothing to shout about, I wasn't wowed. Waitress forgot about us and had to wait a long time for drinks. Don't think I will worry about going back.

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Motte & Bailey Cafe Trip Advisor page. Motte & Bailey Cafe is a traditional Cafe nestled in the heart of historic Arundel. We open at 8.30am every day (except Sunday when we open at 9.00am) to make and serve a delicious selection of breakfasts, brunches, lunches, as well as a selection of teas, coffees, sandwiches, cakes and cream teas. Most of our ingredients are local and all are fresh. We get in early every day to bake our own scones fresh every day! On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening we transform into a delicious Moroccan and Spanish inspired restaurant! On these nights our highly trained chef serves a stunning selection of fresh tapas dishes. We also have a fabulous selection of wonderful wines and gins to complement our dishes! We can promise you wonderful food and a lively (candlelit) atmosphere. We hope to meet you soon!
