“Great service .. but slow .. visited 14/08/12”

Lovely, bright and airy, great pics on the wall. Varied menu for all tastes. Hubby and I popped in for snack. We were one of three tables of customers at the time, so a bit surprised that our order of chorizo, olives and baguettes and a round of sandwiches hadn't arrived after a 20 minute wait (by which time we had finished our pots of tea).
Disappointed to be told my choice of egg mayonnaise was unavailable, it took 20 mins to be made aware of that?
However, the food that we did have (chose salmon as alternative) was excellent.
I love to have a lazy lunch, but find 30 minute wait for sandwiches uacceptable.

“A Lovely Bright and Welcoming Cafe!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

Having had a long journey to get to Arundel for a day's walk, my friends and I were desperate for a drink and a little morsel of something as it had been a long time since breakfast. We chose to sit in very comfortable easy chairs and look out of the window. We all had some really delicious cake and a drink. The ladies who served us were very pleasant. The place is well set up for children - there were a few toys and the changing facilities in the ladies were excellent, complete with a step stool for young children to reach the washbasin. The decor of the cafe was very relaxing. I will certainly return there on another visit as the coffee and cake were so good.

“Lunch at Gaskyns”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2012

Arriving hungry in the lower car park, Gaskyns was the first opportunity to escape the incessant rain. Nice spot, friendly staff in a pleasant contemporary environment. Decent value, nice food & good choice, with children well catered for. I was slightly disappointed with the size of my welsh rarebit - but overall we were impressed and would visit again.

“Well Worth A Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

This cafe is slightly out of the town centre and could be missed if you don't know about it. It is in an interesting old building and has a calm, relaxing atmosphere.There is some sort of young childrens' club early on weekday mornings so this is the only time it's best not to go. The staff are polite and helpful.There is a pleasant sunny garden at the back.Some of the meals are not very filling but are prepared to a high standard. A good place to go at weekends or when the rest of the town is busy.
