Have eaten here a couple of times, lunch and brunch. The eggs benedict were lovely while hubby had the M&B big breakfast...all cooked to perfection with decent sausages and bacon...couldn't fault any of it. Staff are friendly, efficient and hard working...great place to eat!

having just arrived in Arundel we were lookig for somewhere for tea. Lots of people were having lunch (which looked very good) but we had a pot of tea and scones. The scones were really good with home made jam and a big pot of tea. just what we needed.

We were staying right opposite this cafe so walked past it many times, it was always busy. We managed to find a (shared) table near the entrance and although we only had a mid afternoon snack the food came quickly, was tasty and a reasonable price. Staff were all friendly and very light and airy, nice place to take a break

Hubby and I wanted a cream tea and we checked a few places nearby. The reason we chose Motte & Bailey was that they had their scones on display in the window and they looked SOOOO good - and large! Instead of having two cream teas we decided to share a cheese scone followed by a cream tea scone. The cheese scone was delicious, really tasty and the fruit scone was great too. The service was very good. Only two slight niggles - no hot water provided with pot of tea for two so we couldn't top the pot up for extra cuppas. There was a good amount of clotted cream but not enough jam for us. I asked for extra and I'm pleased to say it was happily and speedily provided. In hindsight, I don't know why I didn't ask for a jug of hot water, d'oh! Anyway, we really enjoyed our cheesy/cream tea and would definitely visit again.

Had a great tapas meal with 8 friends recently, customer service is great and the staff were very knowledgeable about all ingredients for those of us that had intollerances/allergies. Soo yummy, looking forward to coming back soon
