On a recent visit to Highdown Gardens decided to pop in here for a coffee but once inside couldn’t resist the look of the cakes and I wasn’t disappointed. Lovely coffee, cakes like your gran used to make and all at a very reasonable price,...More

We usually after our walk from angmering over highdown have coffee and cake here. Had not been for a while and we wondered if the place changed hands. Coffee was lifeless and horrible. Cake was stale. Our glasses for water need definitely to be thrown...More
