The food was excellent but can add no more positive comments. Fawlty towers without the humour. Too many tables, too few staff, coffee you had to queue an age as no table service. Not returning!!More

Nestled in Worthing’s stunning Beach House Park, Palm Court Pavilion is a stylish, beautifully renovated café-bistro in the park’s Old Pavilion. Located just minutes from the town centre and the seafront, we serve delicious homemade food and offer a range of options for functions and events. The café marks an exciting new chapter in the Pavilion’s history. After some years in disuse, the old Pavilion building has been given a brand new lease of life with a sympathetic renovation emphasising natural light inside, while taking advantage of the lovely open-air spaces of the surrounding park outside. Large open-air decking areas have been created so that you can enjoy the beautiful, peaceful setting. The outside spaces are also available for hire for private parties and functions.
