Pleasant cafe style eatery at Borde Hill Gardens in West Sussex. Quite busy with people who were obviously local but we managed to get a table for two without a prior booking. Fairly restricted menu but all seemed good quality.

This is a nice place to stop and eat before or after a walk in the gardens. Its not cheap but quality is good so it's worth it. The vegetarian pancakes were wonderful. This place is child friendly.

Spent a lovely evening here celebrating a relatives birthday. Booked whole café, although it felt more like a top quality restaurant than cafe. Staff smart & friendly, very efficient, yet somehow remained in the background, excellent. Food terrific, certainly recommend.
