We booked the restaurant for an evening with 12 friends, the evening was great, the food was fantastic, particularly the lamb for main. The venue is intimate but big enough to have a good atmosphere, the staff were attentive but also gave us time to...More

Boutique cafe with a unique decorative style. Small, interesting menu all cooked to order. So be prepared to wait a little while. This results in a plate that satisfies the eye as well as the appetite. If just popping in for a coffee and cake,...More

Toms is a small boutique restaurant, quality food and a lovely setting what’s not to like. It’s a rare find to have this kind of great food and a menu that changes with seasonal foods etc

During the day I am open as an amazing cafe in the heart of Cuckfield. I serve brunch and lunch specials all day. I serve the best coffees around a good selection of teas and soft drinks including healthy fresh juices. Tom's Food also has an alcohol license so why not have a glass of wine! In the Evenings I cook for private groups up to 12 people, minimum 6. This is a set menu for £30 and is pre booked.
