We were a group of five + one baby and were looked after well. The lunch menu is very restricted (nearly everything featured cheese) but this is often a good sign as it means that food is freshly prepared. Very nice/fresh ingredients used. A small,...More

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.
