I am a regular customer of the Hungry guest as everything about it is excellent. The food is very good but most importantly the staff are wonderful. Friendly and professional. It is my favourite coffee shop and can only highly recommend it.

We have been using this cafe for some years and it's always been great. We have eaten there on a number of occasions breakfast lunch and afternoon tea. Unfortunately it has gone rapidly downhill. Service slow and staff distracted. Breakfast small, soggy bread, tepid food,...More

After exploring Petworth House (National Trust) we popped into the gorgeous village to have lunch. As we walked past this establishment it looked very inviting, so in we went. Decor is contemporary and it’s light and airy. Good menu available including a specials board. Mum...More
