I had often used The Hungry Guest at Petworth to buy bread in particular, but lots more, despite being over priced - no more! In spite of being a regular, the staff are generally un-welcoming and sometimes, like during my visit today, downright rude and...More

Have tried the fish & chips, pizza and salad with crispy lamb. All 3 lunches were delicious, staff friendly and even though it was takeaway only, presented to a high standard and good portion. Thanks!

Maybe the best bacon sandwich ever! Delicious coffee and friendly, efficient staff, coping well given Covid restrictions. Will be back to stock up for our next walk around Petworth Park

The Hungry Guest can be found now as the butcher, an excellent delicatessen, a pop up hamper shop and this cafe. There is an air of excellence around the food, no doubt. But the cafe is rather utilitarian, no frills and no real warmth. If...More
