Just excellent.
To my taste, best place in Brighton to relax and enjoy lazy afternoons, feed squirrels and chat
to regulars and friendly staff.

Thank you for your kind words. We try and encourage a laid back ambiance at the cafe with our loyal staff and customers. The squirrels as you mention are now becoming a feature in the gardens and at the cafe.

A special place to watch the world go by, eat lovely food, and listen to great music - bands, individual artists and singers. And ..... With a great view of the Royal Pavilion.

There is nowhere better to sit on a sunny day than in Pavilion Gardens, looking at the world go by. The best view of the Pavilion for the price of a cup of tea and a delicious cake. We want to keep it just the way it is. Don't let the Council move it or close it down!
