Reviewed 3 June 2014

New Cafe, situated at the YHA at Itford (Southease), East Sussex.
There is parking on the A26 and also within the courtyard of the YHA
We planned our walk to Firle Beacon to start and stop here, just because there was a cafe that we could have a welcome tea/coffee after our walk

This is a nice cafe that does meals as well as tea and cake. The prices were as you would expect for a cafe situated right on the South Downs Way. The staff were really helpful and the cream tea I ordered came with a huge scone, jam, clotted cream and a ramekin of chopped up strawberries - fabulous! The tea was nice too!

There is a nice outdoor area with a large grass area and water bowl for the mutt.

As we had a dog, we were re-directed around and into the bottom gate, it would be helpful if there was more signage to this gate (and maybe make the gate easier to open)

Will definitely visit again, even if not going for a Sunday walk
