“very disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

Picked this cafe over lots of nice looking places in Arundel. Food was very average, manager was rude, generally not good value for money. The waitress was lovely but that's the only good thing I have to say about it.

“Much better places in Arundel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

We visited today and found the atmosphere tense. We pointed to a table that we wanted to sit at and the lady behind the counter who we assume to be the owner/lady in charge bellowed across the restaurant 'no,not there that is reserved!' A reserved sign was then placed by a waitress who appeared embarrassed and uncomfortable by the situation! The service was painfully slow particularly in light of the fact that we had only ordered a piece of cake and a toasted sandwich! There are so many lovely places in Arundel if it wasn't for the fact this is on the high street it would have closed long ago! We won't be visiting again.

“Undercooked scone”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

Popped in for a cream tea. Possibly the worst one I've ever had. The scone, whilst warm, was undercooked and tasted more like a bread roll. I can't be 100% sure, but I think the cream was just thick double cream rather than clotted cream and the jam was just OK.

Also, the service was a bit rubbish - just slow and disinterested staff.

Wish I'd chosen one of the many other tea rooms in Arundel and had thought to do some research before going so that I could've avoided this place. Very disappointing.

“Runs like clockwork”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

Like the simplistic menu, great service and attention, value for money, clean, sharp, good food. They are really bothered about you, a strict regime for the staff, but a system that works.
