“A nice find”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Went here by chance, had very nice homemade slightly spicy celeriac soup and granary roll.The other customers around us were eating substantial homemade meals which looked very good.Also lovely views across rooks although we didn't go around bird sanctuary on this occasion.We intend to go again.

“Not only Birds!”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

It was their open day when we arrived and there were lots of stalls selling a variety of crafts. Butterflies were in abundance and several of us were chasing them round the Buddleias to photograph them!
This site is in a lovely setting overlooking far reaching fields and hills. All the staff we met were knowledgeable and helpful and delighted to talk about recent sightings. The walks to the various hides were well laid out and accessible to wheelchairs too. The hides were full of photos of various birds to aid identification.
We had lunch in the restaurant, sitting outside and enjoyed our food which was of a high quality and plentiful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

“Peaceful Place”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

I discovered Pulborough about eighteen months ago when I got interested in ornithology. It really is a great way to observe nature in a terrific environment. Not only have I seen many different species I have walked around the reserve and discovered the peace of the place. The restarant is great and do lovely sandwiches and some of it's customers use it just to eat and meet people. The staff are great and help a lot to either get a better view or identify species. Many young people go there to pond dip and get a better appreciation. A fantastic place to go

“Great family fun day, incl pond dipping and crafty stuff”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Visited pulborough brooks with two toddlers on a special 'watery fun day' which i would thoroughly recommend. Lots of rspb people around to answer questions / help spot. could hire binoculars. Kids took part in organised pond dipping and making dragon flys. Nice place to walk about although not overly buggy friendly. Play area and inside learning area's well laid out, with a fab tunnel for kids to run around in. Great place to go to spot birds, large area with well laid out trails. Would suit older children better on a normal day. Cafe, shop and changing facilities all good.

“You NEED to know about birds”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

OK, so that sounds a bit obvious a heading but having visited Bentley, that is the sort of thing I expected here.
Lots of hides, loads of walking, plenty of seating, not enough info on the way round.
Helpful staff in the shop and restaurant.
The restaurant have an outside seating area and the food is good and reasonably priced.
There is a play area. Good amount of parking.
This is for very enthusiastic bird watchers and on our walk around we had to stop at times, tiptoe or stop talking to allow those with the large binoculars and telescopic lensed cameras to appreciate what I wish I knew.
A good walk on a warm day with a good lunch was had.
