We've only ever been down here to walk around in the woods and we love it! There's a cracking little play area out the back too for the little ones, a good place to come and get some fresh air for a couple of hours. Made the mistake of visit the cafe once though.... not recommended!!! Took us literally 30... More

This is a lovely, peaceful and wonderful place. We have been three times in the last fortnight and cannot wait to return even though we live some distance away. We are both over 70 but find the paths well maintained and all areas readily accessible. It is worth walking the half mile or so to reach the well positioned hides... More

Excellent dry pathways, viewing platforms and advice available from RSPB volunteers. Even a small cafe to finish with some light refreshment and open views.

We are regular visitors to the RSPB and can not rate the staff highly enough always willing to help and very informative to our many questions. All set in spectacular surroundings

Nice barn attached, which is open to non members for food too. Good crispy bacon rolls, daily lunch specials, generous portions, all home made. Friendly staff and a good view of the bird reserve and the feeders near the windows. Lovely outdoor seating for decent weather.

I really enjoyed my visit to RSPB Pulborough and the short walk I had. Very peaceful and quiet. Lots of birdlife to be seen and hides to be visited. There is a cafe there, I found the coffee to be of good quality and reasonably priced. I would return for another visit in a different season.

Thanks for coming to visit and for your feedback - it's great to hear that you enjoyed the reserve and its wildlife. It's starting to feel a little more like spring now - there are catkins on the trees and the birds are singing. Late April is my favourite time of year as our nightingales arrive. I hope you'll come... More

I have visited Pulborough Brooks many times, to either walk around the reserve or join an event in the evening. Very knowledgeable guides when on an event ( We went on a bat walk one evening) which lived up to our expectations with an interesting start looking at different moths, then a walk around the heathland to listen to the...

Thank you so much for your lovely feedback - it's great to know that you regularly enjoy your visits to Pulborough Brooks. I particularly enjoy the night-time safaris and we'll be starting them again in April this year (beginning with the nightingales and then moving on to moths, bats and nightjars). I hope we'll see you again soon. Thanks again... More

Have been here many times but more often than not simply to meet up with a friend for a coffee. There is lots of outside seating which is great for warmer days with fantastic views over the countryside. The inside seating is not huge and the queues get quite long when groups are in visiting the Wildfowl centre. There are... More

It's nice to hear that you are one of our 'regulars' and enjoy the views from the café even if you don't make it out onto the nature trails for a walk! I agree that the queues in the café can get rather long, especially if groups arrive en masse, and we're trying to think of ways we can make... More
