This tearoom is cosy to say the least. Lovely light lunches and teas. Rhubarb scones to be recommended. Only down side is no credit cards taken , which I would expect anywhere these days, so took me a bit by surprise.

After a walk went for tea and cake. Lovely tea room and tea and scones, tea cake. However service was very slow and only two fruit scones when we asked for four. Also felt choice of only two cakes very limited for a tea room.More

Truly excellent lunch here (again). Definitely need to reserve a table, it's a small atmospheric place and extremely popular. Good little menu, food very well prepared and presented, plates almost overflowing. Will definitely return. Highly recommended.

Hi there, There are 2 pay and display car parks near to us which are 70p per hour. One in the High Street itself and one by the Steyning Centre (Fletchers Croft) Both are just a couple of minutes walk to us. Kind regards Kim
