Hubby and I wanted a cream tea and we checked a few places nearby. The reason we chose Motte & Bailey was that they had their scones on display in the window and they looked SOOOO good - and large! Instead of having two cream teas we decided to share a cheese scone followed by a cream tea scone. The cheese scone was delicious, really tasty and the fruit scone was great too. The service was very good. Only two slight niggles - no hot water provided with pot of tea for two so we couldn't top the pot up for extra cuppas. There was a good amount of clotted cream but not enough jam for us. I asked for extra and I'm pleased to say it was happily and speedily provided. In hindsight, I don't know why I didn't ask for a jug of hot water, d'oh! Anyway, we really enjoyed our cheesy/cream tea and would definitely visit again.

Had a great tapas meal with 8 friends recently, customer service is great and the staff were very knowledgeable about all ingredients for those of us that had intollerances/allergies. Soo yummy, looking forward to coming back soon

My husband and I stopped in here for a late lunch on our way through Arundel - what a find! The staff were so welcoming and the food was excellent. We both had the burger which was top notch, served with homemade chunky chips and coleslaw. Lovely cafe.
