Locally produced food

We’re proud producers of home-grown and locally produced food here in West Sussex.

With meat that can be traced back to the farm it was reared on, outstanding artisanal foods, awards-winning wines and seafood that’s famous across the globe (have a read up on Selsey Crab if you don’t know about it already!) it should come as no surprise that our cafés serve some of the finest food around.

But that’s not to say we can’t cater for a quick bite too. Whether you’re in the market for a long leisurely brunch in an award-winning café, or are simply seeking to fill a hole between errands or sightseeing, we have plenty of choice for you.
