Food is served every day at our freshly refurbished Rushfields Cafe! Discover our brand-new cafe and enjoy a lovely cup of coffee. From full breakfasts to home-cooked lunches, fresh teas, aromatic coffee, and tasty cakes. We’re here to keep you refreshed and relaxed. Make yourself at home in the airy cafe, or in good weather, settle on our plant-filled terrace, enjoying the views over the Sussex Downs.
All our meals and snacks are prepared by our chefs in our kitchen, using local produce from our Farm Shop. What’s more, our menus include gluten-free, organic and other free-from ranges to suit everyone’s tastes.
Visit the cafe before or after your shop at the plant centre, or just come on over for breakfast, coffee, lunch or tea to soak in the relaxed yet buzzing atmosphere.
Take a look at what we offer, whatever the season is, every day from 9 am to 4:30 pm:
Start the day with a scrumptious cafe breakfast. Whether it’s a hearty farmer’s breakfast made with our award-winning sausages, free-range eggs and farm mushrooms, a lighter meal of scrambled eggs, or something from our daily specials menu, we’ve got your perfect morning pick-me-up.
Just fancy a warming tea or coffee with a pastry? No problem. We’re here with gluten-free breakfast dishes, too. Breakfasts are served from 9 am to 11:30 am.
Catch up with a friend over coffee or a light bite. Our classic and speciality teas are matched by a great choice of lattes, mochas, cappuccinos, and other coffees, as well as indulgent hot chocolate, fresh juices, and soft drinks. Want a slice of cake or pastry with them? Coming up!
Relax over lunch with your choice of sandwiches, snacks, salads, and more substantial meals, all made in our kitchen using our Farm Shop products. Enjoy a freshly prepared brie and cranberry ciabatta, jacket potato or chunky soup, or select from our seasonal daily specials, with signature dishes like our award-winning pies or sausages with creamy mash. Our home-made desserts make the perfect finale, with everything from apple crumble to ginger cake and custard.
Lunches are served from 11:45 am until 3 pm.
Afternoon Tea and Snacks
Put the afternoon on hold for a traditional cream tea with scones, a hunk of moist carrot, ginger, or apple cake or a rich chocolate brownie, all accompanied by a pot of refreshing tea or coffee.
Our cakes, pastries, slices, and scones are all freshly prepared, and we offer gluten-free and wheat-free options with many ranges.
Our cafe is fully licensed, so you can enjoy a glass of wine or beer with your meal or snacks. We offer a variety of high-quality wines, and a wide range of bottled craft beers, ales, and lagers, many made locally. Our soft drinks include fresh natural juices, ginger beer, and still and sparkling waters.
While we don’t take small table reservations, we accept advance bookings for parties of six or more people at our cafe. Talk to one of our friendly team on 01273 850013 to see how we can help. Or come over at the plant centre and discuss the possibilities while drinking a refreshing natural juice or a delicious latte.
