The Grove Blackboys

We are a Farmhouse Café and Community Hub that serves fresh homemade food and provides a welcoming place to meet. A number of local groups and organisations use The Grove and adjacent venue The Space for meetings and events.

As well as our cafe offering we stock a select range of confectionery, snacks and drinks, including local beer, wine and cider. We try to support local producers with bread, milk, cheese and eggs all coming from within a few miles of Blackboys. Our tea and coffee is all ethically sourced and our cakes, scones and tray bakes all made in our kitchen.

The Grove is located on beautiful Brownings Farm in the heart of the East Sussex countryside.

There are some lovely walks across the farm on public footpaths (please ask for directions)
