Drinks (fully licensed)
Our hot drinks include a wide range of ethically sourced coffee and tea as well as delicious hot chocolate. Our cold drinks include a range of sparkling drinks made with natural ingredients as well as a selection of local Ringden Farm Apple Juice Fruit Blends. We stock a range of beers and cider from the local area, including wines from the award winning Blackboys Vineyard as well as further afield.
Our cooked breakfast is a real winner with a great selection of breakfast options on offer to suit a range of appetites. High quality ingredients used including local Bird-in-Eye Farm sausages, Albion Bakery bread (our favourite is the Sussex granary!) and free-range eggs from Five Chimneys Eggs.
Choose something such as our hearty farmhouse hotpots (available in the winter), our famous Ham, Egg and Chips, home-made soup, jacket potatoes or other great hot dishes or something cold from our great range of freshly prepared sandwiches and baguettes, or one of our amazing ploughman's platters!
We provide a great range of options to choose from for the kids, including mini-portions of food from the adult’s menu and have created a great snack selection especially for them.
We make all our own scones, cakes and tray bakes at the Grove – there is always a great selection on offer. Our Flapjacks are incredible and by far our most popular tray bake.
Call ahead and we’ll get your order ready for your collection or just turn up – most of our menu we can prepare for you to take-away.
Fruit and vegetables are delivered every day and we love bringing in seasonal fruit and vegetable from the local farms such as soft fruit from Chiddingly Fruit Farm, apples from Oast Farm Buxted and asparagus from South Brockwells Farm. Bread is from the bakery just down the road at Albion Bakery; Sussex granary is our favourite! All the milk we sell and use in the café is from Downsview Dairy, Ringmer – their ice creams are delicious too!
