Lovely village shop/cafe/post office. Amazing friendly staff. Dog friendly. Super fresh locally sourced delcious cooked food. Perfect place for a cuppa and/or bite to eat. Convenience of a local village shop together with a Post Office. A great example of how rural village shops should be.

I have no Idea what the previous reviewer (Olly) is talking about ... the staff or should I say 'stuff' as he did, are never rude, I have been there when their delivery has been a bit late and they gave me something extra free in place of the thing they didn't have - or did you forget to mention that?? The fact that it is a dog friendly cafe is a real plus when you live in the countryside and I often pop in for a cuppa or a bite to eat after my walk. however if there is ever anyone who doesn't like dogs the owners always move the dogs away. Perhaps Olly is someone more used to McDonalds than a good home cooked breakfast - it's no loss to the cafe if they never come back. Personally I would go out of my way to find such a lovely little cafe/shop and it would be a shame to miss this one if you are visiting the area.

Amazing little shop. We were camping near by and made the hour walk through the woods and torrential rain for supplies. The lovely owner then offered to give us a lift back to camp. Can’t thank them enough! Lovely people!
Situated in the heart of the countryside near to Darwel and Ashes wood, just outside Battle, is a place where you can relax whilst getting a few jobs done! You will enjoy a helpful and friendly service and free parking with very easy access.

Enjoy a nice cup of tea, freshly ground coffee, cakes, pastries, pies, sandwiches or a hot meal, we are famous for our breakfast! Local products are used when possible and all food is made on the premises. There is free wifi and dogs are very welcome, just as long as their owner behaves.

We aim to stock everything you may need in general groceries, plus a little more such as gifts, greeting cards, stationary, helium balloons, confectionary, local beer, wine, crafts and produce, frozen items, homemade ready meals, pet supplies, logs and coal, newspapers and magazines, we also offer a dry cleaning and shoe repair service.

Post Office:
We can do most postal services, personal and business banking, global currency, moneygram, Lottery and scratch cards. We rely on our customers to keep the Post Office open, without you the PO would be closed by now, thank you for your support!
