It was many years before i have found a truly fantastic village store. Yes they are a bit more expensive than your supermarket but look at the financial and environmental savings by supporting your local shop. Not just a Post Office they supply freshly baked bread, pastries, sweet and savoury, sandwiches already prepared or made to order. The choices are amazing and of course if you have time they have the fanciest coffee making machine i have seen outside Costa’s., they have a great menu in the cafe where you can chill and enjoy your meal, inside or out (weather permitted). Either in the Shop, Post Office or Cafe the staff cannot be faulted, always polite, helpful and nothing is too much trouble.

We were looking for a family and dog friendly cafe for a post camping breakfast. We were lucky enough to find this gem. Everyone had a delicious breakfast, a really friendly welcome and nothing too much trouble. Highly recommend!

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!
