Pashley prides itself on its delicious, homemade and locally sourced food.

As well as coming to see the beautiful gardens visitors should ‘allow time to sample the fabulous homemade food and warm hospitality at arguably the best garden café in the county, much of which is sourced from the abundant kitchen garden’ (Leigh Clapp in ‘Sussex Life’ Magazine).

n the licensed café staff will be happy to help you to a selection of lunches from the buffet:

Locally smoked chicken and trout

Ham and cheeses

Homemade soups and quiches

Meat and vegetarian pâtés

Hand-raised pie

Daily specials

Pashley Manor Gardens - Selection from the Buffet by Leigh Clapp

Meals are served ploughman’s lunch style with salads, from the garden when in season, and freshly baked bread, finished with homemade chutney and salad dressing, mustards and mayonnaise.

If you fancy something lighter there are homemade fruit or cheese scones, a large selection of delicious cakes and locally made ice-creams as well as coffee, teas, soft drinks, fine wines and local beers. Click on the Menu link to the left to see all the choices.

You can enjoy your food on the terrace overlooking the moat, in the shade on the courtyard or inside the Garden Room Café - where the walls are decorated with local artists’ work throughout the season.

Gift Shop
In January 2009 we embarked on the construction of the new building you see at the bottom of the drive, which is now our reception and shop. This fine timber framed building with its handsome clock tower is made of green oak with cedar weather boarding and roofed with hand made local tiles.

All the construction was carried out by local craftsmen. The result is a pleasant building purpose made for the job.

In 2010 this building won the Sussex Heritage Trust Commercial Award – an accolade which recognises and rewards conservation, restoration and good design of new builds, as well as encouraging the use of traditional skills and crafts.

From postcards, a wonderful selection of greetings cards and local honey or homemade chutney, to traditional hand-painted ceramics, superb quality toiletries and tapestry cushions, the Gift Shop caters for every taste.

Gift Shopping for Christmas
Pashley’s Gift Shop will be open for 11 days in winter, from Thursday 23 November every day until Sunday 3 December, 10am to 4pm.

As usual the shop will be packed with a wide selection of high quality gifts and cards as well as special Christmas stock for the festive season – so, if you are looking for present ideas, or something for yourself or your home, do come and visit. (Please note the gardens and café will not be open at this time).
