The Café at The Old Workshop

We are now closed until Thursday 28th March.

We are excited to be opening with exhibition, ‘Four Artists, One Barn’ from Thursday 28th March – Sunday 14th April with talented and local artists. Find out more here.

Local florist, Laura, from Wild Willow Flowers will be in our courtyard, on Thursday 28th March, 10am – 2pm, with natural and seasonal flowers to make beautiful bouquets for you to take home. She will also have gorgeous garden vintage finds for sale.

Make sure you don’t miss our seasonal wreath & posy workshop on Tuesday 23rd April with expert guidance and all materials provided by the lovely Laura from Wild Willows. Find out more & book here.

This 16th century barn houses an informative and interactive exhibition on the history of Sullington and farming on the Down; the early 20th century lean-to extension has been converted into a charming and stylish, modern café environment. The main barn and outside area are dog friendly.

Our cafe is the perfect pit stop after a bracing walk along the South Downs Way or a gentle dog walk from Storrington or Washington.

A warm welcome awaits!

What to expect

We use great quality ingredients, sourced as locally as possible – some food miles can be measured in yards, from the vegetable patch! Everything is home-made so allow for a bit of ‘wonk’ but come and enjoy cafetiere coffee, homemade cakes, light lunches and afternoon tea.

The cycle racks and fix-it station make it an ideal stop for the intrepid cyclist. We’re passionate about regenerating the built heritage (you can read more about the restoration of the workshop here) and about supporting the local economy, including a great team of local, young people. Come and see for yourselves!
