Café Reopens for Panto Season!

A warm cup of tea, scrummy cakes, scones and biscuits and delicious sandwiches…what could be better on a cold December day?!

We are absolutely delighted to announce the opening of a new pop-up café during the Panto season – and you don’t have to be a Panto customer to enjoy it! (Oh no you don’t!)

Ropetackle and Rose Petal Cake Company have teamed up to offer visitors hot drinks and scrumptious snacks over the festive season and are delighted to be open from 10th – 31st. Part of the menu is a fabulous Festive Afternoon Tea for just £16 per person.

For menu, dates and to book a tea, please visit:

The café will be open from 9.30am until the interval of the last day’s performance on Pantomime days and will serve a selection of food and drink. Please note that on days where there is only an evening performance, ie Dec 13, 15 and 16, the café will be open from 4pm.

Rose Petal Cake Company was set up by Becky Matthews in 2017. In November 2019, she won the Young Achiever Award at the Adur and Worthing Business Awards.
