The Cafe by the Lake has been nominated for Cafe of the Year 2014 in the West Sussex County Times! If you wish to vote for us please pick up a County Times and look up the Cafe of the Year 2014 in the WOW 24/7 section. Thank you to all our customers for your amazing continued support!

The Cafe by the Lake is at Sumners Ponds Fishery and Campsite, Barns Green and is open to the general public as well as our campers from 8.00am every day serving breakfasts, lunches, drinks, snacks and ice cream. During high seasons our bar and restaurant is open late on selected days serving evening meals with reduced opening in the winter. Please see the current opening times to the right.

Enjoy a full English breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea on the decking overlooking the lake, or something a bit more warming, during the winter, inside the cosy restaurant. All meals can be provided on an eat-in or take-away basis.

We have a licensed bar on the premises which is open to everyone. The bar is open all day everyday, and is open late every evening in high season with reduced opening in the winter.
