Taffels was opened by the entrepreneurial Taffel family following their move from London several years ago. With fond memories of the excellent eateries they had known in London, the family wanted to bring a taste of this culinary scene to Sussex so opened a magnificent café in Forest Row. Adrienne, the architect half of the Taffels, has designed a café with style and flair that proved instantly popular with visitors, while Warren Taffel has shaped the restaurant’s ethos, emphasising stylish food as the platform upon which to build.

Delightful, flavoursome dishes are prepared fresh every day by talented, creative chefs, and served in a beautiful setting. Far from a fast-food venue, Taffels is a place in which to relax and take time to enjoy the experience. The sheer popularity of the café is testament to the talent of the chefs, the charm of the café’s staff and the truly exceptional food.

The menu changes with the seasons while specials change every other day, and are priced from £11 to £13. Specials may include the likes of roast duck leg with an aromatic pancetta, butter bean and cherry tomato stew; southern-fried chicken with sweetcorn and banana fritters; halloumi goujons with spicy tomato salsa, and kedgeree with locally produced hot-smoked salmon. General manager Jo presides over the running of the café, ensuring that Taffels consistently provides the best possible experience. Every day, counters are filled with spectacular dishes inspired by great food from around the world including salads with a Mediterranean influence, which offer great value for money. You can enjoy al fresco dining on the terrace and the all-weather balcony, or relax inside in the main café. At the rear of the café is the village car park, which offers free parking and allows entrance into Taffels from the back as well as the front.

Whether you’re visiting for a quick coffee, a lazy breakfast or a tasty lunch or tea, you can be sure that Taffels will hit the mark.
