The Hubbery Cafe

Our outdoor pop up cafe is closed in August as we are spending the summer in Sweden. Sorry for any inconvenience.

We look forward to seeing you again in the autumn!

Fika is the Swedish word for stopping what you’re doing, having a break and enjoying a drink and a homemade treat together with your family, your friends or your colleagues. It’s a hugely important part of Swedish culture and it is a concept that is difficult to fully explain or translate properly … You just have to visit us to experience it!

The Hubbery has been running for Spithurst Hub members and local businesses for several years and as we received a lot of positive comments about what we offer, we decided to also open up as an outdoor cafe back in June 2020.  Our menu is Swedish themed and in partnership with some great local Sussex businesses:

Direct trade Colombian filter coffee from Lindfield Coffee Works

Cold drinks from Folkington’s

Milk, butter and ice creams from Downsview Farm

Lamb from Offham Farm Shop

Organic Tremains cheese from High Weald Dairy

Gravad and smoked salmon from Springs Smokery 

Asparagus from South Brookwells Farm 

Mince and other produce from Denniker Farm Shop

Award winning organic eggs from Springles Farm

Bread either homemade or from Newick Bakery

Vegan and gluten free patisserie, muffins and energy balls from Ginie at Pure Patisserie Box

Various vegetables from Barcombe Nurseries and some home grown

Venison from Sutton Hall Estate

Porter for our venison stew from Harvey’s Brewery

Various produce from The Market Garden at Sheepgate Farm

Beautiful aprons from Tatiana at Softer and Wild

We provide a selection of homemade Swedish cinnamon, cardamom and vanilla buns, cakes and biscuits and some traditional English favourites. Plus our So Sussex Chocolate Cake of course famous from the Elderflower Fields festival picnic.  We aim to have some gluten free and vegan cake available too.

We also offer a small selection of lunches.

Our outdoor cafe is closed in August, but our usual opening hours are Saturdays and Sundays 10.00-16.00.  Get in touch with us on [email protected] if you have any questions.

We have six outdoor under cover tables that can be booked in advance, but there are other tables and benches dotted around the garden for people just popping by. We do however highly recommend booking in advance, particularly for lunch, and it’s essential if you want to be sure to have a space under cover. Just email us on [email protected] to book in.

Dogs are very welcome at our cafe as long as they are kept on a lead please. Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed on the permissive footpath that leads away from the cafe through the fields and through Knowlands Wood towards The Secret Campsite or back towards Barcombe. Please do respect the landowners’ and the farmer’s decision on this as this is not a public footpath. Many thanks.

We look forward to welcoming you again in the autumn!
