Antique Shop
“Step back in time to the shopping equivalent of Dennis Severs haunting Georgian house in London's Spitalfields. Beautifully restored (or unrestored), whether you like a quality old fashioned broom, a feather duster or the magical atmosphere of a shop that has a roaring open fire by the entrance, this place makes browsing a real pleasure.”

“My favourite cafe in St Leonards. Scandi-influenced, minimalist decor with a delightful, covered outside area this is not just a place for incredible coffee, the food here is also great. I've whiled away many warm, comfortable hours here watching St Leonards go about its business outside the huge window. The managers are lovely people too! ”

“Nearest supermarket if you need a bigger shop. Bear in mind that if you peruse the aisles down the middle you may come back with items not on your list. In our case these have ranged from bicycle saddles to tents!”
