Coffee and breakfast at The Real Eating Company


The Real Eating Company has opened its doors in Gunwharf's Central Square, offering the best in fresh, locally sourced food.

Created by Brighton-based Helena Hudson, The Real Eating Company offers guests a casual dining experience using great local produce. From coffee roasted freshly each week in Arundel, to delicious apple juice sourced from a family-run business in the South Downs, The Real Eating Company is passionate about its strong relationships with talented local suppliers.

Helena Hudson, Managing Director at The Real Eating Company, added: “We’ve always believed in using good-quality local produce wherever we can, long before it became fashionable. It’s a really important part of our DNA, part of being an independent business, and we believe it’s something that matters to our customers.”

Guests will be able to sample dishes including hot pulled pork, cooked apple, BBQ slaw and rocket rolls, skipjack tuna melt, avocado bloomer and freshly baked goods such as almond croissants, raisin snails, chocolate brownies and raspberry bakewells.

New for 2019: The Real Eating Company has announced plans to go plastic free. Following the introduction of limited-edition 100% compostable cups, each featuring a town landmark, The Real Eating Company has announced it is eliminating plastic across all its cafés where possible. The new packaging is made of plants not plastic - using renewable lower carbon or recycled materials that can be composted with food waste where accepted. All sandwiches, warm drinks and takeaway food will now be served in sustainable packaging.
