We visited for an afternoon tea for two. The Service was very friendly and the cakes were delicious. However, although when we booked we stated that one of the party was vegetarian over half the sandwiches were either meat or fish. The scones were a bit heavy and they could have been more generous with the cream. Our visit was... More

Thank goodness for PV, a stylish, warm hideaway from the competitive hustle and bustle. Service is only slightly faster than the genuine Parisian original but the coffee is much better than the American options. Pastries sampled, so far, are superb and the croque monsieur hits the lunchtime void perfectly.

Have visited PVs around the country. Have been to this one before. Half the place was fenced off as there was staff shortage. We ordered coffee and hot chocolate plus Black Forest gateau and Mille Fuille. Husband said that the Mille Fuille must have been yesterday's then maybe 1926 when PV started. The pastry was like wet leather. We were... More

The waitress came quickly to take our order and was knowledgable about the menu. The menu was quite vast, prices competitive for the area. The tea was served in a proper... More

As there aren't signs, take a seat....it is table service. Not a bad place. Usual modern thing....noise....because there aren't any soft furnishings. Busy.... Varied menu. Would visit again.

Four of us visited for a coffee. Took ages for our order to be taken even though the cafe wasn't particularly busy. Three drinks arrived and we had to go and ask where the fourth one was. They need to raise their game as there is a lot of competition in Chichester and I will be visiting one of the... More
