Really like this place, good for a morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. Always a good atmosphere, slightly older clientele which is good - no youngsters determined to drink as much as they can. Have always enjoyed myself here.

Daytime..... Forget the whole ‘high street’ coffee shops thing with queues galore and try CJ’s. Mornings are quiet, newspapers available for patrons use, plenty of comfortable seating and a menu that offers both choice and value. Night time..... Fab staff, drinks and cocktails!! Our family,...More

CJs is one of the best places to have a gathering with friends. The terrace is particularly stunning looking over St Swithuns church on a sunny day. There are regular events in the evenings which are very popular. A lovely friendly bar

The food here was fine but it didn't really have any wow factor. I would advise eating here for an average meal but not for a special occasion.

You can guarantee good food here whatever you choose! Upstairs is rooftop outside covered over with glass. Unfortunately for non smokers this is ruined by 2/3 given to smokers. Real shame as this is the only place left in East Grinstead with a sunny outside....More
