A Recent Review

“Wessons draws loyal customers from all parts of the local community who appreciate the excellent food and service, comfortable dining experience and free wifi; all this has helped earn them a spot on the short list for the Sussex Food and Drink awards. Make no mistake though, bikers will always be at the heart of the business.

Steve said “We are 100% committed to bikers. I’ve been on the bike business for 25 years now, first running the motorcycle shop and later turning the focus on the cafe. This is an ideal spot for us, not only are we in the middle of a nice little village with a great plot of land near trails and cycle paths but we also benefit from some of the best roads around.”

You can cut down to Brighton on the A27 and enjoy a stop on the seafront. Steve recommends a cup of tea at the Madeira café if you’re going in that direction. Riding around this area of Sussex you will see every manner of scenery, from motorways to quaint villages with chocolate box cottages and amazing twisty roads with leafy tunnels.” – Read more

About us

The famous Wessons Cafe has been on the High street in Horam since the year 2000. It is a family business run by Loz, Alex and Steve Wesson, Lizzie Rose and Nikki Pope . It is a large premises with seating for 120. Wesssons Cafe is a busy bustling place, very popular with motorcyclists and cyclists of all ages!

Steve is always building some kind of streetfighter or special which is always on view in various stages of construction, currently an Suzuki GSX 1400 Cafe racer and a lovely Triumph Rocket 111 Roadster, see gallery.

On the walls you can see ORIGINAL Paul Sample Ogri cartoon strips and art work. Paul has also drawn Ogri characters directly onto the wall. In the early days Wessons was the first and only Ogri Cafe!

We have always been a fan of British cafe culture and are doing our best to bring the traditional cafe back to life but with a nostalgic nod to the past.

We are supporters and fund raisers for Spinal Research charity. Look out for forthcoming events. Any suggestions for charity events will be welcome.
