A few times a month, I travel from Kent to Battle to collect my step sons from school. My Mum comes with me and we’ve started to stop for lunch at the Route 1066 Cafe. The food is lovely and of quality, well presented, tasty and very reasonable in price. The staff are very welcoming and friendly, my Mum particularly feels very comfortable there; she’s a bit wobbly on her pins, uses 2 sticks, but there is no problem. You know how sometimes when people get older, they start to get invisible and people stop talking to them? Not here! Really lovely people. Mum being Mum she sent them a card to say thank you after our first visit and they were really delighted to receive it and thanked her for her trouble.
On the route through to Hastings there aren’t many stop off places; it’s really worth planning the Route 1066 Cafe into your journey
I’ve also been there with my partner Martin and his boys. He is very particular about price, quality and value. He’s given it the thumbs up and that’s really saying something! The boys enjoyed the food very much too
We can’t recommend it enough

A unique food choosing experience! The lady who served us could not do enough to please – summed up by refusing to take a tip!
All standard Café fair – but some interesting items as well – take your time to look at all the menu items on boards as well as the printed menus – so take your time before you order!
Doesnt matter if you have a motorbike or car. All are welcome, really good veggie breakfast. Good music, sonething to read. Give it a try
Popped in for breakfast on Sunday on a trip to Battle, excellent value and a good breakfast. Lots of bikers use it so it must be good :):)
Popped in here for a cuppa today whilst out on my motorbike. Lots of bikes to see. Have been here before for breakfast, food was good and would come here again. Friendly staff. Visited August 2015
Always quick always good value always friendly. Best biker venue in Sussex. Varied menu too. What could be better
Just had a great lunch. Fast, efficient and friendly service. Two kids meals (main, drink and penguin bar) food well cooked, tasty and generous portions for £3.95 each. Homemade chilli was lovely. Four of us fed and watered for £21, well worth the money and great surroundings. Would definitely call in again.
My husband and Infegularly drive down to Hastings. What has been lacking is finding the right place to stop for breakfast/brunch to start the day. well now we have. the Route 1066 Diner in Robertsbridge offers just what’s needed. If you’re looking for fine dining then drive past. But if it’s an all singing all dancing brunch pull over! We were greeted by a smiley faces lady who took our order and made us a cup of tea just as we like it. The breakfast was delivered to our clean bright table in no time at all. Good quality produce (if one complaint maybe the bread but it still moped up my plate!!) The price was very reasonable and now. as a Nanna I also noted that they have full reasonable priced children’s menus and the toilet facilities were good.
We didn’t know this place even existed!!! It was just our good fortune to find ourself here on the way to Hastings. Our car had lost exccelaration and we were driving at 13mph. We stopped here to phone the breakdown services and the lady serving inside couldn’t have been more pleasant or helpfull. She said we didn’t have to have food to shelter there but it was lunch time anyway and we had the most gorgeous sandwiches & coffee. We were there a long time and eventually had to abandon our car. I really can’t fault anything about this place. Excellent food, staff and cleanliness!!! Thank you so much for making a stressful situation a lot better. Xx
Me and my husband come here alot, good for meeting fellow bikers. We rode over on a wet cold sunday morning meeting a friend. I ordered breakfast 2 without egg, my husband had the bacon, egg and chips and it was very nice it always is. The staff are always friendly to us, its always clean and has a happy atmosphere. We feel its one of the best biker cafes around.
Popped in on way back from Hastings and received a lovely welcome from the lady serving. Despite it being a very busy New Year’s she was cheerful and happy to alter the breakfast set options to all our tastes. Food came quickly and was a good old fashioned fry up. Can only assume the lady is new because I can’t imagine her being the grumpy one mentioned in other reviews.
On Wednesday afternoons I pickup my 2 elderly Army Veterans from two different Nursing Homes and take them for a drive around the local countryside and on the way back call into the Route 1066 Cafe for tea,coffee and cakes and I find your staff very polite and helpful always welcoming us. I recommend this cafe to have a break and a meal. (Visited Wednesday Afternoons when in the area) 1st October 2014.
A cafe on the tortuous A21. Good food, reasonably priced, in a “biker” ambiance – but they are invariably friendly! (Visited April 2014)
….Just to say what a grand experience the cafe has become.
Properly prepared food in nice clean surroundings with 60’s and 70’s
road house theme which plays old rock and roll. Bikers old a new are encouraged along with the old car brigade. Cheerful service and all the trimmings. As an old local who has old bikes, I love to come here with my missus for a decent breakfast and cappuccino. Doesn’t get any better than that. Jim D – (17th May 2014)
Janet and Mick Davies of Hastings would like to thank Alison and all the staff for the wonderful private hire reception they put on for us for our Silver Wedding Anniversary. This is the second event we have had here. The service is excellent, as is the food, and all the staff are so friendly. In fact, all our guests keep remarking on the fantastic spread of food. Once again, a very BIG THANK YOU to Alison and all the staff at Route 1066

…..the service and food that myself and a colleague received last Saturday was spot on! Mark G (12th May 2014)
Plenty of parking at this decent all day breakfast cafe on the A21 just south of Robertsbridge. Tables outside too (if the weather ever improves) and handy carwash next door! A good fry up very fairly priced. (Visited May 2013)
We stopped here for breakfast mid-morning and we weren’t disappointed. We were welcomed by a friendly woman who explained the menu whilst getting our two lattes sorted – proper coffee. There is quite an extensive breakfast menu with various options and side orders. When the breakfasts came, they were freshly cooked, hot and very good – proper sauted mushrooms rather than the usual semi-raw offerings, ditto the grilled tomatoes.
The atmosphere was relaxed and even though not very busy, it didn’t have that uncomfortable feel that precludes conversation. We would definitely return if journeying on the A21 again. If it’s gourmet brekkies you’re after, this place isn’t it but for a good old fashioned fry-up, look no further. (Visited April 2013)
