Where to go for lunch in Horsham

We have so many restaurants and cafes in Horsham that we’re spoilt for choice, but sometimes find ourselves sticking to the same few that we know and love. It’s of utmost important that we are supporting our independent restaurants and cafes as their survival relies on us. However, more than that, it’s great to try new things and enjoy a wide range of tasty offerings!

Why not try a new lunch spot out and let us know what you make of it? Tweet us at @HorshamBlog.

La Piazzetta

This authentic Italian restaurant is a little hidden gem. It is one of the latest restaurants to open in the Bishopric, situated in the previously owned Merrythought Restaurant. This independent pizzeria offers a welcoming family feel. If you’d like to try out some real home made Italian food you must give it a try! They offer a superb lunchtime special – ‘Any pizza or pasta plus a drink £8.95’.

carmelas in horsham


Carmela’s is a stunning independent, family run restaurant serving authentic Sicilian and Mediterranean dishes at the very top of East Street. East Street is home to many popular chain restaurants, but Carmela’s is a thriving, popular independent restaurant, giving it that special edge. Why not start by trying out their lunch menu? £7.95 for one delicious course, or add a 500 ml carafe of red / white or a 2 pint jug of Poretti for an extra £9.95.

The restaurant building is also a treat to dine in, with exposed beams and a very traditional feel. The calzone is a winning staple of the menu and you can also have light bites for work lunches.

The Comodor

The Comodor in Horsham is the perfect spot for some excellent value, good food. They have a large menu with plenty of choice from Italian classics to a Full English Breakfast with tea, coffee or juice for just £6.95! They offer a great value Sunday lunch, and going by their Trip Advisor reviews this is a massive hit. It used to be located next to the pedestrian crossing between Costa and TK Maxx but has now moved to larger premises at the old Christian Café site.
