The-Purple-Carrot is based in the village of Hassocks, West Sussex, just by the train station
At its most basic The Purple Carrot is a coffee and bagel bar aiming primarily to cater to the local communities of the area
Providing excellent coffee, tea, smoothies and shakes to drink and locally made cakes, flapjacks and other sweet delicacies to devour plus local and ethically sourced salads, a few weekly specials a cheeseboard to travel for and various special snacks plus we are now licensed, but also offer a bring your own (BYO) facility with a corkage charge, for those wanting to enjoy a glass of something slightly stronger as an early evening bar.
Open from 10am every weekday, our summer opening hours, we open until 10pm Wednesday (film night) and 10.30pm Thursday and Friday to accommodate that cheeky bottle of wine and sumptuous cheeseboard. Saturday is more relaxed 9.30-4.45pm although we now have an excellent breakfast on and Sunday we just look at afternoon tea and cakes (12-4pm) apart from the first Sunday of every month when we have cake tapas (10.30-4.45pm) and offer the papers and a myriad of cakes and fancies) – these times may change, we’ll see how it’s going!
In the evenings apart from just chilling out and relaxing on the comfy sofas downstairs or making yourselves part of the ambient scene as window dressing the purple carrot is also encouraging community and social groups to use the premises, book clubs, parents and toddlers in the day, interest groups and people who just want to meet up somewhere a bit more cosy than a pub and comfier than the village/ school hall
Also look out for special events on a regular Saturday night basis
