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 8.30am Tuesday – Friday, we open until 8.30pm Wednesday (film night – starts at 8pm) and 10.30pm Thursday and Friday to accommodate that cheeky bottle of wine and sumptuous cheeseboard, or participate in the Monthly trivia quiz (First Thursday every month) or Popular Pop Quiz (3rd Friday). Saturday is more relaxed 9.30-4.30pm although we now have an excellent breakfast on (9.30-12). Starting 16th March we’ll be opening on Sundays (9.30-12.30) for the Shakshuka brunch special and offering a children’s film.
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
