Pooh-seum Grand Opening
We were delighted when our Pooh-seum (the worlds first Winnie the Pooh Museum dedicated to the people behind the books) was officially opened by BBC Presenter Gyles Brandreth on December 7th 2019. Gyles, an old friend of Christopher Robin Milne said “Christopher would approve” – you can’t get a better recommendation that that!
Also present was BBC Presenter Charlotte Wright who reported from the event.
The museum showcases over 100 years of the Milne family, the origins of the story, some original Pooh Bears and some unseen books and photos to help tell the story.

The Enchanted Places – Christopher Milne
“Subsequent trips included our weekly visit to Hartfield, a mile away along a main road, up a steep hill, down a steep hill and in at the first shop on the left hand side. Jessica (my donkey) needed no urging and the woman behind the counter no instructions. It was a pennyworth of bullseyes for each of us.”

What our customers think…
The Staff couldn’t have been nicer and even on the bank holiday when they were very busy, they were very efficient and professional. Nothing was too much for them to sort, they were very polite and well mannered. Can’t wait to go back again soon!
We were walking in Ashdown Forest and had researched where to stop for lunch. Thought this looked like a fun place to eat. The staff were so friendly and the service was really quick. The food was absolutely amazing, really fresh and delicious, so were the cakes. The prices are really reasonable and portion sizes are good. After eating you can go inside where there is a shop selling everything Pooh and a little museum which is also really interesting. Definitely recommend whether you are a Winnie the Pooh fan or not.
Although we hadn’t booked in advance, we were lucky enough to be welcomed in with our dog at this lovely cafe. We enjoyed a substantial lunch and then looked around the interesting museum and shop. The owners very kindly spent some time explaining to us the history behind the building, cafe and museum – a very friendly and enthusiastic couple. Highly recommended!
