Generally I will try to steer clear of Bosham.
It is a destination, a picturesque historic village which is always heaving with day trippers. But I made the mistake of dropping by the PopIn micro-cafe. If I remember correctly I was after a Thai sausage roll from the Shoreside Cafe which I had spotted on the net.
Needless to say bthe menu has since changed and I wandered up the road looking for something different, if it was not the Thai sausage roll.
As a cafe it is small, very small.
But the pies and cakes and light bites on display different. They look tempting and homemade. Not sure about the coffee but if the sausage roll I tucked into is anything to go by I am certain it is as good as they claim.
