Loving what we do


As you may be aware, we love our town! As long-term Shoreham residents, years of commuting had meant that we were spending the vast majority of our time away from it, which frankly wasn’t good enough!  In 2013, we decided to get off the treadmill and find a way to work where we live and give something back to our fantastic community. We created Tom Foolery Coffee Company in response.

We opened our doors in May 2014 and our ethos then was the same as it is now: to bring you the very best in locally sourced food and drink, served with a warm welcome in the surrounds of our beautiful, vibrant shop overlooking the River Adur. Because you deserve it! We’re really passionate about what we do and whether you’re visiting us to enjoy a full lunch with friends, meeting with work colleagues, or just popping in for a quick cuppa, we’ll always try to ensure you have the best possible experience.

We’re also very family friendly – we have some great options for kids and plenty of room for your buggies! – and we’re dog friendly too. Apart from that Zoltan, Hound of Dracula. Stay away, demon dog.

Whatever your reason for coming, you can find us on Shoreham High Street, almost opposite the Adur Ferry Bridge. We look forward to welcoming you!

Bob, Vanessa and the Tom Foolery team.
