The Hungry Guest brand is all about combining renowned artisan foods and quality everyday supplies. We cater for our customers’ every day needs as well as continually satisfying their high expectations for locally sourced, quality goods.
The Hungry Guest first opened its doors in the market town of Petworth, West Sussex in November 2011 following the vision and creativity of its co-founder, the Danish-born master baker Troels Bendix.
In 2011 he brought his passion and expertise to West Sussex and opened up our Petworth café, serving delicious freshly-baked breads, tasty lunches, homemade cakes and coffee daily to visitors and residents of the picturesque market town. Shortly after this our first shop opened which has gone on to win UK Delicatessen of the Year in 2015 and again, for the second year running, in 2016.
Our mission is to evoke passion and appreciation in all our customers and visitors through our dedication to source fresh, local produce wherever possible as well as supplying renowned artisan products at accessible prices to excite every taste bud!
We stand for more than simply great tasting food and gastronomic indulgence – it’s built on a long-standing philosophy of the value of good food. The passion of our production kitchen is what gives life to our products and ties together the unique network between the fabulous local growers, our very talented chefs behind the scenes, and the people, who share in the end result.
The Hungry Guest also includes a wholesale artisan bakeryand production kitchen, an award winning food shop complete with it’s own butchery and walk in cheese room. Easter 2015 saw further expansion with our first venture in Kent.
Our second cafe is situated on the high street in the market town of West Malling. With plans for further outlets, the future for The Hungry Guest is very exciting.
