  • We are still card only in the Tearoom at present. 
Monday 17th May 2021 Information :
From Monday we will be open to dine inside our restaurant.
We have took the precautionary measure to still serve customers outside at the window. As it’s Summer and we are completely under cover and the fact that customers feel safer ordering outside at the moment. You can however once you have ordered sit inside. We will be doing this until the lockdown is lifted hopefully in June. Thank you
As many of you are aware 80% of all our tables outside are under cover anyway, but we would like to thank each and every one of you that has visited out Tearoom in sometimes not great weather, without you visiting us we could not of managed to get back to a kind of normality.
We will not be taking any bookings for tables for the next couple of weeks, it will be WALK-INS ONLY!.
This is because we will be extremely busy and as we are a Garden Centre we need to make sure people visiting the Garden Centre for plants can use the Tearoom as well as our wonderful Tearoom customers who love to just dine with us.
(Afternoon Tea bookings will still have reserved tables, Call on 01785 713352 to book yours!).
This is all very different for us as well as you, we may take longer at times to get the food to you, we may ask a few more questions, but please let me tell you, we take every precaution to keep you and ourselves as safe as possible.
Our staff take lateral flow tests every 3 days. They always wear a mask or shield, even in the kitchens, which is very challenging at times for our chefs. Never the less we do what needs to be done to keep things moving and to stay as safe as possible.
We look forward to welcoming you to sit inside but safely, thank you for your patience and understanding.

If you would like to book Afternoon Tea, please call the Tearoom on

01785 713352

Please be mindful we may not be able to answer your call at our busy lunchtimes, a good time to call is

9-10am or 3-4pm. 


Thank you for your patience
