We have made the difficult decision to close our Coffee Shop & Restaurant. We will be closed from Friday 18 December, reopening in the New Year. Date to be confirmed once we have an update on the tiers. There will be no takeaway service available. Customers with bookings will be contacted via SMS and/or email and given a £10 voucher (per person) to spend in January or February.
Because of recent tier changes, we have a situation where many of our customers (in tier 3) have now been told they should not visit us. Others are limiting their travel and activities before the relaxation of restrictions over Christmas. There has been a drop in trade as a result, and it is not commercially viable to stay open. Our team will be furloughed during this period.
We apologise for any inconvenience. It’s been a rollercoaster of a year. We remain optimistic about the future and know that we can come back from these temporary changes. We are aware that we have had a better time of it than others, so we send our best wishes to all those businesses and individuals adversely affected.
The garden centre remains open. We look forward to reopening our Coffee Shop doors in 2021.
