From 19th July 2021, our Café will be open as normal for eat-in and takeaway purchases. Limited seating will be available indoors. There will remain a large number of outside chairs and tables, including under an awning for adverse weather, which are cleaned and sanitized between customers.
If you park in our car park, you must pay to park. If you park elsewhere and walk onto site, you are still welcome to come into the Visitor Centre and use the café.
There will be an enhanced deep cleaning procedure. We will be offering take away only, with pre-packaged food and drink. We are removing our cold drinks and ice cream fridges to prevent products coming into contact with customers’ hands as they browse. There will be a screen on the counter to separate staff from visitors. There will be a socially distanced queue system in place. Hot drinks will be offered in disposable, single-use cups. Sugar sachets will be removed from the tables and staff will add sugar to drinks at purchase. There will be additional outdoor seating.
Yes, you are welcome to bring a picnic and eat it in our outdoor areas. Please do not consume your picnic inside our building, or on our dedicated café seating.
As we are a registered charity, and every purchase supports us, please consider buying a hot or cold drink from our café to go with your picnic. We also sell picnic blankets.
We will be offering a small selection of food and drink for sale in the Meadow so that visitors do not have to return to the Visitor Centre to make a purchase.
