  With much sadness and after a lot of soul searching we have closed our café today for the foreseeable future. The garden centre will remain open and garden maintenance will continue for as long as it is safe. We feel this is the right thing to do for the health and wellbeing of all; to try and help prevent the spread of this virus. We are a family business and thank you all for your support over the years. We will continue and you will see the café re-open when it is deemed time to socialise again.
