Table reservations cannot be made in advance and the ‘rule of six’ will still apply. Masks must be worn when moving about the garden centre but are not required whilst seated in the Restaurant. Food cannot be eaten in the garden centre, in line with Covid safety requirements. During very busy times, we will make you aware in advance that your table may only be available for a specified period of time.


How are you keeping everyone safe?

As always, our priority will continue to be the safety of you and our team, so we have reimplemented these steps to ensure this continues to be the case. Here is a summary of what we’ve done to keep everyone safe in the Restaurant:

  • Continue to operate with table service.
  • Tables spaced at 2m apart.
  • Designated entrance and exit to the Restaurant.
  • Each member of your party will be asked to provide contact details or scan the QR code at our entry point for Track & Trace purpose.
  • Protective screens up at till points.
  • Contactless payments encouraged.
  • Face coverings must be worn, except for when seated.

Do we need to book a table?

No booking is required when dining with us in the Restaurant. During busy times, a queue system maybe in operation.

How will things operate in the Restaurant?

We will continue to operate with a reduced capacity in the Restaurant to ensure we can observe social distancing measures. We will also continue to operate with a one-way system, with a designated entrance and exit.

Upon arrival, each member of your party will be asked to provide contact details or scan the QR code at our entry point for Track & Trace purpose. If you do not wish to provide your details, then we have the right to deny you access to the Restaurant.

You will then be shown to your table by a member of our team. Face coverings must be worn at all times, except for when seated.

The Restaurant Courtyard will remain open should you decide to dine outside. We have space for 86 outside and a further 250 people in our indoor area of the Restaurant. During busy periods, a queue system maybe in operation.

Once you are ready to order, you will need to make your way to the designated till point, which our team will advise you of. Please make a note of your table number before paying for your food and/or drinks. At this point we’ll ask if you would like any condiments for your food.

What food and drink options are available?

We will be expanding on our menu from our current offering in the Restaurant Courtyard. We will once again be serving breakfast items as well as extending our lunchtime menu. There will also be a selection of cakes, traybakes and snacks available as well as hot and cold drinks.

How many people can sit together?

There is to be no more than six to a table as the rule of six will apply when dining in the Restaurant. We must ask that you do not move any tables in the Restaurant to ensure that we minimise any risk to others.

How long can I stay in the Restaurant?

Although we will not be placing a time limit on your stay in the Restaurant, we kindly ask that everyone be mindful of the fact that others might be waiting to take a seat, so as soon as you have finished your food and/or drinks, we kindly ask that you make your way back into store to continue with your shopping or your day.

Will you be doing takeaway food?

All food must be consumed within the Restaurant.

Are you still serving afternoon tea?

We will be serving Afternoon Tea for Two in the Restaurant from May 24th 2021. We will be releasing our online booking system soon
