The new café in the gardens finally opened on Saturday, after a few inevitable delays with the building work. The conversion has been done beautifully and it all looks lovely. Thank you all for your patience and continued support throughout all the noise and disruption. Do come along and pay a visit as soon as you can and let us know what you think.
It is called the Apple Café, because the building was originally the apple store when the garden served as a kitchen garden for the High House. It is being run as a separate business by Kim and Richmond. They are professional cooks and are serving a good range of delicious cakes, as well as light lunches. They have a great range of teas and some excellent locally made cordials and ice creams.
Their phone number for group bookings or enquiries is 01760 755218 and their opening hours are 9:30-4:30 Mon-Sat and 10:00-4:00 on Sundays. They are going to be running for just two months this autumn as a trial run to find out what people want and then they will run from March to October next year.
