However, due to government guidelines, the toilet & shower washroom facilities are still closed for the campers.
The Tearoom is open from 8am-3.30pm every day with a limited menu and seating, all outside dining. We are offering our famous breakfasts, delicious locally roasted coffee, some new homemade treats (Sausage Rolls, Sun blushed Tomato, Feta& Onion Vegetarian Rolls), and our licensed bar with some new local lagers from Braybrooke Beer Co - And of course, our favorite homemade cakes and desserts. We will start our Sunday lunch again on the 23rd of May with the new marquee set up outside and a few tables in the conservatory available for bookings only.
But until then...
Please note, face masks must be worn while being served at the servery point and collection point and if you come inside to use the toilets. Each individual customer must sign into the NHS track & trace or visitor book.
