The Italian Garden is closed 14.00 – 15.30 for a wedding ceremony on Saturday 4th June

We would prefer all tickets to be pre booked, however we do understand that weather plays a big part in your decision to visit us. So you are able to book up to an hour before your chosen time slot so then you can be a little more spontaneous!

Please book using a tablet or computer, where possible as this ensures your connection to the payment gateway remains consistent and strong, so reducing the chance of failed bookings.

Online booking allows us to stagger arrival times across the day, minimising queuing on arrival. It also allows us to keep a close eye on capacity and ensure visitor numbers remain at a manageable level.

Food and Drink

We are very busy at the moment refreshing the tearoom and working on some exciting new food and drink options.

We will continue to serve a wide selection of home made cakes, soup and sandwiches as well as our wonderful barista coffee, which will also be available to purchase as a take away option at our kiosk.

Our focus this year will be to work with local suppliers where possible and use ethical items on our menu such as fair trade, locally produced, free range and zero plastic.

We are also developing our special offerings such as our popular afternoon teas and  ploughman’s lunches.
