Social Distancing Measures

There will be a restriction of the amount of customers in the shop and cafe (including the outdoor areas) at one time. During busy times you may need to queue a while before entering the shop (they do say patience is a virtue!). Please note that card payment is encouraged and preferred.

Toilets are available for cafe customers, but they are locked, just ask for a key from the friendly cafe staff, this is to ensure that washroom facilities are kept clean and safe.
