Liz Furness of Karat Catering will be returning to run the ever popular country cafe after a break of five years. She has decided to extend the café opening hours to match those for the Country Christmas shop so they will be open from 9.30am to 5pm daily. For our Friday late night shopping evenings the new courtyard food servery will be open for mulled wine, mince pies and hot snacks. Many well-loved favourites will be returning as well as new tasty treats. Those with special requirements such as vegetarians and vegans or those with intolerances and allergies have not been forgotten either. Liz’s smiling staff will be there to serve freshly made cakes and savouries, soups, bacon rolls, coffee, tea, mulled wine and hot chocolate. If you are looking for a break from the shopping or for a little pre-Christmas indulgence then look no further! She will also be running a small courtyard kiosk at busy weekends enabling customers to avoid the queues.
Please note that the cafe takes credit cards (no minimum spend).
In the Country Christmas Shop we accept all major debit/credit cards inc. American Express, but we do not have a cashback facility.
The individual British Crafts stalls are all run separately. Payment arrangements for these vary so please be prepared to pay for some items with cash.
