Inside the cafe


Liz Furness of Karat Catering runs the ever popular country cafe, extending the café opening hours to match those for the Country Christmas shop in 2019, 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. The kiosk will also be open on busy weekends enabling customers to avoid queues.

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!
