Open from 10am our café offers some great dishes made in-house using fresh, seasonal produce including cakes and other treats. We offer a range of hot and cold meals as well as a selection of vegetarian food. Kids can enjoy the pic 'n' mix lunchbox selections.

If you're in a hurry, our 'grab and go' kiosk sells a range of sandwiches, crisps and ice cream.
