Eating and Shopping

A bite to eat

We have reopened Redwoods Restaurant which is now accessible once inside the estate, with the addition of a takeaway kiosk open on South Glade (subject to availability). Both outlets will be serving takeaway hot and cold drinks, some light snacks and ice cream. (Please note, both kiosks are accessible with a pre-booked ticket only). We’ve introduced new safety measures including closure of our seating areas, screens at our till and collection points, and waymarked routes. We’ll also only be accepting card payment. We look forward to welcoming you back and know that you’ll support us to make this a safe experience for everyone. Picnics are also welcome.
