Our shop is now open 11-4pm every day except for Tuesdays and Wednesdays. For the safety of staff and visitors we've introduced social distancing measures and changes to payment, which will be via card only. In line with government guidance, you're required to wear a face covering in most enclosed spaces. Please bring one with you.

The Tack Room Kiosk is open serving a range of drinks, snacks and light lunches. We’ve introduced new safety measures including spaced out 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. It is not possible to drop-in to the Tack Room Kiosk without a ticket to Canons Ashby.
