Keeping safe

We’ve made a few changes to help keep everybody safe.

There are protective screens around the serving area and we’re currently only able to accept card payments – either contactless or chip and pin. We have placed hand sanitiser at the tea room entrance for you to use, and we’re also using disposable crockery and wooden cutlery.

To follow social distancing guidelines, we will allow one visitor at the till and one by the menu area at any one time. Please do not enter the building if there are two people already inside, and please only one person per family / visitor group. There is a one-way system in place so you will exit via the fire door.

The picnic tables have been spread out to make the outdoor seating area more spacious, and litter bins have been made easily accessible for your rubbish – please help us keep Dunwich Heath tidy and a safe place for nature.

All money raised goes towards the conservation of Dunwich Heath so please do visit the tearoom during your visit!
