Feeling peckish?

The Piggery tea-room is open, serving a limited range of takeaway hot and cold drinks and some light snacks. We’ve introduced new safety measures including closure of our indoor seating areas, screens at our till and collection points, and waymarked routes. In line with government guidance, you're required to wear a face covering in most enclosed spaces. Please bring one with you. 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.
