Grab a bite to eat

You'll find a Refreshment Kiosk in the car park and the Timber Yard Café open from 10am–4pm serving a limited range of hot and cold drinks and some light snacks to take away. We’ve introduced new safety measures including screens at our tills 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.
