Our licensed café opens at 10am and you can choose between sitting in the café or outside in the tea garden. This is where you'll find our full menu, with a variety of dishes, including our unique dishes reflecting the spirit of Nymans. The main menu is served from 12 - 2.30pm and for our younger visitors we offer hot meals and children's lunch boxes, as well as bottle and baby-food warming facilities.     

Lighter snacks made with seasonal produce are also on offer as well as a deliciously tempting array of cakes and ice creams.
