The Tea Room for Garden Visitors is open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (plus Bank Holiday Mondays) from 12 noon until 5pm (unless the weather is v bad). The Tea Room is staffed by our fantastic volunteers. We aim to increase the tearoom opening in the weeks ahead so please check for updates. This week the Tea Room is also open on Mon 17th, Tues 18th May, & Thurs 20th May.
We now have teams to open at weekends (plus some extra weekdays when we can) but the tea room is at the heart of the garden and we would love to open everyday. Maybe you can help? If you live locally and can volunteer in the tea room (once a week, fortnight or even per month) you will be very welcome ! Come alone and meet some new people or bring a friend or partner and work together, please email email@example.com
