Current Update on Covid-19

Friday 17th July 2020

We are so excited to finally announce that in line with Government Guidelines our restaurant is now OPEN.

As we have such a large venue, with plenty of beautiful outside space for socially distanced dining, we are able to open safely whilst adhering to all the rules and regulations surrounding Covid-19 safe practice.

We would recommend that if you wish to come along you call ahead to book a table to avoid disappointment (although we do always try and accept walk-ins if possible).  Telephone 01634 235059 and press option 1 or email  If there is no answer please do leave a message and one of our team will return your call to take your booking.

The Giggleberry Tree is also now open with appropriate safety steps in place to enable you to browse safely the unique home and garden wares that are available to purchase.

We look forward to seeing you all again soon.

With regard to future wedding bookings we won’t assess these until we know more about how easing of lockdown will affect our future weddings as at the moment no-one knows how as a wedding industry we will properly come out of lock-down. We are hopeful that weddings will soon be able to go ahead as planned (albeit maybe with a few alterations).  However we don’t have access to information any quicker than the general public – so we don’t know any more than you unfortunately. 

We will do everything in our power to carry on and fulfil our couples dream wedding day – following all of the government’s cleaning / sanitising recommendations.  As the Government have currently put restrictions on gatherings, outdoor venues INCLUDING well ventilated marquees are considered to be safer than indoor venues.  We have a beautiful permanent vast marquee structure with bi-folding windows all along one length which can be thrown open to allow free circulation of fresh air.  And we are literally surrounded by beautiful orchards, meadows and woodland which means guests can easily spread out.

Our office has now re-opened so we have access to emails / phone calls going forward so are able to answer any of your questions / concerns fairly quickly.
