Our opening hours are 3pm Wednesday till 3pm Sunday in June & July. From the 1st August we will be open 7 days a week.

Our restaurant will be closed for evening meals Sundays, Mondays & Tuesdays. We are not currently offering lunches.”

It goes on: “We will of course reopen these services fully as soon as we are able.”
