We offer loyalty cards to all our customers. Additionally, our café is fully accessible, with wheelchair-friendly facilities and parking available via the top gate. Limited parking is available on-site, with additional parking at the Sandford Community Hall car park.

I’m thrilled to announce that in addition to our regular offerings, we’ll be hosting an annual summer BBQ! Join us for a delightful outdoor gathering filled with delicious food and great company.
