Dean Heritage Centre Coffee Shop

eat out to help out!

You can enjoy one of the coffee shop's fabulous pre-booked picnics, ploughman's lunch or afternoon tea on the 'eat out to help out scheme on Wednesday 12th, Wednesday 19th, Wednesday 26th and Bank Holiday Monday

All the take-away food will qualify but you must eat it on site in one of our picnic areas, on the balcony or on seating around our pond.

We are still unable to have seating inside the coffee shop as we do not have the space to allow for the correct social distancing guidelines to be adhered to.

The Cafe is now open Thursday to Sunday between 10am and 3pm for take-aways only or pre-booked picnics. We've got extra outdoor seating in one of the most scenic locations in the Forest. Come and join us!

Dogs are welcome but must be kept on leads around our Millpond.

From Thursday 9th July you will be able to pick up pre-booked picnics to enjoy by our mill pond or if you are walking in the area you can book a picnic to take with you.
