The Potting Shed Cafe-
(7th November)- Following the announcement that St Albans/ Herts will be in the new Tier 2 category when the lockdown ends on the 3rd December (meaning households wont be able to mix indoors). We have made the difficult decision to keep the café closed until further notice. Unfortunately, it won’t be economically viable for us to re-open the café with a likely large reduction in customer numbers. We will be monitoring the situation closely and will provide further updates in the new year.
Looking for something tasty for lunch or dinner? Call into our Farm Shop and choose from our great range of home grown veg, fresh meat, bread, milk, Cook ready meals, local cheeses, beers, fish and more! With such a great selection we’re sure to have something to make your meal time special.
