The Apple Tree Cafe will be open as usual and will remain so until the government instructs otherwise.

As you know, we are a local, independently run business. Just like all other small, local businesses we are taking our customer’s safety very seriously during this unprecedented situation. We want to reassure you that we are following government, Public Health England and expert’s advice on how operate with regard any future spread of Covid-19.

The cafe is well ventilated and there is space to sit apart, as well as having outdoor seating for those who prefer this. We have compostable take away cups and can do take away food and cakes.

For now we won’t provide paper napkins, unless specifically asked and would then ask that you take them away with you and dispose of them carefully. Everything goes through the commercial dishwasher – which is a sanitiser. We ensure there is plenty of soap and paper towels in the toilets.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support thus far.

If you are feeling unwell, look after yourself and your nearest and dearest and we look forward to seeing you again, when you are recovered.

To each and everyone – take care, we WILL come through this – as Ace says: KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON
