Currently we are in a transitional period, awaiting a new cafe area.  We shall be redesigning the kitchen in due course.  However actions have been put into place to improve the kitchen.  Firstly the hot tap to the hand wash sink is now fully operational and extra hand drying has been provided.  Repairs have been made to the flooring, making it easier to clean and kick boards have been added to all kitchen units.  Allergen information has been updated and displayed in the cafe area, together with new signage relating to allergens.

We are continually striving to improve our service and shall be applying for a re-inspection in due course.
