Hello & Welcome to Conkers!
The Garden Centre is fully open, with masks optional and hand sanitizer at the entrance for the time being.
The River Bank Tea Room is open as normal from Wednesday - Sunday, serving cakes, sandwiches and hot meals. For the time being, on Monday & Tuesday the menu will be limited to drinks, cakes and afternoon teas. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
