Covid-19 Update: Garden Pop-up Opening from 8 July

We are delighted to announce the opening of our new pop-up garden – offering guests the ultimate alfresco dining experience from Wednesday 8 July. We cannot wait for you to join us for a great British summer – outdoors at Applegarth Farm.

Our chefs will be serving up a Kadai Firebowl cooked menu which celebrates the season's finest ingredients and showcases their creative summer flair. Furthermore, the vibe is set to be chilled & relaxed and a super warm – socially distanced – welcome awaits!

As you know, there will be a new ‘normal’ for us all to get used to and you may notice a few changes when you visit - these safeguarding measures are in place to ensure you feel safe and secure. Whether it's a leisurely lunch with friends & family, belated birthday celebration or a long overdue supper for two, our team is working hard to ensure we provide a safe, warm & welcoming experience for all.

Pre-booking your table online is essential and all reservations will adhere to a 1.5 hour time slot unless otherwise stated. British weather permitting, our garden will welcome diners all summer long as follows:
Wednesday & Thursday: 12 noon - 3pm
Friday: 12 noon - 3pm & 5.30pm - 8pm
Saturday: 12 noon - 8pm
Sunday: 12 noon - 3pm

As we prepare to open the garden inline with our new safety policy, please note that our regular Friday evening takeaway will be suspended on 10 July, resuming again on 17 July. Our chilled made-to-order restaurant meals remain available to order online along with everything else you would expect to see on our virtual shelves. Of course, we welcome visitors to the farm shop too.

As a small family-run business we continue to feel incredibly grateful for your support and hope you can enjoy our lovely restaurant garden and Kadai food over the coming weeks whilst continuing to shop online and at the farm.

Further information will be available on our website shortly and of course you are welcome to email me with any questions at

In the meantime, please stay safe, keep healthy and we will look forward to seeing you again very soon.

All the best,
