This includes the Orangery Restaurant, Garden Cafe, Garden Centre, Karten Print Shop and Hotel 751.
We thank all our regular customers who support the College so well, and we will open again as soon as we are able to do so.
We look forward to updating you when we have a re-opening date. In the meantime thank you all for your support and custom.
