Our Restaurant is open following Government guidelines, helping you to keep safe whist enjoying your relaxing time with us.

We offer table service only, the tables are spaced out and all staff wear face coverings. Tables etc. are sanitised between services.

We run a track and trace information system for all restaurant customers, which involves all customers providing us with basic contact details which are kept securely and will only be used if called upon by local authorities.

For customers visiting with their 4-legged friends, we have now reopened our indoor seating area, which is accessed directly from the shop as previously. (Please note can one of your party que at main restaurant entrance and book in with the restaurant host.)

Book in advance or turn up on the day.

All of us here at Elm Court Garden Centre look forward to seeing you.

Christmas Events 2020

Sadly, this year, with all of the uncertainty and short notice changes to guidance and rules, in our joint efforts to try and combat Covid19, we have decided NOT to run our “meet Father Christmas” organised events in either our centre or restaurant. Holding events by its very nature brings large quantities of people together, exactly what we have to avoid this winter.

However, we will (Closer to Christmas) offer plenty of festive feel around the centre and a make it a place where you can enjoy your visit and feel safe and relaxed.

We understand this may be disappointing news for those who have visited us for many years, we have not taken this decision lightly but we do not feel in the current environment that it would be the right thing for us host major events.

Please do stay safe and avoid crowds!
