To help with social distancing we have moved our location only 1/4 mile away past the original location. We are now serving food from the Hidden River Barn until our weddings can re-commence. To find us please carry on past the cafe along the track until you find the large Barn on your lefthandside, there is signage on the Original location as how to get to the barn. Our opening hours are the same. Please book a table to avoid disappointment on the link above or call 01228792489, many thanks Hidden River Cafe.
