Old Barn breakfast

Due to popular demand our Old Barn breakfast is back!

Available Monday to Saturday from 9.30am to 12 noon, the breakfast uses ingredients from local suppliers and offers a hearty start to the day for just £7.25. Breakfast rolls are also available throughout the day.

Afternoon tea

We are now serving our popular afternoon teas, with all the scrumptious ingredients you would expect: a selection of sandwiches, scones and other sweet treats, and a lovely pot of tea.

Advance booking is essential – see our details at the bottom of this page.

Senior citizens offer

Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday we are offering a two-course meal for £10 to all senior citizens.

The menu changes every week and will be advertised on our Facebook page as well as the board in our café.

Under 5s eat free

Also on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, children under 5 will be able to eat for free when they are with an accompanying adult who is ordering food.

Weekly specials

Our specials board changes weekly so keep an eye out in the café or on our Facebook page.

Sunday lunch at the Old Barn

We are now offering Sunday lunches by advance booking only. Priced at £14.95 for a main course and pudding, there is also a vegetarian option available which must be requested when booking.

Holiday homeowners’ discount

Don’t forget that all YHL Parks holiday home owners receive a 15% discount when visiting the Old Barn Coffee Shop – except for Sunday lunches which are £14.95 for two courses.

Keeping everyone safe

The rule of six still applies inside and outside the café and, as always, we will be following strict social distancing and hygiene procedures to ensure everyone enjoys their visit in a safe environment. This includes operating a waitress service only and cleaning menus thoroughly after every use.

The new QR code for the NHS Track and Trace app is on display for customers to register their stay, but we can also take a name and contact number from those who are unable to use the app.

All our tables and seating are set out at between 1.5 and 2 metres apart, using as much indoor and outdoor space as possible.

We are also offering a takeaway service for those who prefer not to eat in with us.
