Ferndale Coffee Shop will re-open after 17th May.
After much consideration and assessment we have decided that we cannot re-open Ferndale Coffee Shop in any form until the next phase of the UK Covid Road Map from the 17th May.
From the 12th of April hospitality businesses are able to serve drinks and food outside but we are unable to provide cover against rain, and serve effectively.
the problem is that if it rains during a meal or while enjoying a scone and coffee, customers aren’t allowed back into the building to shelter from the weather to finish their food and drinks.
From the 17th of May hospitality establishments will be able to serve inside again. however, we aren’t expecting any announcements for the arrangements and conditions we will then be able to operate under. The government won’t announce these until the last moment because it’s all about ‘data not dates’.
Until then we will continue to host the Coffee Wagon in the car park.
