Takeaway Option

As well as eating inside and outside of the sandwich shop, we also offer a full takeaway service, either from our counter or utilising our wonderful handmade stable door to the side of the shop to save time coming inside, our stable door is ideal for dog walkers who just need to grab and go without worrying about where to leave your beloved pooch

Phone your order for collection through to us and make things even more speedy, collection either over the counter or from the stable door with plenty of parking available

Buffet Catering

We offer buffet catering for events, from Children’s Birthday Parties, Weddings, Christenings, Wakes and Christmas parties. Business meetings and functions. Please contact us today for more information about our event catering

The Fern Sandwich Bar is as the name says, a sandwich bar, but we also serve a wide range of hot and cold drinks, including lovely freshly ground coffee and some wonderful different teas, yummy milkshakes and healthy smoothies

Having somewhere to sit and chat with friends over a coffee and slice of cake or something light to eat, we want to be your new community hub, with baby changing and disabled facilities, we look forward to welcoming everyone.
