The Coffee Garden - "Looks amazing! Definitely the place to go!" Customer comment July 2020

The Restaurant is open as the ‘Coffee Garden’

– probably the safest place to treat yourself to a coffee & a bite to eat, or to meet up with a friend, locally.

“Visited yesterday, felt perfectly safe, staff were just brilliant” customer comment July 2020

What has changed?

You will arrive at the Coffee Garden through the side doors of the restaurant, located opposite the Customer Services desk in the Garden Centre. Just ask if you can’t find us.

On arrival, please wait to be seated –  customers will be allocated a table. You will be invited up to the counter to order and to pay safely. Your food and drinks will be brought to your table.

In this way we can keep all our customers and staff away from each other, at a safe distance. Things may take a little longer, but we will do our best to serve you promptly, with a priority of keeping everyone comfortable and safe.

As required, or as the situation develops, we will change the way we are working to keep everyone safe and to ensure you can enjoy great food and great service. Please be patient while we all learn a new way of bringing you the Johnsons Restaurant experience you love.


More Good News!

From Wednesday 15th July, Johnsons will be passing the new VAT discount on to our customers in the restaurant, so your bill will be discounted a little from the advertised prices on the menu! You’re welcome!





The New ‘Normal’!

We have a maximum of 6 people per table please. Customers from no more than 2 households per table please.

We are required by the Government to take the names and contact details of all customers visiting the Coffee Garden. We will keep these records for the required 21 days and they will then be destroyed in line with GDPR regulations.
