Derwen College’s Walled Garden Café is welcoming back customers with a new look and a new menu.

The Walled Garden Café, in Gobowen, near Oswestry, has reopened with a bright new look and delicious home-cooked menu which has already garnered high praise from visitors.

The college is welcoming back customers to eat inside the newly redecorated café, or to enjoy sunnier days in the outside seating area or stunning Walled Garden.

The Walled Garden Café offers a fun new gardening-themed menu offering a range of delicious delights. From a Gardener’s Breakfast for the early planters to a chunky sandwich for those who need a boost after some heavy digging, there’s something for the whole family.

The menu features breakfasts, sandwiches, jacket potatoes, salads, paninis, soup, hand-made cake and the new ‘sandini’ which has become a hot topic. For youngsters, there’s the ‘Seedlings Lunch Box’.

Pete Evans. Commercial Manager, says that staff and students are over the moon to welcome back customers to the Walled Garden Café, and that feedback from visitors has been overwhelming.

“Everyone is loving the new garden-themed menu which has something for everyone, even those who don’t have greenfingers!

“The new ‘sandini’ has got people talking. It has been likened to a toasted sandwich, but we think it’s a bit more special than that.”

“Visitors are enjoying our outside areas on sunny days, but for the more dreary days, we’ve brought an al fresco flavour inside as well.

“It’s wonderful to see our regular customers returning and to meet families, home-workers, couples and gardeners who are discovering us for the first time. “

As well as the delightful Walled Garden Café, the college site also features a new ‘Vintage Advantage’ charity shop and a well-stocked Garden Centre and Gift Shop, along with free parking and a friendly welcome.
