You can park on street in the surrounding area (limited to 1 hour stays during the hours of 9am to 6pm), but free of restrictions from 6pm until 10am. Plus there is a public car park within 150 metres just along the high street.We are committed to helping the environment in the way we run our business and how we encourage our customers to be aware of environmental issues within both our business and the surrounding area.

We are aware that businesses such as ours have an impact on the environment and manage the business accordingly.
