We’re celebrating being around for 2 years this October and not only have we won a host of awards and accolades for our concept, food and service, but we have been helping to tackle local youth unemployment through our training and employment programmes for young people aged 14-25!

Following the long days and warmth of Summer in our fabulous garden, we are now looking towards autumn and winter to ensure we can use the great space for ongoing family activities, including our ‘Yuletide Yurt’ which will arrive the first week of December and be launched on Friday 6th with live music from 7pm!

You can be pleased that your custom is helping to tackle youth unemployment. Our social enterprise EAT Pennines trains and employs young people aged 16-25 to make sure that they have the skills and experience to move into work or further training in the food sector. Chris and Justine tell their story with a short video. Click here to see their story. We work with a wide range of young people, but are also committed to helping those at most disadvantage in the work place, including young offenders and young people with a disability.
