COVID Update

Due to COVID restrictions on numbers of people in a confined space, and hygiene and cleaning requirements of shared spaces, we have decided to restrict the use of our guest kitchen to volunteer staff only during the busy summer season. However, we will still have our restaurant open during summer for breakfast and dinner. We also have a BBQ available for guest use.
