The Oaks Cafe

The Oaks Cafe

When Acorn Nursery first opened its doors in 1985, who could have guessed it would grow into the local institution it is today! We are now home to a large plant and garden centre, a gift shop and a cafe. Acorn Nursery is known and beloved for top-quality plants and garden products, unique gifts, and expert service from our team of qualified horticulturalists. 

 

Tony – Nursery Manager

Tony has been the Nursery Manager from the very beginning and what he doesn’t know about gardening isn’t worth knowing! He is constantly smiling, and will always take the time to advise you on how to get the most out of your garden or diagnose any garden woes. When he’s not in the nursery motivating his team, he’s busily writing Tony’s Tips in our monthly newsletter. Get on board the Tony juggernaut and your garden will thank you!

Sarah – Cafe Manager

The Oaks Café is run by Sarah, who works wonders in the café. People flock to our café because they know it’s the perfect venue to have a quick coffee, a delicious breakfast or a long boozy lunch. Sarah keeps the wheels turning in the café to ensure that you always get the same great dining experience we have all come to know and love.
