Following the Government’s Eat Out to Help Out Scheme, otherwise known as a Dishi from Rishi, we have decided that we would offer in September our own incentive by offering free tea, coffee and apple juice to those people eating in the café
After carefully considering the current situation the directors of the Old Saw Mill have concluded that it will be possible to safely produce delicious apple juice again this year. After a bumper harvest last year everyone is hoping for another successful year in 2020, in spite of the pandemic.
We will be receiving apples from local gardens from Tuesday 1st September. Please bring all your spare apples to the Old Saw Mill, Back River Street and leave them in the collection trays behind the cycle rail next to the front door. They can be left there whilst the café is open (9.00am – 3.00pm Mon – Friday) or at weekends.
Astbury Mere visitor centre can no longer receive apples so please don’t take them there.
Our sincere thanks in advance to everyone who supports us by donating apples. Up to 70% of apples grown in this country are left to rot in gardens so let’s buck the trend in Congleton and use them for a good cause.
Last year nearly 3000 bottles of juice and 600l of cider were produced. There are still some left so hurry up and get some before they are gone.”

We have one more week to go for the Eat Out to Help Out scheme, so why not come to the café on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next week. You can all have 50% off your food up to a maximum of £10 per person. We are also extending our opening hours to 3pm in anticipation of the rush!
