Our Homemade Produce

You know all too well that we make our own apple juice, cider and cider vinegar but something that we are trying hard to produce this year is a variety of jams and chutneys alongside this.

We currently have a mixed selection of jams, chutneys and marmalade.

Our jars are:

£2.80 for a single jar
£5 for 2
£7.50 for 3
We also have local honey on sale, which we have sourced from Mike Pearson, priced at £5.

Come in and have a look at the delicious selection of homemade produce we have to offer. 

Mothers Day Tea’s

And to something we’ve not done before, Ruth is gaining an enthusiastic following for her afternoon teas either in the cafe or as takeaways. So, would you like afternoon tea for your Mother’s Day party; treat Mum to something rather special and all homemade; well other than the Prosecco! Just £12 per person.

Contact us for more details and to book, either via Facebook on ring 01260 277658.

Christmas Lunch.

Christmas Lunch comes in 3 forms at The Old Saw Mill this year:

On Christmas Day we’ll serve Christmas Lunch to those who would otherwise be on their own, price £12 but as previous years’ sponsorship for the lunches could happen and reduce the price on the day.
The Meals on Wheels service we established over lockdowns will deliver Christmas Lunch on Christmas Eve, Friday 24th
And during the month of December, we’ll have Christmas lunch on the menu every day but please book beforehand, price £10 including pudding, cracker included!

Home cooked meals!

As the cold weather begins to creep in our café and upstairs kitchen have been cooking up a storm of their own to keep you warm at Lunchtime here at The Old Saw Mill.

It’s not only our specials that are going down a treat, but our Lunch club service is still successfully providing meals once a week for 60+ individuals who are socially isolated in their homes. Thank you to everyone involved in making this service possible.

We would obviously like to thank all those customers who have been to see us and after 3 weeks we are quite pleased with our progress. From next week our rooms upstairs will also have visitors and so thanks again to them for supporting us.

From 3rd August and throughout August we will be participating in the Government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme which means that on Mondays to Wednesdays, all our food will have a discount of 50% applied.
