The Gardens Group - afternoon tea (9)

From a weekly craft corner and knitting circle to a mother and toddler coffee morning and monthly book club, The Apple Tree Restaurant at Brimsmore Gardens has a whole host of activities to keep those January blues at bay.

Whether you’re an experienced maker, looking for a place to channel your inner creativity or fancy trying something new for 2015, craftspeople of all abilities are welcome. Our arts and crafts expert, Jess Mitchell, will be on hand at the craft corner and knitting circle to help you complete those outstanding projects, as well as tips and offering new ideas to try your hand at.

Mothers and toddlers are always welcome at The Apple Tree Restaurant, but every Monday in January the toddler’s brunch will be on offer at £2.95 from 9:30am – 11:30am. What better way to start the week, without having to worry about the mad breakfast rush on those dark and dreary Monday mornings.

For more information about any of these activities please get in touch with Jess at
