Sandwell Park Farm tearooms plan

Published 22nd December 2017

Visitors to Sandwell Valley Country Park will get free access to the award-winning tearooms at Sandwell Park Farm - in a pilot scheme to make visits more enjoyable. 

Currently, people wishing to take morning coffee, lunches and afternoon tea at the tearooms have to pay to gain access to the general farm attractions. 

But now a special scheme is to be introduced to give people just wishing to visit the tearooms, to get a breakfast buttie or afternoon tea, free access.

This will benefit walkers and families who visit the Valley to walk the footpaths and who may have visited the farm on many occasions and just want to take refreshments and shy away from paying the entry fee.

Cabinet member Councillor Paul Moore said: "This is a pilot scheme which will get under way in January and will benefit people who just want to pop in for a drink or a snack. 

"Under the new scheme tearoom customers will need to collect a wristband from reception which will entitle them to free access to the refreshment area."

Councillor Moore said it was hoped that the new scheme will benefit the thousands of people who visit the Valley and help to boost trade at the highly-praised tea rooms.

The Sandwell Valley tearoom serves a wide range of foods ranging from the breakfast food, home-made cream teas and speciality coffees to satisfy event the hungriest appetite after explore the vast array of walking routes in the Valley.
