LATE SEPTEMBER OPENING FOR GARDENS

We're pleased to advise that construction work on Jordans Mill gardens is well underway and that we're hoping to have them open by late September. After the awful prolonged winter weather and a few other delays and set-backs, the team are doing an amazing job at getting this final part of the site open, even in the hot weather! Tonnes of top soil arrived last week and very quickly the soil mountain has been distributed to the right areas. The path is in place and it won't be long before planting is underway. We can't wait to be able to show you the beautiful, fitting work that Chelsea Flower Show gold winners Toll+Kitson have designed.

Summer treats at the Riverside Café

The Riverside Café is gearing up for the summer and has added some treats to the menu for visitors to enjoy.

You can now treat yourself to a luxury Maynard's Dairy Ice cream at Jordans Mill. Made locally in Dunton, you can choose from vanilla, strawberry, black cherry, raspberry, chocolate, fudge, mango fruit ice, lemon fruit ice and blackcurrant sorbet.

We have also teamed up with Maynards Dairy to create a delicious 'coconut and honey yoghurt with crunchy granola', which is delicious any time of day.

If it's too hot outside for your coffee fix, why not try it iced?

You will also notice that our drinks refrigerator is stocked up with some nice cold beers!

There's plenty of seating on our verandah over the River Ivel, or it's a bit cooler inside if you want a break from the sunshine.

'HOLME-MADE' LOAVES – THE BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD

Few pleasures in life beat smelling freshly baked bread first thing in the morning. Our breakfast visitors can now enjoy the aroma of our very own bread coming straight out of the oven everyday. The chefs are baking different varieties throughout the week, so that visitors can carry on enjoying Jordans Mill's food at home. They are now available to buy and take away from the Mill Store Shop but you have to be quick...they're going like hot cakes!

Swanning around the Mill

Our team have been very excited to watch a swan and her signets taking a daily paddle past the Riverside Cafe!  The decking over the River Ivel is a great spot for nature watching, while enjoying a cuppa.  We'd love to hear your stories of passing wildlife and see your photos via our Facebook page www.facebook.com/jordansmill or on Twitter @jordansmill.
