The Pugh Family would like to welcome you into the new Café Restaurant, The Orange Tree at Pugh’s Garden Village in Wenvoe. The smell of freshly baked cakes, ground coffee beans and a roaring log fire fills the air and will entice its family of customers into a cosy welcoming environment.
All the food is freshly prepared in the Orange Tree kitchen, and where possible using locally sourced Welsh produce. All the eggs are free range from local farms. They serve rustic, traditional home-cooked food for breakfast, lunch and light bites from 9am to 5pm (hot food served until 3pm).
The menu has a plethora of Gluten Free, Vegetarian and Vegan options and meals can be prepared to specific dietary requirements upon request, the beauty of having their very own chef.
With the garden centre being at the heart of the business, Pugh’s want to become as transparently sustainable as they can, and help tackle the war on waste. All packaging and takeaway options including coffee cups are plastic free and 100% compostable. For the first month of opening, they are encouraging their customers to take their coffee cups home and plant them in their garden with their free seeds to encourage them to be a part of the local environmental campaign.
Pugh’s have tried to become as energy efficient as possible from the get go by installing a log fire to provide heat, and they are bagging up ground coffee beans at the end of each day to give to customers to use as a fertiliser in their gardens. Composting with coffee is a great way to make use of something that would otherwise end up taking space in landfill. The benefit of using coffee grounds as a fertiliser is that it adds organic material to the soil, which helps support plant growth.
“Absolutely loved our quick coffee and cake stop at The Orange Tree, will be back soon for a main meal. Fabulous location, beautifully done, my new favourite place”
“The Orange Tree cafe is really lovely. Nice ambience, great coffee/food and very friendly staff. Nothing too much trouble. Been 3 times in the past week. Love it.”
Little seedlings are catered for with their versatile Children’s Menu, again offering free-from options as well as an outdoor play area where Terry the Tractor lives.
They have brought the outdoors in with a cosy rustic environment that will leave visitors feeling as if they’ve just dined in an indoor garden, with its botanical wall, wooden facades, natural features and ambient lighting creating a unique dining experience.
Tables do not need to be booked, it’s a case of visiting the garden centre, finding a seat, taking the weight off and deciding what to taste first. The setting is perfect for all generations, taking time to chit chat with friends and just enjoying a lovely few hours in a relaxing environment.
Onsite Parking is available and free, it’s the perfect central location from miles around.
