Following on from our successes with both Facebook and Instagram, we’re delighted to announce that you can now order directly from our website! Both Abbey Mill Shop and the Cider Press have begun digitising their stock, with Boat House, Wye Valley Craft Association and Woodland Studio soon to follow. You can now freely browse our collections from the comfort of your own home via our shop tab. Our stock is also frequently updated so be sure to regularly check out what we have to offer! Our on-line shop is a great option for those who want to shop locally and support independent businesses, but who may be a bit strapped for time! Happy shopping!
Having successfully launched our Abbey Mill Tintern Facebook account, we’re further expanded our online/ digital presence to Instagram! Thanks to Instagram’s ‘Story’ feature, we’ve been able to easily keep all of our followers up-to-date with the latest developments at Abbey Mill over the busy Christmas period! We’re using the network to help keep our customers informed about the festive goodies available at the Mill and (more importantly) our remaining availability for our legendary Christmas lunches!
These are trying times, a period in which we’re required to rethink how we go about living our lives. It’s not only businesses which have been affected but also the community, with many in Monmouthshire suffering from total isolation due to the county’s rugged landscape. Luckily, our team have been playing an active hand in combatting this isolation by introducing Abbey Mill Deliveries: pie and pasty boxes, individual and whole cake boxes and celebration and afternoon High Tea boxes! Using the world’s biggest social media platform, Facebook, as well as telephone ordering, Abbey Mill is connecting with both long standing and new customers, ensuring that they have everything they need to get through this bumpy period.
Despite the country being locked down, the team at Abbey Mill has been working hard in the background to be ready to reopen as soon as things are safer. Since the confinement was first announced our team has been working to completely refurbish our Woodsaw & Wheel cafe and restaurant, to give our visitors yet another reason to come and see us once the restrictions are lifted! See our home page refurbishment overview and our latest coffee shop menus for a taster!
We’re been thinking of ways to keep our friends and visitors smiling, and help them celebrate their special occasions and still stay safe across lockdown. So many people have ordered our Afternoon High Tea Boxes, which we’ve been delighted to deliver to their doors. Christopher Wilson kindly told us about his experience through Facebook:
Treated my parent’s to an Abbey Mill afternoon tea yesterday. It was hand delivered to my door and was beautifully and thoughtfully put together. Everything was delicious and it was excellent value for money. A great treat for loved ones over Christmas and something to share with the family. Cannot recommend highly enough!Christopher Wilson, Facebook
If you have a birthday, anniversary, special occasion or just really need a treat, please look at our box selections on our Deliveries page. You can phone through your order on 01291 689228 or email us here. We’re open for collections too and can meet most special dietary requirements. Life’s so much sweeter with a slice of cake!
We have a truly heart-warming story to share with you all! As the second nation lockdown has (finally) come to a close, Abbey Mill has opened its doors to the general public once again! Due the Abbey Mill Centre being pet friendly, one of our patrons decided to bring her dog along. She had such a delightful time catching up with our staff members and enjoying one of the many tasty treats which we serve at the Mill, that she was totally unaware that her dog decided to go for a wander! As the Abbey Mill has been at the beating heart of Tintern for over 20yrs, we were quick on the draw! Ensuring that everyone we knew was contacted in the hopes of finding the lost dog! Safe to say that it wasn’t long before one of our many contacts identified the dog and returned her back to the Mill! But best of all, it turns out that the lost dog was called none other than Abby! What a fairy-tale story!
Afternoon High Tea boxes are really popular this week. If you order as a gift for someone, we always include a personalised message free of charge. We still have spaces available for this weekend delivery. Please contact us for more information and see our Deliveries Menu choices.
