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 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!
