Feeling Festive in Eyam

Wow, I can’t believe it’s nearly December already! I hope you’re starting to feel festive and preparing to get those decorations up (and tuck into the mince pies).


Firstly, I’d like to say a huge and heartfelt “thank you” for your custom and support over the past year - it’s been full of challenges, but hopefully we’ve risen to them & come out stronger with the help of this amazing community. We’re always so grateful for our place in Eyam and the care shown by everyone - where else would the church group send you a card & bottle of wine to thank you for keeping on..?


Now onto some highlights for November and December…


Eyam Makers Market 20-28 November

It’s on, it’s wonderful, and we’re offering 10% off our entire menu for all visitors & stallholders. We expect to be busy so bookings advisable! The easiest way to do this is simply to call us on 01433 631293.


Chatsworth Christmas market

Chatsworth is magical at Christmas, so it’s really is worth a visit. Make a VG stop part of your day out for the full festive experience - we’re only 15mins away!


Christmas orders

Our Christmas order form is attached - you can order via email/phone or pick up an order form in the cafe. The last date for ordering is the 14th December.


In the café…

From this week we’ll have some amazing Christmas specials including John’s Festive burger and, on the cake front, seriously-delicious Stollen & our slightly-different frangipane mince pies (definitely worth a try).


We’re also full to the brim with Christmas gift ideas, from books and candles to games (Swear Snap is a great stocking filler!) and plenty more besides. The vast majority are sourced from other small Indy businesses who think sustainably about their ingredients and packaging.


Finally a huge thank you to my amazing team; Bev, John, Laura, Louis, Chloe, George & Anna for their hard work and humour this year. If you want to show them your appreciation too, look for the Christmas Tip Jar when you’re in the café.


We wish all of our friends & suppliers the merriest of Christmasses. We’ll be taking a short break after Christmas but plan to remain open during January & February (weather permitting!), Friday-Monday.


Warmest wishes this holiday period,

Sara & team VG
