Located at Poplar Tree Garden Centre, Shincliffe, Durham; Brambles Coffee Shop opened its doors to customers on Saturday 18th February 2006.
This venture had been long awaited and developed through new ownership of the Garden Centre.
Poplar Tree Garden Centre in the past few years has been taken over by Brambledown Landscapes. Brambledown and Poplar Tree both originally were based on the same site at Shincliffe and over 30 years ago the two directors decided to concentrate on their chosen preferences. Brambledon moved to a site in Brandon Village and Poplar Tree stayed and established in Shincliffe. Both directors of each respective companies stayed great friends over the years, and when Colin Wood of Poplar Tree decided to retire, it was offered first to Brambledown Landscapes to re-establish the historical link between the two.
Brambledown now are looking to carry on Colin's great work with the Coffee Shop being one of many improvements along the way.
Brambles Coffee Shop is situated within a large open plan timber construction which seats up to 100 guests indoors and further tables and sheltered accomodation found in the beautiful outdoor surroundings. The recent addition of an overflow marque has been erected to supply outdoor sheltered seating and accomodate the extra demand for seating during peak times. It lies within yards of the River Wear where Poplar Tree offers beautiful walks and picnic areas. The location within the prestigious village of Shincliffe allows for ease of access from Durham City but located in tranquil settings.
Poplar Tree Garden Centre is developing all the time and the Management have many more exciting ideas and changes for customers to look forward to.
Please come down and see for yourselves!
