A SOMERSET museum has welcomed a father-and-daughter team to run a café on their site.

The Grain Store Café, located within the Somerset Rural Life Museum, is now run by John and Charley Higdon.

The pair are known locally for running the well-established My Fine Deli, a café, restaurant, and deli on Glastonbury High Street.

Charley said: “We are so excited to be expanding our business and look forward to developing The Grain Store Café into a bustling destination for local people and visitors to the town.

"The outdoor seating area offers fantastic views of the Tor and is a convenient stop off on the way to one of Glastonbury’s most prominent landmarks.

"We’re also conveniently placed to serve the Redlands estate, meaning that residents don't have to walk all the way to town to get a decent cup of coffee.”

 A variety of breakfast and lunch options are available, all made with fresh, local ingredients.

The lunch menu features light bites, ploughman’s, mezze boards, sandwiches, and homemade soup of the day, including vegan and gluten-free options.

Customers can also indulge in cakes and scones, or perhaps a beer, cider, or wine in the sunshine of the enclosed farmyard.

The Grain Store Café is open Tuesday to Sunday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm from Easter until October 31, and Tuesday to Saturday (from November 1 until the following Easter).
