Fat Apples Café and Wild Campsite!

Temporary Early Closure

We have taken the difficult decision to close 2 weeks early. With cases of C19 rising on the Lizard Peninsula and the fact that a regular visitor to the cafe, although having tested negative has a member of their family who is positive.
This combined with deteriorating weather and customers moving inside, with limited seating making social distancing harder to manage. We feel, for the safety of our customers and our family, the best course of action is to shut temporarily.
Thank you for your understanding and support for what has been a strange season. We look forward to welcoming you back warmly and resuming a normal trade in December.
Thanks for your understanding.
