We’re open!

After a long Christmas break, we are very excited to be open again. We have a brand new, Nordic-inspired menu which can be viewed here. Please note: we now have a slightly later opening time of 9:00 am See you soon!

Our Christmas Menu is Here!

Finally! Chef Luis has been working on this special menu for months and it is finally gracing the Yurt tables. What’s more, if you ring up and pre-book you can enjoy a complimentary glass of prosecco to enjoy while we prepare your meal. This special menu, featuring a Festive Antipast and delicious Mushroom, Walnut and Blue Cheese parcels, is available between the 3rd and 22nd of December. So, make sure to book soon to avoid disappointment. You can view the menu by clicking the button below. See you soon!

Sweet Survival

Providing you with the sweet necessities to survive the winter weeks. Now that we have turned the clocks back and the light relief that the extra hour of sleep brought us has near enough worn off, the cold dark evenings have left us in need of an indulgence in the shape of some deliciously warm winter treats.  Something I like to call, the very necessary: “sweet survival” technique. This winter at the yurt, we are meeting that need! 

Why we love veg!

We often get asked about our choice of menu items here at The Yurt, particularly why we place vegetarian and vegan food at the forefront of our menu. We pride ourselves on making all our food delicious and our menu celebrates a range of different ingredients. However, we also feel it is vitally important that we do our bit for the environment wherever we can.

An Environmentally Friendly Yurt

In an age of plastic waste and landfill rubbish, it is important to be productive in the changing of habits. From little adjustments like turning the tap off or wearing a woolly jumper instead of turning the heating up, to big lifestyle changes like cutting out plastic or composting your own waste. We love all these ideas and work hard to be as ecologically sustainable as possible.

Christmas at The Yurt

This Festive Season brings new flavours and culinary delights and, nestled in a horticultural haven, we can’t help but get involved. Every year, Nicholsons comes to life at Christmas; tall trees as far as the eye can see, colourful wreaths hanging in abundance and fairy lights galore. This year though, we’ve jumped on the bandwagon with our own kitchen garden.

Yurt Promo video

We have had a lot of fun filming our promo video, and are delighted to share it with you via our YouTube channel. Watch the video below to see what we have been up to…

Wine & Dine at the Yurt

Wine. Wine. Wine. We love wine. We love cooking with it, we love drinking it, we love talking about it. Therefore, it seems only fitting that we put lots of care and attention into designing the perfect wine-list for the Yurt at Nicholsons.

Our Yurt and its History

We believe that our Yurt is pretty special, and like to think that our guests feel the same. We often get questions about our Yurt, and the history of Yurts in general, so we thought it was about time we finally get the facts sorted and show you why it is truly a café with character.
