A warm welcome awaits you

At The Ferns Bistro at The Malt House Emporium

Expect innovation and tradition combined

This was initially a place for customers to sample the coffee and tea that we sell and enjoy an accompanying snack, however, we quickly discovered that an ancillary service, to provide something in-house to our customers who are looking for an area to enjoy some refreshment, take a break or to consider their purchases was needed. Having this service in our Antiques & Interiors store, which infuses the old and new makes perfect sense.
