The sweets cabinet is full again so why not pop down for a coffee, breakfast, brunch or lunch, we'd love to see you.

Recently, we have been on a knife's edge with staff shortages but unfortunately a couple of covid isolations have tipped us over the edge.
We have been forced to close tomorrow Thursday 12th, Friday 13th and Saturday 14th May.
We will be open again at 8am on Sunday and look forward to seeing you all then.
Please understand that like many other businesses this is not a decision made lightly or something we want, it is just what we have to do to navigate these difficult times.

Staff shortages are a huge problem for many industries and lots of businesses here in Bright. We are all managing the best we can with often the bare minimum of staff working incredibly hard to look after our guests. Sadly we have no back up and when illness or life circumstances occur we have decided to close rather than compromise our high standard of service.

The good news is we will be stacked up with lots of delicious goodies when we reopen on Sunday.
Thank you,
Robyn, Greg and the fabulous Riverdeck Crew
