Bear & Eden will reopen for indoor and outdoor table service on Tuesday 18th May 2021 and our children’s indoor play area will also be reopening.

It’s been a long and tough year for us, however, we are so pleased to say we will be able to welcome all our lovely customers back to Bear and Eden on Tuesday 18th May 2021.

As per the government guidelines, our reopening schedule will look like this:

1. Sunday 16th and Monday 17th May 2021 we will be closed for some maintenance and deep cleaning ready for our grand reopening.

2. Tuesday 18th May: Indoor socialising will become possible again – subject to the rule of six or two households. This means that you will be able to mix in indoor settings with people from your household and one more, or, alternatively, be with up to five people from different households. Our children’s indoor play area will re-open. We will provide sanitising wipes and we ask for parents to clean the toys once their children have finished playing. Our staff will also sanitise the children’s play area at the end of every day.

3. 21st June: All restrictions will hopefully be lifted and we can also host private events such as birthday parties, christenings, wedding receptions, bespoke events and themed ticketed events.

We can’t wait to welcome all of our loyal and new customers back to Bear and Eden. Over the last six months, we have gained lots of new customers who have loved enjoying their daily walks around Stansted Mountfitchet and buying a coffee & hot sausage roll from us along the way. We are excited to have you back into our beautiful barn at last. It has been so long since you have been able to sit inside and enjoy our amazing coffee, homemade cakes and breakfast and lunch menu in more comfort and more importantly in the warm with our friendly welcoming staff.

Thank you so much to you all of you for supporting us with our takeaway service over the last six months.  Without your support Bear and Eden would not have survived this very difficult time. It really does mean the world to us.

Thank you to our key suppliers over the lockdown that really have kept the people of Stansted Mountfitchet happy with their delicious homemade cakes; Jamie_queen_of_tarts for our amazing brownies, blondies & New York cookies; Blakesbakes_ for our delicious cakes and lilybakes_official for her eye-catching and tasty kids themed cupcakes and biscuits.

We would like to say a special thanks to our three members of staff who have helped run our takeaway service with myself and Danielle over the last six months. Lisa, Charlotte and Daisy have all worked so hard to keep it all going with us. We have all worked in the freezing cold winter temperatures with the front door open serving our customers, always with a smile. Our perseverance and dedication has helped keep the doors of Bear and Eden open.

We look forward to seeing you all on or after the 18th May 2021.

Gemma & Danielle
