Our Service

Our wellbeing service supports individuals in a way that works best for them. We offer training in horticulture and retailing, or provide the experience of teamwork in a supportive environment. This helps build confidence, structure daily life, and manage mental health.

Support planning sessions allow individuals to set personal recovery goals and identify the support needed to achieve them. Our dedicated team of staff and volunteers is here to support their journey towards recovery.

At The Old Moat, we currently support over 50 people on their recovery journeys.

We rely on generous donations, fundraising, grants, and legacies to supplement our finances, allowing us to maintain and expand our services and develop new wellbeing opportunities.


Whether meeting friends for coffee or treating yourself to lunch out, you’re sure to find something to tempt your taste buds in our café.

Serving hot and cold drinks, or our fresh smoothies, you’ll find mouth-watering cakes and pastries, perfect for an afternoon treat.

Our lunch menu includes paninis, and hearty soup as well as seasonal recipes and specials, or why not pop along for a jacket potato or freshly made salad?

Our café is dog friendly, and also caters to a variety of dietary needs; with gluten and dairy-free options available.

Many of the ingredients we use in our cafe are produced in our walled garden, grown by people using our service.

Our Homemade chocolate beetroot cake is a popular example of food made with our own produce and is made with fresh beetroot from our vegetable garden. Come and see what homemade cakes and food we have available today.
