For three weeks beginning Monday 29th January we are block-paving the nursery shop entrance and exit and creating a paved pathway from the main carpark to the plant sales area and Cafe, then back up to the nursery shop. It’s a major undertaking and some disruption to the usual pathways around the site is unavoidable as the work progresses.
We ask that all customers please take note of site signage indicating temporary pathways and barriers that we’ve put in place, and apologies in advance for any inconvenience, things will return better than ever very soon, we promise!
Previously all dog’s have been very welcome inside the cafe and that policy had proved to be popular with our many dog-owning visitors, but after listening to a great deal of feedback from all of our customers since we opened two years ago, we are aware that not everybody is comfortable sharing their personal space with animals, so we have decided to strike a balance by setting out some house rules out of respect to them.
- Dogs are only permitted in the front half of the cafe – that’s tables 1 – 11
- We only permit quiet, well-behaved & clean dogs within the cafe
- Dog owners are please to refrain from allowing their dogs on their laps or seats and not to feed dogs from the table
- Due to limited floor space, large dogs will no longer be permitted inside the cafe
We’d like to congratulate the Draycott team for all their hard work in receiving top honours.
It was great to be in attendance to see you receive your certificate, and we look forward to supporting you again next year!!
We’re proud to announce our PipTree Cafe can now be found on TripAdvisor under Borrowash or Derby Restaurants.

We are featured in the the British Plant Nursery Guide, a website that promotes independent British nurseries.
Thanks to the fantastic reputation of our nursery team, ITV’s Lucy Kite approached us this summer to shoot a ‘Monthly Garden Tips’ piece as part of their Central Evening News broadcast. It’s been such a success we’ve done several more since.
We were recently featured in Derbyshire Life Magazine, November 2015 edition. The double-page editorial shows off our new PipTree Cafe, with some lovely pic’s of the interior and a great write up of our new venture.
