Making a purchase
- At the counter we've installed a perspex screen at one end where payments will take place. This is to protect you and our staff when using the card machine.
- Card payments are preferred but we will also accept cash. Please make contactless payments for any purchases up to £45. Staff will ensure that the card machine is sanitised when the keypad is used.
One thing that is still the same is the warm welcome you'll receive at The Green Man Gallery.
We hope you enjoy your visit and find something to inspire you and maybe to adorn your walls!
