Frequently asked questions

This includes exclusive use of the adjoining patio, which overlooks our lovely garden and play area, and is available from 11- 5:00pm and 6:00- 11:00pm. We can usually seat 28 guests comfortably for a meal inside and up to 100 guests for a party.
We do have another lovely area that might work for your event. We have a large heated umbrella in our back garden, with seating for 24, along with 2 adjoining Garden Pods.

This area can be reserved for you with no hire fee, however we ask for a £100.00 deposit to secure the area which can be used towards your bill on the day.
