There’s more than just the finger-licking food on offer with resident DJs, Four Corners, setting the soundtrack, open air cocktail bar, acres of landscaped grounds to explore, The Fairy Trail and play area for kids. This month we have our Playtime special which features a dino dig with Make Mess Matter, Think Circus will be performing throughout the day as well as teaching circus skills, Fantoosh face painting and windmill making with Art Point.

The perfect day trip for foodies, families or those looking for a country escape.

Top tips:
Lunchtime is our busiest time, why not consider coming a little later and avoid the queues. Some traders take cash-only payments and although there is an ATM onsite we recommend bringing cash with you.
Parking: There is ample free onsite parking
Dogs: Well behaved dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead at all times, be comfortable in busy environments and owners are responsible for their behaviour.
