Large Beer Garden, Outdoor Bar and Pizza Shack

Something very exciting has pride of place in our garden.

Rascal's Ranch 

Rascal's Ranch is our dedicated children's play area at the bottom of our large garden. Following a community competition, the play area was named by local boy Zac (Aged 5) and we couldn't have come up with a better name if we tried. It perfectly suits the area where your little rascal's can play in the outdoor play area that consists of a slide and climbing frame, or in our indoor shack with soft play toys and lots of games to keep your little ones entertained. Rascal's Ranch is available for hire for parties, please contact us for futher information.
