Make it a December to remember and support small businesses 🎁...

Kick off the festive season and join us on the 2nd December for our Christmas Fair. Explore handmade gifts from local businesses, food stalls, decorations, and more all whilst enjoying live music and carols throughout the day. You can even buy your Christmas tree from a local Christmas tree seller! 🎄

Our café will be open all day selling festive favourites such as mulled wine and mince pies, as well as our usual menu with gluten free and vegan option available.
