Eating with little ones

Eating with your little ones has never been easier. We have a children's lunchbox offer which include any five items marked with a bumble bee in the fridges. Hot food is served from 11.30am to 2.30pm, meaning you can top up after a mornings adventure, and a selection of our dishes can be served as a half portion - perfect for the younger members of the family! We also offer takeaway cups for any of our hot drinks, so grab a cuppa and head out for a day of exploration!
