To celebrate the New Year we are offering a festive set menu, arrival between 7.30pm and 7.45pm for a glass of Prosecco and canapes, and we will aim to serve the first course at 8.15pm.  The Cider Barn Team will be joining our guests for a glass of Prosecco at midnight.

For each of theses days we will require a deposit of £10 per adults on the booking to be paid when you are making your booking.

For Christmas Day we ask our guests to pre-order and get back to us by the 1st December with the order and final payment.
