The Hungry Dragon


We have opened a brand new snack bar in The Dragon’s Lair play area.

Following the successful launch of the play area, in the Arboretum of the Gardens, in Autumn 2016, the area has become hugely popular with tourists and locals alike.

Having listened to feedback from visitors, a toilet facility was opened next to The Dragon’s Lair in October 2017 and the latest development is in response to requests from visitors for a refreshment provision in the same area.

The facility is called The Hungry Dragon and will be selling refreshments and light snacks, such as hot and cold drinks, chocolate/snack bars, ice creams and a selection of savoury items such as sausage rolls, pasties and quiche.

The snack bar is open on the following dates in 2019 (11:30am - 3pm, weather and staff permitting).

**From 9th April - during Crafty Cats and Nature Ninjas event days
Saturdays from and including Saturday 13th April.
Easter Weekend (19th, 20th, 21st, 22nd April) 
Bank Holidays Mondays
Sundays during school holidays (from 13th April):**

Last day of opening: Saturday 31st August 

Parents will be able to enjoy a hot coffee whilst the children are entertaining themselves on the play equipment, and little ones will be able to re-fuel with a delicious snack in between enjoying the delights of The Dragon’s Lair.
