Barristers Block

For tantalising woodfired pizzas, good wine, and a family friendly atmosphere, Barristers Block is the place to go. Family owned and operated, Barristers Block is only a 2 minute drive, or, if you feel like taking a stroll, only a 10 minute walk away. Wile away the day, lazing under the trees, and enjoying the picturesque scenery. Leaving the kids to be occupied by the animal sanctuary, housing some cute deer, friendly geese, and a number of other cute and cuddlies.

Bird in Hand

Enjoy a nice, relaxing afternoon, taking in the scenery with some fine wine and good music at Bird in Hand. Or if music isn’t quite your pace, head into The Gallery and enjoy their collection of fine art, for an “inspired dining experience”. Enter the cellar door and delight in their carefully selected museum pieces, roam the original barrel hall, or unwind in the courtyard overlooking the vines. No matter your choice, a short 5 minute drive to Bird in Hand will be sure to bring out your creative side!

Art Wine

With a passion and drive to produce new-emerging (alternative) varieties of wine, Art Wine is sure to have something to suit every palate. Overlook the charming vineyard, while tasting their vast selection of award winning wines. Have a picnic with the kids in the garden, or for the cooler days, relax in the heated sunroom. Situated only a 6 minute drive away, a visit to Art Wine would be a perfect way to spend a lazy afternoon.
