We’re really excited to let you know that we’ll be ready to welcome you to Ballihoo, starting with al fresco dining, from 12th April.

We have many dining options available over the spring and summer, so here’s our guide to what’s happening on the estate.

We are all set for the great British weather, with seating under cover and heaters at the ready (should the temperature be less spring-like than hoped for!). We’ve also installed gabion seating around our firepit for fun, informal dining.

When? Monday 12th April – Sunday 16th May

Can I come with friends? You can book with either up to six people from multiple households OR two households for our alfresco dining options.

What time?
Breakfast menu 0800-1100
A la carte, wood baked pizza, & kids’ menu for lunch & dinner 1200-2200
