We hope you enjoyed our Family Open Day

​We’re just debriefing after a fantastic Family Open Day on Saturday, thanks to all of you that joined us.

This was our busiest event yet, and it was great to see so many of your enjoying some beers and celebrating the Summer with family. And blimey, weren’t we lucky with the weather?!


Our stall holders had some delicious wares, jams and chutneys from CondiMental were a great take away to compliment Wharfedale Fine Cheese. We had Pretzels, Crepes and Yorkshire Dales Ice Cream to keep the kids fuelled for the bouncy castle. We’re only a little bit upset that we didn’t get to have a bounce! Ferret Bingo was enjoyed by guests of all ages, until the ferrets decided to take an afternoon nap in the sunshine. But there will still plenty of wild faces as our friend Olivia provided some fantastic face painting.


A special shout out goes to Ifty and the team from Ruby’s Street Kitchen, who slaved over hot stoves, slinging out masala chicken and halloumi wraps at a rate of knots. And of course, no event is complete without music, which was provided by the masters of eclectic mixing, Sound Social.


We’re looking forward to our next social, which will take place on Friday 14th of December. This should be the perfect opportunity for a little mid-silly-season de-stress. We will be selling gifts for any last minute shoppers, and there will be some festive entertainment too. We might even manage to convince Men That Sing to come back for some carols. We’d love to welcome groups, so if you’re in charge of the mammoth task of planning your works Christmas celebration, make it easy for yourself and bring them down here. It promises to be an evening of beery festivities, perfect for getting you in the Christmas spirit.
