With the addition of more picnic tables and umbrellas, we invite you to relax with your perfect cider or cocktail alongside a Merridale pizza in the courtyard. Pizza orders will be pub style, please come inside to the counter to order your food and they will be brought out to you. There will be no reservations for outdoor seating as this is weather dependant. Remember, we welcome 4 legged furry friends in this outdoor space. Kids are welcome too, of course. Please note, the brunch and dinner menu is not being served at the picnic tables.

Take in the nature around you with a stroll or vigorous walk in our orchard - The trees are budding, the bees are active, and the number of birds visiting is amazing.  Besides, Fido will love the walk, and you get to work up an appetite before or work off the indulgence after – either way, a win!
