Hot Chocolate

Our hot chocolate is famous for being rich and creamy with a special chocolate mix made in house and of course served with marshmallows to top it off … share these with the kids.


After six months of searching Temple teas became our in house brand, with the flavours of english breakfast, earl grey, peppermint, Sencha. We are proud to be able to serve these quality teas.


Cold Beverages

We have a selection of cold bottled beverages in the fridge. On hot summer days you can’t go past an old fashion milkshake made with or without ice cream,  smoothie or a glass of iced tea.  We have been told our iced drinks are “the best” we have three flavours to choose from coffee, chocolate or mocha, cream is optional.

For the younger children we have an affordable option of  freshly made flavoured milk .
