Trick or treat?

The autumn leaves are falling from the trees, the days are getting shorter and there is a chill in the air, which can only mean one thing. Halloween is just around the corner. 

With just over two weeks to go, we wanted to point you in the direction of all the spooky shops and creepy cafes taking part in this frightful festival.

Lyla Belle’s Cafe have launched their Autumn menu, complete with their Wizards Butter’scotch’ Beer to help you get into the spirit of the season! You can also party the night away at their Kid’s Halloween Disco on Saturday 30th October. A great price for a disco, games, tea box and more.

Save some Halloween fun for the adults!

The Hidden Tap have added Halloween cocktails to their specials board. We’ll take a Poisoned Apple please. 2 for £10 or £6.95 so it would be rude not to give 1 or 2 a try!
