The Robin Hood

Surrounded by gorgeous fields giving you the "country feel" and an open log fire with sofas to sit on with a glass of wine in hand! They have the best dessert menu as well.

Trent Country Park

Beautiful fields and meadows and a delightful café in amongst the trees.

Swinging through the trees at Go Ape in Trent Park is a great day out!

Previously the Cock and Dragon, this pub is the place to be on a Thursday night!

Enfield Garden Centre lies in Crews Hill, North London, in an area renowned for its rich horticultural heritage. Whilst plants and gardening remain at the heart of the business, Enfield also offers customers a wonderful day out, with a newly opened garden restaurant, a great gift shop, a fish shop and a furniture shop, as well as a soft play area for the kids, which is open any time the restaurant is open. There may be the odd occasion where a play area has been booked for a child's party, so it's always best to check with the centre first to avoid disappointment. Website
