We are so pleased that you like our venue for children, our junior fishing will be open every day until October half term. But Slap 'n Dash Ceramic Studio continues year round as does the cafe. We hope to welcome you again soon.

The food is excellent, prepared by a franchise chef who really cares, menu is small but delicious and wine is reasonably priced. Well done Hawkhurst fish farm you put most other restaurants in the area to shame !
