Helping you to make your special time last even longer…that’s the Puddle Ducks’ difference

The café at Blaise Castle Estate is a great place for a coffee or lunch, especially when the sun is shining as there’s a children’s play area just outside.  There’s lots more to do here including climbing the hill to the castle, visiting the lily pond, or feel free to take a picnic or fire up a BBQ.

Cribbs Causeway is only a 5-10 minute drive where there is a variety of eateries.
