Al Fresco Dining – it’s all the rage!


There is less than a week to go before we see the re-opening of some of our best loved cafes, bars and restaurants , albeit for outside drinking and eating only. Hence, with al fresco being the buzz word, we thought we would highlight some of the wonderful venues in and around Newmarket that have gone above and beyond to create inviting outdoor spaces and menus for us to enjoy. So gather friends and family, (up to six)  and celebrate the art of socialising once again, whilst supporting local businesses.

Spring Garden at The Packhorse Inn, Moulton

Al fresco in Newmarket
The Spring Garden theme is also available at the sister pub and restaurant, in nearby Moulton. The sheepskin rugs that  proved so popular over the winter months, are back if needed, but hopefully they won’t be required and the sun will shine as you enjoy a coffee, a wine, a snack or a meal as all are available to relish in these  wonderful surroundings.
