A family pub in Balby is gearing up to attract customers for its Christmas and New Year rush with a series of plans to add more attractions to its premises.

Woodfield Farm already boasts a dessert menu and carvery and a range of tasty tipples and there is also a fantastic children’s play area, promise of a new salad bar and upgrade of fixtures and fittings, to attract even more customers when new homes are built in the area.

Assistant manager, Alex Gaunt, said the Green King franchise hostelry in Woodfield Way had a dessert trolley and an OAP menu for diners. OAP meals include carvery, fish of the day and bangers and mash.

Alex added: “We have been open about seven years and have built quite a good reputation.

“There are due to be new homes built in this area at the turn of the year and we hope to be able to provide a great dining experience for new customers.

“The children’s play area, which acts as a creche two days each week, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, includes interactive games such as air hockey, a pinball machine, interactive touch screen televisions, two X-boxes, two play stations and ride on buses.”

The pub holds fundraisers throughout the year and has recently raised cash for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The sweet trolley, which has always been a big attraction, includes many in-house created sweet treats such as giant cheesecakes, eight different cakes and giant eclairs.

There is a quiz night every Thursday at 9pm. This is a fun quiz with lots of great games, including a series of rounds such as general knowledge, music and spin the wheel of fortune. At the end there are a number of prizes for the winners giving them a fist full of goodies.
