Now Even More Scrumptious ~ Foodie Experiences at Gates

The Winter Kitchen

On weekends through November and December we’ve added some tasty additions to the Gates dining experience! In Glasshouse 1 enjoy a warming Soup with a roll, the sausagy treat of a Hot Dog with delicious onions and a steaming cup of tea or even a seasonal Mulled Wine. We’ve cosied the place up with our beautiful decorations and toasty heaters and look forward to seeing you soon!

What is a Churro?

A churro is a cinnamon and sugar-topped fried pastry dough stick with Spanish and Portuguese origins. Churros are similar to doughnuts, but they have ridges because they are piped out of a pastry bag. Freshly fried churros have a fluffy and tender interior with a satisfyingly crispy exterior. If this isn’t delicious enough, now choose from either chocolate, butterscotch or cream for dipping!

Visit the Churros Truck which is buried in a forest of real Christmas Trees on the walkway to the new Barn
