Please note, our Petting Zoo takes place in the Museum of Curiosities downstairs from our Cocktail Bar. Standard museum admission is £5/person and tickets can be purchased on the day.  All guests will be invited down the the museum in half hour time slots. Due to the museum's small maximum capacity, guests will be allowed 30 minutes to visit the museum and/or partake in the menagerie during our petting zoo weekends. 

Times for the Petting Zoo are Friday 5:30-10:30, Saturday & Sunday 2:30-10:30, unless otherwise specified.

If you would like to join us for cocktails before your visit to the museum for the petting zoo, we suggest booking a table as the bar gets very busy on the weekends. Please plan to visit the petting zoo after your time with us in the cocktail bar as tables cannot be held whilst guests are downstairs in the museum.  

Tickets cannot be purchased in advance for the Petting Zoo but if you would like to make a reservation in our cocktail bar, please confirm the time, date and number of guests vis email and we're happy to help!
