A HIDEOUT has been created at the Gateway Café at Lake 6, Cotswold Water Park.

The new HIDEOUT aims to be an emporium of food, drinks, and treats, with a pick ‘n’ mix menu concept of the eateries on site as well as Bar@Lake6 shaking up cocktails.

Commercial manager Rachel Davies said: “We are delighted to create our new HIDEOUT that offers a great opportunity to socialise in the winter evenings: to enjoy a ‘Hygge’ style of dining under white lights, with warmth, sharing plates, a pick ‘n’ mix menu choice - a spacious, yet cosy meeting place for friends and family, and dogs are more than welcome!”

On Friday the venue will welcome Elsa to meet and entertain younger visitors between 3-5pm and 6-8pm.

Explaining the new menu Rob Goves, Relish owner and chef, said: “We are proud of the newly opened HIDEOUT – a real winter wonderland of tasty food and drinks.

"To be able to offer a spectacular space for our visitors to relax with friends and family and enjoy a range of street-style dishes, cocktails and juices, gives us great pride.

"Anyone, at any table, can choose from each of the menus on offer. It is a true food and drink pick ‘n’ mix concept – a wonderful emporium under one stretch tent roof!”

Pizzeria 720° offers wood-fired pizzas, the BAR@Lake6 is launching its new cocktail menu and the neighbouring Christmas stalls will be offering marshmallows for toasting, locally made fudge, doughnuts, candy floss, and chilli or caramelized nuts.

The Gateway Café, a permanent fixture at Lake 6, is open daily from 9am to 5pm (winter opening times). The HIDEOUT will open from 9am – 9pm (last food orders at 8.45 pm).
