For entertainment we offer Mole Hill Mini Golf, a nine hole putt-putt course that will tease the golfing skills of both children and parents.

The Mole and Pig licensed Inn offers good food and drinks of choice that can be taken indoors or al fresco in Millgate’s lovely rose garden.

Thanks to The Mole and Pig’s a large screen satellite TV, there is no need to miss important sports matches while away from home. Between matches, darts challenges can be arranged.

For shoppers we offer The Glass Studio with its vast array of glass objects both sandblasted and kiln-formed. We have wrought iron items, wooden toys and bric-a-brac. Mole Hill’s quality shirts are made on the premises, and we can make some just for you.
