Menu and Attendance

Confirmed numbers and food options for all party types must be sent to Barney’s Playbarn at least a week before the party date. We will need to be notified of any additional guests as part of the confirmation. You will still be charged for party guests who do not attend. If food options are not confirmed for Teddy Bears Picnic or Beary Bash a week before the party date, options will be chosen for you.
Only food bought from Barney’s Playbarn may be consumed on the premises. Celebration cakes are exempt from this. To help accommodate dietary requirements, please inform us of any allergies when booking the party.

Party Room and Decorations

The party room is not available for evening or early bird private hires and use of the party room will not be guaranteed for other parties. However parties will be held in the party room whenever possible. Decorations are welcome but are to be put up on window and glass only and with blue tac. Balloons are to be kept in the party room only for health and safety precautions.
The Playbarn’s House Rules also apply in the party room.

Early Bird and Evening Hires

Party hosts and guests will not be able to enter the premises before the Early Bird party. Party hosts may discuss early entry for decorating etc with Management prior to the party date.
When booking a private hire event, disco, bouncy castle and Barney requests must be specified when booking the party. All of these are subject to availability and will need to be confirmed with management. If our in-house DJ is unavailable for evening hires, disco music and lights may be offered as an alternative.
Our bouncy castle and disco are available for evening hires only at no additional cost. We are unable to provide both of these for the same party for health and safety reasons. Barney/Becky Bear appearances are available for all party types, subject to availability, for an additional cost of £5.00. The bouncy castle is to be supervised by a parent at all times, a maximum of 5 children on it at any one time.
