A terrace area to the rear of the Hall offers space for external seating during warm weather.

There is a Community Shop in the Hall car park offering a broad range of produce including sandwiches, sausage rolls and pies, crisps and sweets, soft drinks, wine and beer and newspapers and a range of local produce.
