The Magic Garden is located in a residential area. We want to maintain our good relations with the local community and make every effort to keep the vibe nice and relaxed for all our customers too. We therefore would like to ask that there be no loud celebrations in the
garden please. We can’t really have loud chanting, singing, decorations or even birthday cakes in the garden. Sounds silly I know, but we’re just trying to keep everyone happy.
All the areas in our venue include seating and some standing so don’t worry, there’s plenty of space for you and your guests.
If it gets chilly later on outside, we have a large trunk full of blankets and we also give out hot water bottles for free. These are a very popular feature, especially in the winter!
If you have any queries about your reservation, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
