Clevedon Restaurant grounds and location
Family Father’s Day picnic announced


The Clevedon Restaurant in Ben Rhydding is introducing a Father’s Day event with a difference this year - the venue will be hosting a ‘picnic on the lawn’ of its extensive grounds on the outskirts of Ilkley.


Boasting one of the best views in the Wharfe Valley, the picnic on the lawn promises a Father’s Day celebration with a difference as families book a space which includes a choice of picnic hamper and mini family games.


Responding to customers wanting more family-friendly initiatives at the exclusive venue, General Manager Jeanette HillWickham has introduced the Father’s Day event to make full use of the extensive facilities at the top of Ben Rhydding Drive.


She said: “Our Clevedon Restaurant and lawns are one of the hidden gems of the Wharfe Valley and we want more families to come along and enjoy the wonderful space and views which offer an exclusive take on the family picnic.


“We know from speaking with customers that many young families want to do something a little different to an ordinary meal out on Father’s Day so we are transferring the delights created by our fantastic chef into a picnic hamper and out onto the lawn for families to enjoy in the fresh air – and hopefully, the sunshine. If the weather isn’t kind, we’ll have covered spaces for shelter so it really is a win-win for all.”


The Clevedon Restaurant seats around 50 people indoors with expansive manicured lawns outside which will comfortably host up to 10 families with plenty of space for outdoor fun and games.  Also featuring at the venue on Father’s Day is a ‘make your own’ pizza menu with pizza oven on the balcony and options for the traditional Sunday lunch indoors.


Jeanette added: “Father’s Day 2019 marks the start of a season of outside and indoor events for all the family here at the Clevedon Restaurant. We know that keeping the children active and entertained while treating dads to something special isn’t always easy so we hope to have hit the spot this year for mum’s and partners wanting  to find the best of all worlds for hard working dads and harder to please, active kids!”


Picnic hampers start at £30 including mini games. For more information about Father’s Day or how to book go to or call 01943 811606.
