GENERAL INFORMATION
All facilities at Springstock are laid on outside in the garden so the pub itself is closed.

FOOD AND DRINK
We have racks of cask ales from Tring Brewery in our large beer tent plus Hook Norton Ironstone lager on draught and Dorset Orchards Apple Bee cider on draught plus a range of real ciders, bottled beers, wine, soft drinks and water.
Hot food is served from lunchtime through to early evening including a barbecue. We always have choices of meat, gluten-free and vegan meals, of course. Food is reasonably priced.
Please do not bring your own food or drink unless you have particular dietary needs which we are unable to cater for. If you are unsure, please call us on (0118) 9699878 to discuss.

GETTING HERE
Car parking is extremely limited as most of the grounds are taken up with the festival facilities. We encourage everyone to arrange other ways of getting here. Get a lift, a taxi, car-share, walk or come by bike! If you need directions, check out our Where We Are page.

ACCESSIBILITY, CHILDREN, DOGS AND OTHER INFORMATION
The entire Festival site is on car park level with access to the site through open double gates onto the lawn. We have temporary outdoor toilets in the garden and there is also an outdoor accessible loo with hand washing facilities on car park level at the front of the pub.
Well behaved children are very welcome but they must be supervised at all times. If you wish to bring children, please call us on (0118) 9699878 to discuss tickets for them. It is a long day and younger children may get restless. Well behaved dogs are also welcome but they must be kept on a lead. The site gets very busy and crowded.
Some areas of the open garden are in the shade and we will have a large marquee erected for those wishing to sit out of the sun.
The live music strikes up at 2pm sharp and the festival winds down around 11:30pm at the end of the headline act's performance. We ask everyone to leave the premises promptly, quietly and safely.
Finally, don't forget to dress up hippy style to really get into the spirit of Springstock!
It's going to be fabulous!

If you have questions, please give us a call on (0118) 9699878.
