Bubwith, East Yorkshire
Bubwith Leisure & Sports Centre
For a small village, Bubwith is extremely lucky to have a facility such as the Bubwith Leisure & Sports Centre. It is a hub for many local groups and associations, with various activities – from karate to Zumba, ballroom dancing to youth clubs – finding a home within the centre’s main hall, which can also be hired for parties and events.
Outside there is a large playing field, which has recently seen plans for a floodlit running track to be added around its permitter. There is also a small playing area for children.
Bubwith Tennis Club
Set within the grounds of the leisure centre, but run entirely separately, is Bubwith Tennis Club. With three artificial grass-style courts, including one which has recently upgraded floodlights, the club is used all year round with a range of social play, coaching sessions, and league matches amongst the busy calendars.
Whilst primarily a members’ club, non-members are welcome to use the West Court for a small fee, payable at the local McColl’s shop. For those with younger kids looking to take up the sport, membership for children on primary school age is free.
The Jug & Bottle
This superb deli describes itself as your “dream treat shop” and few would argue. You’ll find a great range of items to tempt you whether it’s the cakes and sandwiches, or if your head is turned by the wonderful selection of gins and beers.
Chocoholics are well catered for too and it is the ideal place to drop in if you are looking for a special gift – especially around Christmas time. And if deciding what to have is a little too much, then ask the team about their luxury hampers which can be created to match a theme of your choosing.
The White Swan
Of course, no village would be complete without the village pub, and the White Swan is a cracker! Whether you are a foodie or real ale fan, you will receive a warm welcome and will be well catered for.
The bar stocks beers from such local breweries as Old Mill and Copper Dragon, as well as the usual array of gins, ciders and wines. The home-cooked food never disappoints with an extensive, reasonably priced menu supplemented by an ever-changing specials board.
So whether you are celebrating something special or just that it is the weekend, drop by the White Swan.
Bubwith can also boast its own Bangladeshi and Indian restaurant too, with Cinnamon offer both dining-in and takeaway options.
If you should decide to dine in, take your drink of choice with you as the restaurant does not serve alcohol but are happy to bring your own.
However, should you opt for an evening at home, there is an online order facility as well as a local delivery service to bring tasty food direct to your door.
