New for Summer 2017!


Holly Tree @ Woodhall is open!


With an indoor area focused on younger children, an outdoor area suitable for all, a larger menu, a gaming area and a fully licensed bar, Holly Tree Woodhall aims to find something for the whole family to enjoy.


As two (very different) and very busy parents of our two (very different) children, we constantly strive to find a compromise between activities that satisfy each one of us, often travelling to far flung places to try to meet those demands, and with varied levels of success! When we took on the Railway Inn, we wanted to try to combine the different requirements into one, family friendly venue. What we created was Holly Tree at The Railway. A fun, engaging and safe environment for baby and toddlers, a park for the inbetweeners, and let's face it, try as we might to dissuade them come homework time, what could older children want more than computer games? For Mum and Dad, we have a choice of two menus, our Holly Tree coffees, magazines and books and a range of wines, cask ales and craft beers.

The pub is open 12:00 - 23:00 Monday - Saturday and 12:00 - 21:00 Sundays. 




We are pleased to announce the opening of our brand new outdoor children's play area! The area comes complete with a sandpit and toys, a mud kitchen, a water play bench and a sensory wall for babies and toddlers. Our special relationship with Hatchlings of Lincoln means that our equipment is bespoke, safe, made to last and because he's a star, very honest and reasonably priced! This has meant in turn that not only are we the only children's soft play area in Lincoln with an outdoor and sensory garden, but we have been able to remain the cheapest soft play centre in the Lincoln area too!
There are now 3 areas at Holly Tree Soft Play, 2 indoor and 1 outdoor, as well our our café and restaurant.  We are constantly aspiring to improve and bring new ideas to our world of children's activities. Our aim is to provide the widest range of things to do for children and babies, whilst maintaining an adult friendly environment too. We hope that you and your children find our outdoor area as engaging as we do, and we look forward to sharing our next little project with you soon! 
Check out this little guy! Whilst we don't recommend sitting in the bowl of water, we have to admit, it does look pretty fun! Click on the picture for more photos.

I always find it really difficult to find somewhere to entertain a preschooler and a baby but at Holly Tree there is something for both of them. My baby has plenty to do and loves the Jumperoo whilst my eldest spends most of her time on the "amazing bumpy slide" (Myia, Age 3). There's also a lovely selection of cakes and coffee for mums!
