The new soft play area at the pub in the New Hall Hey area of Rawtenstall, close to the East Lancashire Railway’s northern terminus, is available to children under 12 years of age and below 1.45m in height.

Under the expansion, the Old Cobblers, part of the Greene King group, also has a new and improved beer garden area, perfect for enjoying al fresco dining or a refreshing drink outdoors.

The 15 new members of staff recently taken on are working front of house and in the kitchen, as well as the Wacky Warehouse facility itself.

Debra Zajac, general manager of the Old Cobblers Inn, said: “It’s brilliant that we’ve been able to open a Wacky Warehouse and we just know our new and existing guests will love it.

“Creating a home from home feel for families is hugely important to us and we have no doubt that the addition of the soft play will allow us to amplify this further, with young kids able to eat and play all under one roof.

“Whether you’re looking for a family meal, a quick coffee while your young ones play or just looking to fill the time between school and teatime – our new Wacky Warehouse provides the perfect solution.”

Wacky Warehouse’s Summer Play Pass offers parents great value for money on play sessions throughout the summer holidays and further details about the Old Cobblers Inn are here.
