Newbold Comyn Facilities
Cafes: There is a cafe in the Newbold Comyn Leisure Centre. This serves hot and cold drinks and snacks. Very close to the leisure centre in the Newbold Comyn Arms, a pub serving food and drink (of course). Unfortunately you will have to wait until 11am for the pub to open on a Saturday morning.
NB. hot and cold drinks are normally served in the building that houses the changing rooms adjacent to the start/finish area. This facility is staffed by parkrun volunteers and a small donation is requested to cover the costs.

There is also: a childrens' playground, a scateboard park, a nine hole pitch and putt golf course, an 18 hole pay and play full golf course and many football, cricket and rugby pitches.
