Better late than never - Dip'n'Dine is back!

Dip 'n' dine returns to The Merton for 2020

27 August 2020

After an uncertain few months where we saw our operations within both the Merton Hotel and our Aquadome have to adapt to the 'new normal', we can finally begin reintroducing some of our favourite activities to our guests and visitors. That includes our hugely popular Dip'n'Dine events! 

From Sunday 6th September you will be able to enjoy a family swim and buffet meal that takes place every Sunday lunchtime for the remainder of the season. You and the kids get an hour to enjoy our Aquadome facilities including the indoor and outdoor pools, flumes, cascade fountains and spa pools.

Once you've all worked up a good appetite, you'll head to The Belvedere for a delicious buffet-style Sunday lunch.

And the fun doesn't end after lunch - in the Star Room, there’s fun entertainment for the kids and whole family to enjoy. Due to current restrictions we have had to adapt out entertainment offering and we will not be opening the soft play, bouncy castle and face painting, but we will have some great activities and a kids party. We hope that we will be able to get back to the standard offering soon.

Book your tickets online

To make it even simpler we have now introduced a brand new booking system so you can book your Dip'n'Dine tickets online! Just go to our Dip'n'Dine page here and select your preferred date and how many people you'd like to book for.

The Aquadome is usually available exclusively to hotel guests and club members, so Dip 'n' Dine presents the perfect opportunity for all locals to come and enjoy our great range of facilities.
