LET US HELP YOU CELEBRATE Reliable and Trustworthy, you get professionalism all day long but we don't forget to bring the fun! Nothing pleases us more than seeing the enjoyment our set up can bring to the mix ! We accept we are a little bit quirky and we definitely will bring that WOW you are looking for on your special day. We're based in Nottinghamshire but are more than happy to travel the Country to events-we love seeing new places and like to mix it up a bit with different scenery :-) 'Dinky', our vintage caravan bar is named that for a reason.. At only 10 feet long she's Dinky but as we know great things come in small packages.. She's available on her own or with a Dinky Den or two-3m and 5m Bell Tents which can be used as Party Space or for Sleepovers. We think we look great on our own perhaps in a garden or grounds of a Hotel. We also really help set off a Bohho Festival vibe to an outdoor wedding- imagine us beside your teepee you are planning. We want to make the day as special as it can be so yes we have packages but by no means are they set in stone - let's work together to achieve your vision. Dont worry about the legalities, we have the licences and will make sure all is above board. If you like what you see, what are you waiting for... Get in touch and let's start planning this extravaganza :-)
Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I hire just the bar?
Of course you can, 'Dinky' may be small but she still makes that talking point you are looking for. You can hire the bar on her own, with laid back seating options, with pop up bars to accompany and with a Dinky Den or two... Its completely down to you & what fits with your plans :-)
Can I hire the bar empty?
Yes, no problem.. This is what we call Dry Hire so we let you borrow Dinky with no drinks in so she's free for you to fill. With this option you still get the fridge, the ice bucket, bottle openers, condiment knives, chopping boards etc... Its just a case of adding your own drinks, glasses, ice and garnishes.
What drinks do you sell?
To be honest we can work with what you are looking for.. Inside Dinky we focus on Spirits, Cocktails and bottled drinks but if you are looking to supply drinks on draught we can add to the package one of our pop up bars. These can be set up inside one of our Dens or inside your Venue perhaps.
Can I hire the Dinky Dens without the Bar?
Of course you can! Yes they look great alongside the bar but let's be honest, they can hold their own :-) The tents can be used to house a pop up bar, create a chill out lounge or as accommodation for the night-- what we like to call a Glampover.

This was perfect
Me and my 3yrold son, Freddie, had a camp out to mark the end, or what I thought was going to be the end, of our shielding during lockdown.Sent on 08/07/2020
I'd promised him we could camp out but as a single parent during this time the thought of trying to put up a tent seemed ridiculous.
So this was perfect, lovely people to set everything up which they did in a very safe and professional manner.
Beds and Bedding were provided and I left the choice of tbem up to them. It wad PERFECT!.
Looking forward to working with them again in the future

The attention to detail is lovely
so for my husband's 60th big birthday we should have been in a luxury lodge...as we all know that didn't happen. I'd just sent the cancellation email and sat wondering if there was anything we could do to make his big birthday specialSent on 03/07/2020
Scrolling through FB i scrolled past a picture of a tent. Now camping was something we'd done in our early days and I wasn't really keen on re-visiting it but a scrolled back to look. Dinky dens looked lovely so a message was sent asking if my dates were free. yippee they were. measurements were taken and the garden wasn't quite big enough. Depression set in again. They Messaged again saying they could work with my garden & this secured the deal.
I can't explain what a fantastic weekend we had. Beth rang the night before to arrange times and nothing was too much trouble. As it was a surprise for hubby they waited across the road on delivery morning until he'd left. They erected and dressed the most beautiful bell tent leaving spare lights and batteries for everything.
As a family we enjoyed spending time together away from home whilst still at home (lockdown). We played board games in the dark in the garden and toasted marshmallows over our fire pit. Mobile phones were forgotten and precious memories were definitely made.
I have recommended the Dinky Drinkery to so many people, I hope that their business flourishes. The attention to detail is lovely including lights with happy birthday to hubby and a couple of beers and a card were the perfect finishing touches. His reaction was amazing.
