The popular pods will be transformed into pumpkins for a Halloween-themed experience between October 14 to October 31, and guests can enjoy food served by staff in their heated pod.

The Theatre Street venue launched the pods with a cartoon-style image of orange glowing igloos with witches and bats flying over the historic House.

Director Richard Hughes said: “This is the second year The Assembly House has had igloos on the front lawn for private dining and this year we thought we’d welcome them a little earlier in time for Halloween.

“The pods will be decorated for Halloween although we can assure parents coming at half-term that the illustration is just for fun, they won’t be that terrifying!
