Reserving Tables

We will be opening for outside service from April 12th subject to government guidelines.

We will be open from noon until 11 pm with last orders at 10:30pm.

If it is forecast to be raining heavily throughout the day, it would not be practical for us to open. We will confirm this the day before on social media and any reservations will be contacted and informed. For all other normal British spring weather we will remain open.

We also hope to have a further 12 tables on the car park from Friday to Sunday until we can open inside.

If for any reason you have to change your plans please call us to let us know and cancel your table, no matter how late in the day it is. “No Shows” have a really big impact on our business, especially at present when we are running with much reduced capacity. Thank you.

I am sure you recognise this will be a bit new and strange for you, for our staff and for everyone working in hospitality so we just request you bear with us as we all get to grips with these new ways of working once again. Thanks for your understanding.
