You can now book for inside, all the outside rules apply – only difference is that we will take your order at the table.

Outside tables will be first come, first served and there are still rules in place so please abide by them….

We don’t like imposing them any more than you like to be continually reminded of them – so lets just make life easy for each other!!!

Once seated – stay seated. The only reason you should be out of your seat is to visit the toilet or to arrive or leave!

If you are out of your seat for any of the above reasons please ensure you have a face mask on that covers both your nose and mouth.

It is now a legal requirement for ALL guests to complete track and trace – so please ensure you have the app loaded.

We are cashless outside and ordering will be via our QR codes on each table. Just open your camera and hover over the code – the link will pop up, just click to order.

None of our tables seat more than 6 people so your group can only include up to 6 people.

Not all our tables are under cover so please make sure you bring a brolly and appropriate clothing for the weather!
