UPDATE - We look forward to seeing you on 3rd December. We are in Tier 2 which means drinks can only be served with a meal, we can only seat tables of 6 or less and everyone must be in the same household or family bubble. 


You will see new measures in place from a one-way system, plastic screens, staff wearing masks (but smiling behind them), sanitiser readily available and floor markings to aid with social distancing.

The government's track & trace system is operating and we will need to take your details on arrival. 

As per new guidelines introduced in September all guests must wear a mask when  not seated at a table. 

We serve food from 12pm - 9.00pm. Drinks can only be served with a meal. 

Christmas Day - Sadly we will not be opening for Christmas Lunch this year, the constantly changing regulations makes it not possible to plan for the occasion with the confidence we will be allowed to operate and honour our guest bookings. Whilst we had hoped to welcome some local faces for drinks and Christmas chat the restriction on alcohol only being served with a meal makes this now not possible. Should our tier change before Christmas Day to Tier 1 we will open 11am - 3pm for Drinks Only. 

Boxing Day - As above - unfortunately we can now not open for drinks as planned. Should our tier change to Tier 1 we will open 12pm - 6pm for drinks only. 

New Years Day - Closed
