 - We can accommodate different table sizes now that there are no restrictions on how many people can mix. However, we are not changing our current seating arrangement (which has many more fixed booths) and so our ability to join tables to accommodate larger groups is restricted. For this reason we are only accepting bookings of up to six people online. Please telephone us to arrange seating for larger groups.

 - We no longer have to take your details to assist 'Track and Trace' - but you can still choose to scan in using the NHS App if you wish.

 - We can accommodate walk ins as well as pre arranged bookings

 - As mask wearing is not legally enforable we are leaving it up to the discretion of customers and staff as to whether they wish to wear a mask. We kindly ask you to respect each other's decision in this instance.
