We are operating on a restricted menu (recently expanded) in order to keep our chef team safe.

We will implement a minimum of 1 metre social distancing but please respect other customers and maintain at least 2 metres where you can. 

A one-way flow system will operate on premises, please follow instructions.

We are required to take customer contact details for COVID-19 track and trace. We will ask the purchasing customer for a name and contact telephone number. This data will be kept securely for 21 days. It will not be used for marketing or any other purpose.


We will not serve anyone considered not to be respecting social distancing measures.


We will not serve anyone who appears to be intoxicated or displaying signs of cold/flu/COVID-19  

Please wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. Hand sanitiser points will be available.

Extra cleaning measures are in place.

A full deep clean of the premises has been carried out along with a documented risk assessment prior to opening.

As Government and Public Health England relax restrictions we promise we will review the above.

We wish you all the very best and please stay safe.


We must close by 10pm and provide table service.

Must be from the household or support bubble, unless you're outside and in a group of no more than 6 people.

  • Pubs, bars and restaurants are restricted to table service only and must close at 22:00 BST.

  • Customers should not mix indoors with anyone from outside their own household or support bubble. Outdoors, you can meet in groups of up to six people.

  • At least one member of any group should give their contact details to the venue or check in using the NHS Covid app.

  • Face coverings must be worn, except when seated to eat or drink
