Will you be able to cater for my allergy or dietary requirements?

Yes, we cater for allergies and specific dietary requirements.

If you haven’t booked we will do our best to remove and/or substitute ingredients to cater for your requirements. Please call ahead if you have any questions.

Can you cater for children for dinner?

Yes, absolutely. We can offer a simpler version of the menu with two courses for children at £20. Please request this when booking.

Can I bring a buggy or pram at brunch?

We do accommodate buggies and prams where possible but space is limited. Our storage space is small so you may need to keep the buggy at the table and if you can fold it up it would be highly appreciated.

If you want to bring a buggy or pram, please notify us when booking and for walk ins we recommend contacting us by phone or email before coming to dine. We will always do our very best to accommodate you. Babes-in-arms are of course welcome. We politely request that parents keep children at the table at all times.

Can I request my favourite table?

We do try our best to accommodate table requests at the time of booking but please be aware that this is not always possible and that we cannot absolutely guarantee that you will get your choice of specific table.

Why do I need to give you my credit card details?

Last minute cancellations or no-shows are financially detrimental to our business.  You will need to enter your card details through the secure ResDiary portal when you book a table to dine with us for any evening. Full terms & conditions are available when you book.

For cancellations more than 48 hours in advance there will be no charge. If you cancel with less than 48 hours notice we reserve the right to charge you £20 per person. If you cancel on the day or simply do not show up, we reserve the right to charge you the full price for three courses – £32.50. If you are ill and cannot make your reservation please call us and we can move your reservation to another date in the future and we will waive the late cancellation charge.
