Celebrate with us


We would love you to join us for your festive celebrations throughout December. Our brand new Christmas Menu is now available for lunch and dinner reservations from the 1st to the 24th December - please find menu and booking form below.

We welcome bookings by telephone or email, and for Christmas Menu reservations we will require a deposit of £10 per person in order to secure your booking - this can be paid in person or over the telephone. Closer to the time (no later than one week prior to your visit) we will require your pre-order.
