Due to the restrictions we now have to adhere to we ask that you pre-book a table in the restaurant area. Downstairs and the outside area will be for walk-ins only. All tables will be served by waiting staff. We kindly ask that you do not use the traditional method of ordering at the bar. This is for your safety and ours.

Staying Safe

Boris has permitted pubs to open again – Hooorahhhh! The rules and restrictions we now have to adhere to are extensive to say the least. Your safety – and ours – is paramount. The entire building has been cleaned and spruced, staff will be on hand to wipe and clean during your visit (Not you, the building etc)

Please be patient and kind, this is new to us too. We do have guidelines and in order to open, we must ask that you be aware of the following:


Please bring a mask. Once seated at your table, they can be removed but when moving around the building, using toilets etc. We ask that masks are worn until you return to your table.

Track & Trace

For Track and Trace purposes we will ask for your name and a contact number. This information will be held securely for 21 days only.

Social distancing

We ask that you keep to social distancing rules – no less than a meter and 2 meters where possible. Please follow the floor markings – be aware of Wait Spots in areas such as the toilets. Please use the Hand Sanitiser Stations. Remember – a little goes a long way.


Please feel free to tell us how we are doing. Its going to be different for all venues from now on and we want you to know we are have risk assessments coming out of our ears and are now very knowledgeable regarding the containment of COVID-19, hygiene and safety. Please be assured WE GOT THIS!
