It is not always necessary to book, though advisable at weekends and during school holidays and does of course ensure you have a table reserved in your name as we are unable to predict how many other customers without bookings will arrive on the day.

Neither this website, the email address or the Facebook page are automated and not therefore manned outside of business hours; if you leave a message regarding a booking and don’t hear back fairly quickly, please call 01508 493627 between 10am and 5pm where we will be able to confirm your booking in person.  You are very welcome to leave a telephone message; we will return your call as soon as possible.
