If no one is available to take your call, please leave a message and someone will get back to you.


Please include the following information with any e-mail booking requests:

  • Date and time
  • Choice of menu
  • Number of people in the party
  • Telephone number
  • Any children or special dietary requirements

Please note that we reserve the first half an hour of service for tables having the full tasting menu.

Tuesday- Saturday: The full tasting menu is a 12:00pm start at lunchtime and a 7:00pm start in the evening. The a la carte and daily tasting menu can be booked from 12:30pm or 7:30pm onwards.

Sunday: The full tasting menu is a 12:30pm start. A la carte and daily tasting menu available from 12:45pm onwards.

We cannot accept bookings via email without this information.

Please call ahead to check availability. Weekends can get booked up a fair way ahead (4-5 months), especially during the summer months but we do get cancellations so if you cannot get a definite booking, please put your name down on the waiting list.

It is a little easier Tuesday-Friday, but even midweek bookings currently need to be made one or two months ahead.


We sell gift vouchers, which come with a card and are available in monetary denominations starting at £10. Please call 01227 273370 for more information

Please note that, due to ongoing building work, from Monday 20th February 2017 we will have no conservatory as it is being knocked down. Rebuilding is expected to be completed around mid-March. There will be no seating for drinkers until its completion.

This building work shouldn’t interfere with the restaurant, but we apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption caused.
