update: 24th April 2021


Thank you all so much for your tremendous support during our first week of trading.  We were fully booked all week even though there was a snow flurry on day one and it was pretty cold in the marquee.

But you came in your layers of clothing and bringing blankets.  Thank you. Please keep coming.
The staff did their best to serve you all quickly even though it was a bit hectic at times.

What lovely weather this week, the marquee and garden are warming up nicely.

We will try to continue serving those of you who still want takeaways but will just have to decide on the day according to bookings, as the kitchen is very small to cope with busy dinner service and takeaways.

If you can book your takeaway the day before and collect around 6.30pm we should be able to manage a small number.  On Sundays it will just depend how busy we are, but we will do our best!

The menu is below and our Specials Board in the marquee changes as chef sources fresh local produce.

Our food service times are:

Monday - Saturday
12pm - 2pm and 6.30pm - 8.30pm

12pm - 3pm

Our opening hours will be:

Monday - Saturday
11am - 10pm

11am - 8pm

If you would like to book a table, please call us directly on 01798 813141 during our opening hours. 

All tables in the marquee are available for booking, but tables in the garden are available at first come, first served.

Don't forget to book early for the upcoming Bank Holiday on Monday 3rd May!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
