update: 17th May 2021


Thanks for all your support.

It feels like we've been waiting a lifetime - but from today, 17th May, finally indoor drinking and dining is back on the cards; we look forward to welcoming you.

It is still a requirement that every person checks in on entry through the marquee, either with the NHS track and trace app or by signing in the available book.

Please wear a mask on entry to the marquee and building and when walking about and respect others space.

It is important for everyone's safety that we take things cautiously.

It is still table service only for drinks and food, so no Bar service yet.

Our staff will serve you as quickly as possible but please bear with us as the staff have extra procedures to perform to ensure that all employees and customers are kept safe; including extra hand washing and cleaning as per Government guidelines.

Our food service times are:

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

12pm - 3pm

Our opening hours are:

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.
