About us.

While we have child options and smaller meals from other menus please be aware that we do not have baby changing facilities, a small number of high chairs and our dining room and bar are quite small so unsuitable for large prams. 

*Very large parties will not be available Thursday/Friday/Saturday Nights and Sunday early afternoons throughout the year. Large parties will be accepted on these occasions in December for the festive menu. Large parties can be catered for Monday-Friday lunchtimes and Monday-Wednesday evenings but please be aware we have regular customers and the dates you require might already be booked. You will be required to send us a forward order with all relevant allergen information. If you decline wanting to send us a forward order your party will end up waiting on the day for food. We have the right to offer if we so wish, a reduced choice menu for tables bigger than 12. Any further information or discussion can be had on the phone. 01782 392774.
