As from Monday the 17th of May 2021 we will be open for drinking and dining both inside and outside. Our large marquee on the garden will remain until mid-June 2021 to provide an extra covered area in addition to our patio and garden tables (uncovered).

Tables inside are limited due to social distancing rules so best to reserve a table if you want to guarantee to be seated inside. Tables inside will be open for bookings from 2 households or groups of up to 6 people from mixed households, ring 01962 771252 to reserve your table.

We will continue to reserve tables for outside (on the patio, the garden or in the marquee) until all social distancing and outside table service rules end, when it will then go back to a first come first served basis for outside tables (no reservations taken).

Thank you for all your continued support and we cannot wait to see you all!!
