Booking a Table

You can book a table online or by phone in any of three zones (click Book A Table, select table size and then select the zone from the drop down): the heated and now semi open Marquee, the (uncovered, unheated) Front Terrace Area or Indoors/the pub. The online system allows for bookings of up to 13 people, larger tables of 14+ plus should be booked over the phone or via the quick contact email form below. Larger tables will be offered a bespoke menu or simplified version of the main menu.

We aim to allocate a minimum of two hours for tables of 4+ persons but feel free to request longer if you think it will be required. Reservations will be held for a maximum of 15 minutes, so please stay in touch if you’re running late. No shows are an increasing problem in the industry and we may not accept future bookings if you fail to show up without warning.

Please note the following:

  • Please do not make online bookings for drinks, just turn up, we have ample space.
  • Dogs are welcome accept in the dining room
  • Due to well publicized staffing issues we are unable to run our two course lunch menu at this time.

I have been meaning to reach out ever since New Years Day to congratulate you on the STUNNING food delivered on New Years Eve. I struggle to find the words that might serve justice to the bone marrow gravy – absolutely the best I’ve ever had. The potatoes were outstanding – what on earth do you do to them to give them that depth of flavour? The beef was cooked to perfection and melted in the mouth. Whilst we snaffled it all up in no time at all, I thought the portions were super-generous.
We gluttonously ordered four portions hoping our two teenage children wouldn’t be able to finish theirs, leaving more for us, but unfortunately, they cleared their plates informing us it was the best meal they’ve ever eaten.
Thank you for making a potentially disastrous NYE really enjoyable – we will definitely be ordering again soon.

I am not prone to gushing emails, but hell, last night’s date night dinner was top drawer. Can’t quite see how you’re making any money on it – and would have happily paid more for delicious beef – really well cooked. Dauphinoise so good my wife wants you guys to make trays of the stuff for the freezer. Your pepper sauce was the crowning glory in my humble opinion. Rocket salad is the Riser tour de force – what can I say – the tomatoes (I can live without!) and the ’shroom – earthy and delicious. Drinkable Malbec, criminally rich pudding – it was all completely delicious, made very easy and exceptional value.
