You can now book a table online in our terrace marquee area or on our (uncovered) front terrace area (we are annexing part of our car park) for the period 12th April to 16th May for up to 6 people. Please be sure to select ‘marquee’ or ‘front terrace’ once you’ve chosen your date & time. If you wish to book for two households that exceeds 6 guests or you wish to book a table for drinks click ‘email query’ or call us. You can move an existing booking from one area to an another subject to availability in that area but if you book outside and it starts raining and we don’t have space in the marquee you will have to make do! We aim to allocate a minimum of two hours for larger dining tables and 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. You can also make reservations for the period 17th May onwards. Select ‘Inside’ and let us know nearer the time if you’d prefer be in the marquee or outside, as an alternative. As soon as our summer floor plan is available we will open up the marquee and garden sections for online bookings. Please note the lawned areas will remain closed until 17th May due to reseeding.

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.
