If you are looking to make a reservation for Boxing Day or New Year’s Day please call or e-mail your preferred restaurant direct as a deposit is required. Menus for those days can be found under the Christmas section on our website.
To make a booking for Afternoon Tea on a Saturday, please call the restaurant direct on 01372 721 309.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to the recent government directive we will be closed until the 3rd December. Bookings can still be made online from the 3rd onwards.
Unfortunately we cannot accept a booking for two adjoining tables to accommodate a larger party.
We have lots of outside tables available and, although we are not able to prebook these, you are more than welcome to sit on any available table for either a meal or just a leisurely drink
Unfortunately we are unable to reserve tables for drinks, this operates on a walk-in basis if space is available at the time
Thank you for your co-operation.
