As we re-open post lockdown, we have had to temporarily limit our menu and opening times. We are serving food all day 7 days a week, last table bookings are at 8.30pm, as per the goverment guide lines we have to close our doors at 10pm, please understand this is something that has been forced upon us and we still aim to provide a top eating and drinking experience.  We run our takeaway service everyday , but only pizza on Friday and Saturdays ( please place pizza and takeaway food orders through our website ) . We have SAMPLE mens for you to take a look at, but please know these are just samples and do change.  As the situation is ever changing we ask,  if you have any questions, to contact us directly for up to date information. Thank you for your patience and please bear with us as we all get used to this new normal and hopefully we will get back to our full service soon.
