Covid 19 - Updated 8th April 2021


We will be reopening on Tuesday 18th May. Please read the following information carefully.


We will start taking bookings from Monday 19th April. Please call 01503 262397 Mon-Fri between 11am-2pm to book.

We strongly recommend you book in advance, as we have limited tables. We will be offering two sittings, 5.45pm or 8.15pm. All 5.45pm bookings must leave the table by 8pm (this gives us time to clean and prepare the restaurant for the next sitting). Maximum people per booking is 6 people. Please call 01503 262397 to book.

Sunday Roast

Unfortunately, we will not be serving Sunday carveries until 2022. But we will be doing a Sunday lunch time roast from the kitchen. We will be offering two sittings, 12pm or 1.45pm. All 12pm bookings must leave the table by 1.30pm (this gives us time to clean and prepare the restaurant for the next sitting). Maximum people per booking is 6 people. Please call 01503 262397 to book.


We only have a limited number of tables, all of which will be at least 1m apart. There will be screens erected between some of the tables. Staff will have their temperature checked on arrival. PPE will be available for all staff members. There will be one member of staff specifically tasked with disinfecting surfaces such as bathrooms, door handles, handrails and card payment machines etc. There will be hand sanitisers on every table and one by the entrance and exit points. We have two doors; one will be specifically for entering (Middle Market St) and one for exiting (Higher Market St).


Please come to the middle market street entrance and wait outside to be seated. A member of staff will then come out and show you to your table. Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes before your booking, this gives us enough time to make sure the restaurant is as safe as possible.


The restaurant will close at 10.45pm, last drinks orders will be taken at 10.15pm.

Face masks

Face masks are now compulsory unless your sat at a table.

We look forward to welcoming you back and thank you for your patience and understanding.
