We are part of "Super September" where we are extending the Eat Out to Help Out scheme. To ensure you still get three days of 50% off your food bill, from 14th September we have moved it to Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays! Join us then and get 50% off your food and non-alcoholic beverages bill up to the value of £10 per person!
We have also updated our guidelines on dining seating after the First Minister's announcement on 10/09/2020. From Monday 14th Sept, our maximum table size will be 6 people, from 2 households. If you have a table booked which is more than this, then unfortunately we won't be able to seat you as these rules are a legal requirement. This guidance of 6 people includes children, prams, highchairs and those not eating as they take up a space at the table. These rules apply to both indoor and outdoor seating. We remain a 1m plus restuarant so tables will be at least 1m apart at all times.
We also require guests to wear a face covering at all times when not eating or drinking. This includes on enterig and exiting, moving around the room and going to the toilets.
