Frequently asked questions
Is there a dress code?
We don't enforce a dress code as we want you to be comfortable, but recommend Smart/Casual as an excuse to get dressed up!
Are children and babies able to visit?
The minimum age to dine here is 6 years old. Children between the ages of 6-14 are welcome, with adults, if seated BEFORE 6.30pm. We do not have high chairs, room for prams or baby changing facilities. If you would like details of child minders, we are happy to direct you to some.
Do you have a Cancellation Policy?
We do have a cancellation policy and our Terms and Conditions can be found under the "Ts&Cs" tab. Please do make sure you read this carefully as it explains our charges should you not show up for your table or not give us enough cancellation notice.
Can we bring our pooch?
We welcome your well behaved pooches but please remember to book a table in a dog friendly area; the conservatory or the outside terrace. Blankets and treats as standard!
What if I have dietary requirements?
You will be asked this question when booking on line and it’s important for us to know what we can do to make your visit safe for you, especially if you have any allergies or intolerances. On arrival please request an up to date allergen matrix to help inform your choices and remember to tell a member of our team. Our current allergen matrix is available to view on our "Menu" tab.
Coeliac: We can cater for coeliac disease to a certain extent as we use separate areas and strict procedures but would advise that we do still have gluten containing products in our kitchen which may make us unsuitable if you have extreme sensitivity.
Vegetarian: We have a good choice of vegetarian dishes available.
Vegan: We are not a vegan restaurant but do have a couple of vegan dishes available and would advise checking our menu before booking to ensure adequate choice for your personal preference.
What size tables do you have?
Our tables can accommodate a maximum of four people. We do have one table that can accommodate five/six but this gets booked up very far in advance so if the reservation diary is showing no availability for your group, this will be why.
Do you have wheelchair access?
As the building is over 300 years old we do not have specific wheelchair access. There are two steps down from the bar area into the restaurant and several steps to the toilets.
Do you have outside seating?
We have a small outside terrace area that is covered and we have the ability to attach sides on drizzly days. There is a heater above each table for individual heating control. This area is usually open June to October.
Should I prebook a taxi?
Taxi's can be notoriously hard to get as the evening passes so we recommend you reserve yours ahead of time.
If you’ve booked online and been given a time by which your table needs to be returned, please book your taxi for then.
If you have a later table, 7pm and onwards you are advised to prebook your taxi on the morning of your reservation., bearing in mind we close at 10pm.
