Menu update

We have made a few changes to our menu for the summer. As always our specials board changes on a near daily basis.

change to kitchen hours

25th April 2022

Due to staff shortages and a dramatic increase in many of our overheads we have reluctantly taken the decision to close the kitchen on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 3rd of May onwards until circumstances change for the better.

We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause; this was not a decision taken lightly.

Mark, Chloe and family.
