Menus

Our menus are seasonal, so do change throughout the year. You can find our latest menus here. A discretionary service charge of 12.5% is added to your bill.

Please advise your server of any dietary requirements or allergies.

Certain menus are only available in specific areas of the venue (e.g À La Carte available in the restaurant only). Please speak to a member of our events team for full details.

Age Policy

Under 18’s are allowed in the restaurant anytime, and in the main bar or terrace until 6pm with responsible adults. Please ensure anyone lucky to look under 25 is carrying a valid form of ID. We accept valid passports or UK driving licence.

Booking

We will always try to accommodate seated bookings on as fewer tables as possible, however may need to split your party across multiple tables. In this instance we would then prioritise trying to keep you close to one another, although we may not guarantee this.

Larger bar bookings may be based on standing capacities. Please speak with a member of our events team for further details.

Larger groups may be required to pre-order and/or dine from set menus. Please speak to our events team for details.

Our venues are also available for private hire meaning some spaces may be out of use to the public on your visit.

Wet Weather

Our terrace is partially covered in the event of a light shower only and tables are allocated on a first come first serve basis, please still dress for the weather. Should the weather be poor on the day of your booking, we do our best to move you inside. In the event we are full inside, we try to suggest a sister venue to move you to or you have the option to cancel with no charge if you are on a table with no cover.

Dress Code

Our dress code is smart and elegant. We kindly ask guests not to wear sports, beach and gym-wear including tracksuits, flip flops/sliders or workout trainers. Smart and fashion trainers may be permitted. Caps and hats may be worn on the terrace. Right of admission reserved.
