Dogs of the well behaved and 'on-the leash' variety are welcome in the bar area.

We do take bookings, but we try to make sure that there is room for customers who are not able to book in advance, so if you have not made a reservation, it's not the end of the world. If there are no tables free we run a waiting list from behind the bar.
Please make bookings by calling or using our online bookings calendar link at the top of the page. Unfortunately we are not able to take bookings via email or facebook.
We don't reserve any of our outside tables so if you enjoy a little alfresco dining these are on a first come first served basis.
Sadly due to our operation we are not able to cater for very large parties or groups.
The main thing to remember is that life revolves around the bar, so that's where to head for drinks, menus and to find out where you're sitting if you've booked.
Please find a table and someone will pop over and take your order when you're ready.
