Christmas Booking Terms & Conditions

The following terms and conditions apply to all Christmas booking types.

For all other booking types, please read our General Booking Terms & Conditions.

Following the recent government guidelines, we have updated our bookings policy. Please read carefully before making a reservation.

We will close at 11pm daily, with last drink orders (includes all drinks) before 10pm.

Inside spaces can be booked for maximum group size of 6 made up of 1 household (larger households can be accommodated, and support bubbles). Guests must all be seated inside.

Outside spaces can be booked for maximum group sizes of 6, made up of multiple households. Tables are a mixture of seating and standing.

Table service is in operation.

A substantial food must be ordered to consume alcohol. Non alcoholic beverages, including, soft and hot drinks are permitted without a substantial meal.

Most of our starters, small plates and sharing boards are sufficient enough to be considered a substantial meal. If you have any queries, our team will be able to advise.

Bookings with a duration of 2+ hours who wish to consume alcohol, will need to order at least one course minimum per person.

Bookings with a duration of up to 2 hours, who wish to consume alcohol, will need to order at least one course minimum per person.

At least one person will be required to check in using Track and Trace.

Please bring a face mask with you which you will need to wear when you are not seated.

Weddings and wakes may be hosted for groups up to 15 people.

Business meetings for groups sizes up to 50% of our normal venue capacity (seated) are able to take place. All guests must be seated.

Social distancing remains in effect. All guests inside must be seated at a table and must not mix with other groups.

General Booking Terms

Please note that we are cashless. We accept all major credit and debit cards as well as Apple Pay, Google Pay & Android Pay.

When reserving a table or area, you will be given a start and end time. If you wish to stay longer than your given time, please get in contact with us (subject to availability).

We work closely with artisanal, bespoke suppliers with a real passion for seasonal and sustainable, great British produce. Availability of certain dishes is subject to seasonal availability. Please check our menus page for the most up to date menu. If there is a certain dish you would like, please check with us for seasonal availability.

Please advise us on any allergies, dietary requirements or special requests in advance of your booking. Our allergens lists are available via our menus page or upon request.

We understand that plans so always go swimmingly. There is no need to get in contact, we will always be happy to hold your table for up to 20 minutes from your booking time (please note that this may be taken off your booking turn time). Unfortunately, after 20 minutes, we cannot guarantee your booking and may need to release your table.


To manage capacities, we reserve the right to pre-authorise your credit or debit card to secure your booking.

What is a pre-authorisation?

A pre-authorisation is a card check. This will check that the card belongs to the booking holder and that there are available funds at the time of booking. The amount may vary depending on the type of booking and the number of covers. This will always be shown to you beforehand. The pre-authorisation is not a charge and no funds are debited from your account.

When will my card be charged?

Normally, your card will not be charged. No money is taken from your card; therefore, the full amount of your bill will be paid at the end of your visit. We will only take payment in the event of a no show or if you cancel your booking within 7 days of your reservation.

Why is the credit card pre-authorised?

Since lockdown, no-shows are unfortunately on the rise. The viability of our industry relies on guests honouring their reservations. Therefore, to manage capacities and ensure there is the most up to date availability for guests, we ask for a pre-authorisation.
