Do I need to book a table?

It is worth doing, especially for food, but we will always try to accommodate those dropping in when we can! 

You can book your table by clicking here.

Are you child and dog friendly?

We absolutely are, yes. Children are allowed onsite until 9pm and we love dogs, so bring them in. 

Here is our kids menu:

Do you just serve beer?

Nope, we have a wide range of great drinks including teas and coffees, a fantastic wine list curated by Milton Sandford Wines and a beautiful line up cocktails

We also have draught wine, which you may think means a lower quality product, but in fact many wineries are switching their premium wines to kegs to ensure top quality. Being in a keg helps a wine stay fresh, keep cool and avoid oxidisation. 

Do you host parties?

We can host your party, get in touch to discuss! The perfect spot for smaller gatherings is out "Snug" area, but we can also host larger gatherings. 


Do you do Sunday Roasts?

We do indeed, our roasts are amazing - come try one! 

Here is our Sunday menu: 

Do you have Vegan and Vegetarian options?

We do indeed and we'll be aiming to have more available over time. We welcome your feedback on the options. 

Do you have Gluten Free or Dairy Free options?

We do have Gluten Free and Dairy Free options available. Some of the dishes are naturally gluten or dairy free and others can be adopted. We have GF buns available for all of our burgers (and we've researched the best GF buns you can get, so they don't just fall apart!).

Do you serve breakfast / brunch?

At the moment, we do not serve anything outside of our main menu, kids menu and Sunday menu, and the kitchen starts serving at 12pm. Creating an amazing breakfast/brunch menu is a plan for the future though.

What time do you serve food from?

The kitchen opens at 12pm.

12-9 Monday to Thursday

12-10 Friday Saturday
