We are open with a fast-to-serve menu of freshly prepared and cooked food, bean-to-cup coffees, teas and cold drinks as well as home-made cakes with vegan and gluten-free options.

From Thursday 24th September we are complying with the latest COVID rules.

So please…

  • Wear a face covering in the green area unless seated at a table,
  • Observe the 2m social distance rule when queuing to place an order or when waiting for food,
  • Check-in using one of the Q-codes,
  • There can unfortunately be no more than six people per table and you can't move from group to group like social butterflies,
  • Moving tables and/or benches or chairs would mess things up so please don't,
  • One or the absolute minimum number of people from a group should approach the counter to order,
  • Pay by card if at all possible.
  • Try to play nice.

And thank you.
