Frequently asked questions
How many people can you cater for?
With current restrictions, from 17th May until 21st June 2021, we can cater for up 30 guests dining outside. During this time your guests must continue to be seated to eat and drink.
Parties of 15 can book for wakes and dine inside or dine outside in parties of 30.
From 22nd June 2021, subject to Government review, we can accommodate larger parties.
Can we book the Garden Room?
Yes. Our Garden Room* is available for private hire for groups of 50+ guests for a non-refundable room hire of £250. This includes exclusive use of the adjoining patio, which overlooks our lovely garden and play area, and is available from 11- 5:00pm and 6:00- 11:00pm.
We can usually seat 25 guests comfortably for a meal inside and up to 100 guests for a party when restrictions allow, however, currently until 21st June 2021 guests must remain seated to eat and drink.
We do have another lovely area that might work for your event. We have a new large heated umbrella in our back garden with seating for 24. If your party is larger we can also allocate you either 2 or 4 of the adjacent dining pods which seat 6 people each. This area can be reserved for you with no hire fee, however we ask for a £100.00 deposit to secure the area which can be used towards your bill on the day.
We are very happy to show you around or pop down and have a look.
