Due to the large number of requests, unfortunately we cannot guarantee specific areas when taking reservations, but we will do our best to accommodate your requests. Your understanding is appreciated.

Food Safety and Allergens

We respectfully ask that food that has not been prepared in our kitchens is not consumed on our premises. For the avoidance of doubt, this includes celebratory cakes so please ask if you would like a cake  made by us or brought in from one of our suppliers . At least 48 hours’ notice is required, so please call or e-mail the restaurant as far in advance as possible. The reasons we have implemented this policy are that we are (i) often unable to find a place to store the cake in a fridge, which is often required for food safety purposes, (ii) the service of food not on the menu can impact our quality of service to the customer who brought the cake and customers on other tables, especially if we were not warned in advance, (iii) in the event of an alleged food poisoning or serious allergic reaction of one of our guests, we would be unable to trace the source in accordance with our Food Safety procedures.
Currently all customers are required to be off the premises by 11.30pm and we would kindly ask you to respect this
