If we’re unable to run an eat-in service due to an adverse weather forecast, we will notify you at least 24 hours in advance and your booking will transfer to a takeaway pizza slot. If you don’t wish to go ahead with your booking, our standard cancellation policy applies (please see terms and conditions).

Due to government regulations, booking numbers are limited to 6 people (excluding children under 5) or 2 households. If you are booking for more than 6 people, please add a note to your booking to confirm number of households your table consists of, and how many children are under five if applicable. If your group doesn’t meet these requirements, please make two or more separate bookings. Please make us aware of any dietary requirements upon booking. 

From 17th May (dependent on regulation changes), we will be open Wednesday – Sunday from 9am – 4:30pm offering brunch and lunch each day with wood-fired sourdough pizzas on Friday and Saturday evenings. Bookings will be for inside tables from this point forward.
