May 2021

We are currently serving food, hot and cold drinks and ice cream on our terrace and from our take away counter only. It is not necessary  to book a table – just turn up, find a table and order from our take away counter.

From Monday 17th May we will be able to serve inside the restaurant. We must ask you to sign in on arrival and wear a face covering whilst not sat at your table. We will take orders at your table but because of the fast nature of our business we will ask for payment when we serve your drinks.

Sadly, we have not been able to host any live music events for a very long time. However, in July and August we hope to have live music every Friday evening. These will not be bookable events but merely entertainment whilst you are enjoying your evening meal. On Friday 16th July we welcome back local hero Zoot Money to help him celebrate his birthday. Tables will be more limited than in past years and in high demand so we recommend booking early (see our live music page for booking details).

Assuming we are able to open again as normal and there are no restrictions beyond the summer we will introduce our Sunday lunchtime jazz from September with the return of the Andy Urquhart Quartet. We will also restart our Friday Series Jazz with some very exciting special guests.

More news to follow soon……

Once again we thank you for your patience and understanding and your continued support. And please keep safe.
