We aim to make our food enjoyable for as many people as possible, so we have a great range of dietary specific dishes.
Our menu descriptions do not list all ingredients. Some dishes may contain alcohol which may not be listed on the menu. Please
advise the team of any dietary requirements before ordering. All of our dishes are prepared in kitchens where nuts and gluten are
present as well as other allergens; therefore we cannot guarantee that any food item is completely free from traces of allergens, due
to the risk of unexpected cross contamination. Whilst we take care to preserve the integrity of our vegetarian & vegan products,
we must advise that these are handled in a multi-kitchen environment. Please be aware the allergen information for our dishes may
change between the time of booking and the date of your visit. We would advise all of our guests contact a member of the team

It’s been difficult year for all of us and we would be delighted to welcome you into our pubs for a long overdue celebration and the opportunity to make some happier memories to end the year.
We know how important it is for you to feel safe and comfortable while you are with us and we take the safety of our guests and our team very seriously. If you’ve visited us in the last couple of months you will have seen all of the PubSafe measures we have in place to look after you while we are still socially distancing and staying alert. Your safety is our priority, while we continue to ensure our pubs feel just as welcoming and cosy as ever.
We are asking all guests, where possible, to book, pay deposits and pre-order online for Christmas to save you having to queue up in the pub. Deposits are required at the time of booking online this year this year and are £5pp (both children and adults) for bookings for our festive, boxing day and celebration menus (£10pp for Christmas Day and NYE). We are also asking for £5pp for any bookings of 7+ guests from 8th -31st December and no booking is confirmed unless the full deposit has been received*. All deposits are of course fully redeemable against your final bill (see ‘refunds & cancellations’ for more information).
This year we have made it easier for you to pre-order your meals online, allowing you to relax on the day and to give our chefs more time to order ingredients and prepare for your meal. You can either order for the whole party or send links to each member to pre-order for themselves. You’ll be sent all the info on how to make your pre-order once you’ve booked, and you will also have the opportunity to tell us about any allergen & dietary needs, special requirements for highchairs and access so we can make your visit as easy as possible. In addition to festive food menus, we have a selection of drinks offers that are only available when pre-ordered. You can add these to your booking via the pre-order website once you have paid your deposit. You can print your booking confirmation and pre-order details out from the website and bring these with you on the day (in case anyone decides they fancy someone else’s meal and tries to swap!)
We have carefully thought through seating plans (with social distancing) and staggered arrival times so we do ask you keep to your chosen time please. We understand that arrival times aren’t always in your control so please give the pub a call if you’re going to be late, so we can help to manage your booking.
We want to make your meal as enjoyable as possible so please call the pub if you need help or have any concerns.
