Now that the summer season has passed and there is a distinct chill in the air, it seems like the right time to change back to an earlier opening of 9.00AM. For the time being we will not be open in the evening and will close at 4.00PM.
If you are wrapped up warm, we still have outside seating. For the time being, we have not re-opened indoor seating.

We appreciate that many customers are nervous venturing out, so here is a short video to show what measures we have in place to keep things as safe as possible and how to 'check-in' if you plan to eat at one of our outdoor tables.
