Special Diets

Our food is freshly cooked so we can modify many menu items to cater for those on special diets such as gluten or dairy free.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of facilities in which to keep them safe until required, we cannot accept cakes brought in by customers. As an alternative we are very happy to provide candles and plates decorated with a celebratory message for the special person(s) - please ask us for a celebration plate. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience or upset this may cause, and thank you for your understanding.

Dog Policy

We are a dog-friendly venue and welcome well-behaved dogs on leads - dogs are also welcome in our guest bedrooms. Please mention when booking if you are bringing a dog, so that an appropriate table or room may be allocated.

If dining in the bar or restaurant with your dog we ask that owners be sensitive to other guests. If a dog needs food or water please take them outside where water bowls are provided.
