A helping hand when using the booking calendar:

Remember, if your preferred booking date is scored out/grey on the calendar, it is not available for online booking. However, please telephone us or email directly, to double check availability if you wish. Sometimes, reserved customer bookings may change at any moment.

Afternoon tea bookings can only be made, Wednesday to Sunday’s and at least 48 hours in advance. For online bookings, an Afternoon Tea reservation can be made for 2-12 guests. If you have a larger Afternoon Tea group, or children as part of the group, please telephone or email your booking request instead.

Should you have an unusual booking request, it may be easier to contact us directly by telephone or email.

For group reservations, while a group can be booked online, we will contact you afterwards to finalise your actual catering preferences. We have special group menus for you to choose from and can tailor your group needs to your exact requirements.

Any further requests for breakfast or lunch reservations, please email or telephone us directly.
