Card details are required when booking, we do not charge deposits, it’s just an assurance for us that people show up when they reserve tables. If you no-show without giving us at least 24 hours notice there is a no show fee of  £10 per head charged directly to your card.

On table sizes of 6+ we do implement a non-optional service charge of 12.5% 

Our bar is not liable for any damage, breakage, or loss of items left in the premises or brought in by individuals, and therefore will not provide replacements or refunds.
