Latest Update December 2020

Although it may have been expected, Hertfordshire has been placed in tier two, meaning we are able to reopen after the November lockdown. We are excited to reopen on Thursday 3rd December, however there are significant restrictions that we must now enforce as part of tier two.

Unfortunately this means that there must be no mixing of households indoors, so all of our indoor reservations will be limited to single households only.
The 'rule of 6' outside, meaning that we can sit up to 6 per table outdoors. We have some heaters outdoors but kindly ask our guests to wrap up warm to ensure the best visit possible.
We can only serve alcohol with a 'substantial meal'.


Please be kind as we are having to enforce rules that we did not make.
We are so thankful to all our customers for the continued support through the roller coaster of 2020.
We will continue to keep you informed and as up to date as we can.
