Dining in our high street tea room


  • We pride ourselves on our service and that’s what we aim to maintain as best we can.
  • Opening times remain the same: Monday-Saturday, from 0900 with our last orders at 1600.
  • When you arrive, you’ll be asked to queue outside our front door, socially distanced behind the rope barriers. We’ll do our best to get you seated as soon as we can, but please be patient at busy times.
  • The ‘check-in’ procedure:
    • We’ll ask how many households you’re in: to dine inside you’ll need to be in one household or support bubble. To dine outside, the maximum table size is 6.
    • Hand sanitiser is available in all common areas and on each table
    • Face masks are required when not seated, unless you are exempt.
    • Once seated, you’ll be asked to provide one contact per table (name + phone number or email address).  Your details are stored securely online in the same way they would be if you make a table reservation, we’re fully GDPR compliant. This is mandatory for all guests.
    • We’ll point out the NHS Track & Trace QR code for those using the app.
  • Our floor plan has been adapted to allow for social distancing and you’ll notice instructional floor stickers in the walkways and entrance. Please keep your distance in common areas and walkways.
  • Our bathrooms will remain open but queuing isn’t allowed.
  • As you’ll understand, we’re doing everything we can to keep our loyal team safe. This includes providing an additional kitchen area among other precautions. For our team to distance safely, shifts have been staggered, meaning we have less kitchen staff over the lunch period, so your patience at busy times will be greatly appreciated. We carry out daily temperature checks and our team wears face coverings and other relevant PPE.
