Open daily 9-4 with tables available inside and out!…

Our latest change to help the planet

Our crusade to become more sustainable continues.

(Aside: we HATE the impact of Covid-19 restrictions on our use of disposable packaging!! This is against everything we believe in, but we have to keep our team safe and it’s what we have to do at present. But this is temporary.)


You may have noticed that most of our plastic bottled soft drinks are…
