Dear Guests,

Yet again, it is with regret that we have had to close due to the latest government guidelines. Reservations from the 2nd of December have now had to be cancelled up to the 16th of December, beyond this date is subject to the governments review, therefore as soon as we know when we can open we will be in touch. We are sorry about this inconvenience caused to you and your families at Christmas time but as you can imagine this is devastating for us and the whole of the hospitality industry.

We are now on furlough and have limited access remotely to our emails so unfortunately we are very restricted to what we are able to do, however, please be assured that all reservations where a deposit has been paid, these will be transferred to a future booking. (we will try to respond to any queries etc. as quickly as possible, so please bear with us). For further information please see our T&Cs on our website

With regards to gift vouchers that expire with in this period of quarantine, we are offering an extension of two months from the date that we reopen.

We hope you appreciate these are extremely difficult circumstances and that we are temporarily in hibernation until this disastrous virus passes, and we would welcome your support and understanding at this difficult time and look forward to reopening to a bright and healthy future again soon.

As soon as we have an opening date we will contact you in order to rebook you in to redeem any vouchers or deposits.

Thank you again for all your support in helping us successfully get back up and running, we look forward to seeing you and doing it all over again.

Stay Safe.
