📍 UPDATE: 11 am Tuesday 4/5/21: we've been outside all morning and will be open as normal tomorrow. We apologise for any inconvenience, but if there's one thing we can't control, it's the British weather!

* * * * *

Due to storm damage from yesterday, we will sadly be closed for the next couple of days. We're hoping to re-open on Thursday but we'll keep you posted. #WatchThisSpace as we're working on a reduced Takeaway Menu for you all. You can't beat a British Bank Holiday when it comes to the weather 😢😡😢😡
