To our wonderful friends and customers,

With the rapid global development of the coronavirus and the increasing uncertainty surrounding it, we have been made to temporarily close following government guidelines.

As a restaurant, the wellbeing, safety and health of our customers and staff are our number one priority. It is therefore in the best interest of public health to do so and nothing is more important to us than that.

We would like to apologise for those of you with reservations. We trust you understand.

What’s more, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and loyalty - these times are tough but we can get through it together.

Stay safe, look after one another and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Keep an eye out on our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & our website to find out when we’re back!
