Minimum spends do apply and are subject to the time of day or day of week, so please speak to a member of our team to discuss your requirements in more detail.

Our cosy and traditional self-contained private room is ideal for small celebrations, parties and get togethers and can host up to 25 guests for drinks and your choice of buffet food.
