Our maximum table size is 10 and parties of this size are always given our lovely private dining room, the Parlour. The restriction of numbers is partly so other diners don’t suffer from the aural and temporal impact of a large party, but mostly because 10 is the maximum amount of chairs that we can fit round the table in the Parlour (with a maximum of eight in the Trinity). So please don’t plead with us to take a larger party because we just can’t do it!
Lunch: we do not take bookings for our smart pub lunch from Monday to Saturday (except for parties of 6 or more). On Sundays we do take bookings for lunch – indeed, we advise it.
Dinner: bookings are always recommended for dinner, except perhaps midweek in the depths of winter. Certainly Saturday nights get booked up well in advance, as do all high days and holidays. The a la carte menu changes daily (perhaps ‘evolves’ would be a better description) and although dishes are priced individually, anyone on a dinner, bed and breakfast package is offered a free choice – there are no supplements applied.
Dinner, bed and breakfast: at the weekend (i.e. Friday and Saturday nights) dinner, bed and breakfast rate includes a choice of three courses from our normal a la carte and full English breakfast. Midweek one-night dinner, bed and breakfast bookings at standard rate also include a choice of three courses from our normal a la carte and full English breakfast.
Discounted (i.e. offer) packages include a two-course a la carte dinner, with free choice of dishes, and full English breakfast. A third course is charged at a standard £7.50. We do not offer a dismal, cheap-skate table d’hote menus to residents.
