Special Dietary Requirement

We are able to provide a wide selection of special dietary alternatives.  We aim to keep dishes for vegetarians and other special diets innovative and for this reason will discuss individual requirements with you.

Choice Menus 

We are often asked about offering a choice menu. Of course this is possible, however, there is always an element of wastage which inevitably increases the cost and you should allow an additional
half an hour to your meal time.  If you are able to supply us with an advanced order from a choice of  two amalgamated menus we will charge the price of your most expensive chosen menu plus a 20% surcharge.
