We’ll also be open on New Year’s Day from 12.30-4m offering our ‘chill out, anything goes menu’ as well as our daily menu for a particularly relaxed, recuperative service (although not so relaxed that you don’t need to book). As a special festive treat, we’re giving ourselves the day off on Boxing Day, when we’ll be closed all day to play with our new toys (fingers crossed for a train set and some Star Wars Lego this year). -We will also be closed on New Year Eve Night, open as normal lunchtime until 3pm. We will be having an annual close down of the business beginning from the 2nd of January and reopening on the evening of the 9th January 2018
