We do have some casual seating through the Moonlight Bar that we don’t assign reservations to with the aim to leave space for our “walk in” customers and for those just after a pint. Don’t forget we can serve meals to customers in our Osbourne Bar, where the beer is cold and the seats come easy.

We certainly do! Large groups can be catered for in many ways – as a finger food function, with a buffet, set menu in a private function room or as a la carte dining in our restaurant.
