To help reduce the risk of a local outbreak of coronavirus, we are required by law to take contact details of our customers who eat and drink in our venues. In line with government guidance, we will keep these details for 21 days. We will only share them with NHS Test and Trace, if asked, in the event of a potential outbreak.

There are many different catering outlets to choose from, each with its own style and character, so whether you prefer to grab a coffee and work on your laptop, or to go somewhere comfy to enjoy a home-cooked meal, there is a great choice.
