We have a heated marquee area, for 8 tables, maximum socially distanced seating capacity 48.
Additionally, the smoking area is heated and has maximum 2 tables x 4. Weather dependent, we have further covered garden seating, 6 tables, maximum 36. Front terrace seating has seating for further 24 people, umbrella cover only. If weather is nice over the first weekend (April 17th-18th) there is plenty of space. If it is wet, we are restricted to maximum 90 people, if it is cold and wet, maximum 56 people (if they want to be warmish) . Booking is recommended during the first re-opening period until Mid May earliest.
On Opening Monday,
our new restricted menu is available, to allow for fact that all food is served
outside. Sorry, no Sunday roasts or full menu until we can open inside. The new
menu is available from the web site or on facebook. There are tasty new specialties
including home smoked Sloppy Joe brisket burgers, hot smoked BBQ ribs and hot
smoked pulled brisket fajitas.
