We had a relatively early dinner and the place was full. Less than an hour later it was empty so people appeared to be taking advantage of the cheaper early evening menu. The owners seemed to be taking all appropriate Covid precautions but seemed to...More

They have an 'express menu', 2 courses for £9.95 / 3 courses for £12.95, lunchtime & early evening. I believe it starts at 5.15 to 6.30. I think lunchtime is 12noon to 1.30pm. Hope this helps.
