Frequently asked questions
How do I make a Booking?
We accept bookings online through our online booking diary, over the phone or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. On completion of a booking you will receive a confirmation email with lots of useful information about your visit. If you do not receive a confirmation email within 24 hours of making your booking please contact the restaurant directly so we can make sure your booking is in our system.
What is your cancellation policy?

How long does a tasting menu last?
The menu will last around 2 hours, although if you want to enjoy a drink before dinner in

Do you cater for special dietary requirements?
If you advise us in advance of your visit we will always do our best to accomodate your specific dietary requirements. As far as allergies are concerned It is important to know that we do use nuts, gluten and other allergens in our kitchen so while we can ensure your dishes are free of these ingredients it is essential that you know that these ingredients are still used on the premises.
Is there a dress code?
No, we want you to enjoy your evening wearing whatever you like to wear when dining out.
Is there parking available?
Yes, we have a spacious car park so getting parked should be very straightforward.
Do I need to book a taxi beforehand?
would recommend you organise your taxis in advance. We will happily organise a car for you
with one of our recommended taxi companies if you would prefer.
Are children allowed?
Yes we welcome children of all ages, however, we do not have any special menus or smaller
dishes available for them and please be considerate of your fellow diners if deciding to bring
children with you. The Hadrian pub kitchen does have a special children’s menu so that
might be a better option for you if you want to bring children.
Do you allow dogs?
No we do not allow dogs, other than working dogs, in the restaurant. Our pub is very dog friendly though, which might be a better option if you can’t find a dog sitter for the evening!
