Special dietary requirements

If you have any guests with special dietary requirements, please advise us at the time of making your online booking. A list of special diets can be found within the Dietary Requirements section on the 'Checkout Screen'. Please select the appropriate diet. If the diet required isn't listed, then please select 'Special Dietary Request' from the drop down list and then go back to the previous page - 'Review your order' and type in the dietary requirements into the catering notes box. For multiple dietary requirements, these can be added on the drop down list as required.
