Booking A Table

Please read the information below carefully before booking.

To avoid unnecessary queues and to ensure we have availability for your group, we strongly recommend booking a table in advance. Reservations will last for two hours and will be held for 15 minutes after your scheduled arrival time.

We will accept walk-ins if we have space, but we cannot guarantee availability.

To ensure there is plenty of time for us to clear and sanitise tables, we may ask customers to leave 5-10 minutes before the end of their booking.

Indoors, our tables seat up to four people. Our outdoor Courtyard Bar has small tables available for two people, and picnic benches for up to six people*. For the safety of our staff and customers, we are asking you to abide by the Scottish government’s extended household group policy at all times.

If you have special access requirements or have any questions not answered above, please email

(*Our picnic benches are perfect for four people, or up to six if you’re comfortable rubbing elbows!)
