Hello Widnes

We are delighted that we are able to welcome you back inside for the first time this year. Thank you to everyone who visited us during April. It is great to be back.


We are now taking bookings for inside drinking/dining Wednesday to Sunday. We will be keeping a small number of tables free for walk-ins. May sees the return of our homemade Sunday roasts and we will be slowly increasing our menu with some of our much loved classics. During the summer months we aim to fire up the Pizza Oven & BBQ every Wednesday - Saturday and serve up some great Specials at the whim of the Chefs.


Due to the unpredictable weather and to ensure our staff can meet service levels now both indoor and outdoor hospitality can resume, we will continue to operate on a first come, first seated basis for our outdoor area. If you would like to eat outdoors please make sure you wrap up warm and feel free to bring a blanket. If it is windy or raining our outside area might need to close for the day but we will do our best to accommodate you inside if we have the room and you have not pre-booked. Please note our outdoor area closes at 10pm mid week and 11pm prompt at the weekend.

Let the good times roll...

  • Masks are required when using the toilets.
  • Track and trace must be completed.
