The relaxed dining area is open Tuesday to Saturday for both lunch and dinner and selected Sundays for lunch.

We have an extensive a la carte menu which is always available. Our Chefs prepare a daily lunch from which you can choose 2 or 3 courses, there is also a “lighter lunch” option served with Prosecco or English sparkling wine.

Each month there will be at least two themed evenings for you to enjoy.

We offer a balanced choice of excellent house wines, an additional collection of classic wines and a range of fine apéritifs and digestifs.

Our Lounge

Chilled, comfortable and unique.

Our lounge is where you can enjoy a drink and chat whilst deciding on your menu choices. When you are ready to dine we will take you to your table. At the end of your meal you are welcome to take coffee and digestifs there too.

We have a extensive bar including Champagnes, wines and bottled beers and can make wonderful and interesting cocktails.

You are more than welcome to join us for a drink before heading off somewhere else.

The restaurant is a 10 minute walk to Newark’s theatre.
