Private dining

Come dine with us

Private dining can be accommodated either in the atmospheric ‘The Library’ room, seating up to 16 guests, or ‘The Orangery’ room seating up to 24 guests, with views of the harbour.

Alex and his team have created a number of additional menu options exclusive to private diners. You may create your own bespoke set menu, opt for one of our fixed-priced, set menus. There's also Alex's ever-popular ‘Bring me Food’ menu, with dishes delivered platter-style to the centre of the table for communal feasting. Private diners may also select from the restaurant’s a la carte menu.

If you still can’t find the menu you want - ask Alex to create you one!
