Covid-19 Update & Reopening


These are without question difficult and unprecedented times for us all, however, hopefully the worst is now behind us and we can start to look to the future and try to regain some kind of normality.


Following recent updates from the government we hope to be able to reopen and take reservations from Saturday the 4th July.


However, in order to meet stringent government guidelines regarding social distancing and to ensure both the safety of our customers and our team we will unfortunately be reducing the numbers of tables in the restaurant from 10 to 5.


This will inevitably lead to a reduction in the number of diners that we will be able to accommodate, this is in part due to the nature of the building in which we operate and also to meet both our own and government safety advice.


As you can imagine this will have a dramatic impact on the business, therefore, in order to ensure the continued sustainability of the restaurant and ensure that we are able to return our fantastic team from furlough we have had taken the decision to suspend our a la carte menus for the foreseeable future and offer alternative options in the form of three tasting menus, served over three services each day as follows:


12.30pm  Lunch tasting menu priced at £45

5.30pm    Early evening menu priced at £60

8.30pm    Full tasting menu priced at £75


While many of our smaller suppliers remain closed, we are having to reformulate a number of the dishes within our menus and as a result they will be confirmed in due course.  


Whilst these changes are necessary, we greatly appreciate your patience and support as we seek to ensure the continued sustainability of the business for the immediate future. These changes will enable us to offer you the best food and hospitality we can as well as being able to continue to support both our team and our suppliers; many of whom are small independents and local farmers.  


We want to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your support and we look forward to welcoming you back to The Old Stamp House
