11.01.2021: COVID-19 update

Happy new year! As we still have no idea when we will be able to open our doors we have little to update at this moment.

We continue to provide our delivery and takeaway service Tuesday-Sunday from 4pm-9pm. You can also order through our takeout partners Uber Eats, Deliveroo and Just Eat.

Look out for weekly offers across all platforms and our Facebook page.

We’ll update this page whenever we get news about changes to restrictions.

The tier review has concluded that Manchester will remain in Tier 3 for at least the next two week which means we remain closed until 2nd January.

We are devastated to have to cancel all bookings over Christmas including Christmas Day. If you’ve paid a deposit please get in touch by calling 0161 456 6670.

Thank you once again for all your message of support and we will continue to operate our takeaway service over the Christmas period. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and Instagram for all our latest takeaway offers.

We wish you all the best for Christmas and New Year and we hope to return in 2021 with a bang!

With the news this morning that Manchester will be entering the highest level restrictions from 2nd December, it is with deep regret that we are unable to reopen our restaurant as we’d have hoped.

We will continue to provide takeaway and we have lots of exciting plans to develop this further into December.

Unfortunately this also means that we have to cancel a number of planned events including our live music nights on the 5th & 12th December and our Lunch with Santa events on the 12th & 13th December. We apologise to all those people that were looking forward to joining us for these events.

We hope that by the next review date (16th December) we will be in a position as a region to move into a lower tier and hopefully deliver the remaining events we had planned in the lead up to Christmas.

We will keep you posted as soon as we hear anything.Our Christmas Day bookings are still open, as we hope Christmas restrictions will enable us to welcome guests indoors.

01.11.2020: COVID-19 update

We can now confirm that the Government is actioning a second national lockdown which means we will be forced to close our doors once again to customers wishing to dine in. From Thursday 5th November until at least Wednesday 2nd December inclusive we will be operating a takeaway only service.

We will be open as usual from Monday 2nd November – Wednesday 3rd November. Then we will be open for takeaway only from Thursday to Sunday from 5pm-9pm. You can pre-order at anytime for a specific collection/delivery time slot. Don’t forget there’s 20% off for collections. Take a look at our takeaway menu here.

Please note we are unable to offer alcoholic drinks for takeaway.

26.09.2020: COVID-19 update

It is now against the law for us to stay open after 10pm so until further notice the last table bookings will be for no later than 8:30pm.

Face masks are now mandatory for all staff, customers and visitors whilst moving around in the restaurant.

As Stockport has now rejoined the rest of Greater Manchester under local lockdown measures we are unable to accommodate groups from multiple households. Please see the Government guidance here.

It is also a legal requirement to capture customer information as part of the NHS Track and Trace Service. We will be handing out a form on arrival and there will be a QR code on display if you would prefer to use the NHS Covid 19 app to check-in to our venue. This is a mandatory requirement there is no option to opt out of this.

We hope your visit is still an enjoyable one as we will our very best to provide our usual standard of service during these times.

We are now open for takeaway! Thank you so much for your patience and constant messages of support throughout lockdown. There’s a long way to go until we can reopen for diners but we are super happy to be reopening for takeaway orders only for now. You will be able to order for delivery or collection from Thursday through to Sunday from 5pm-9pm. Our takeaway menu is now available to view on our website. Click here.

We will deliver free of charge within a 3 mile radius for orders over £25. Collection orders get 20% off food bill. Pre-order are being taken throughout the week so get in touch to secure your preferred delivery and collection times. Deliveries are also still available through Uber Eats.

21.03.2020: COVID-19 update

If you haven’t already heard, last night was be our last night for a little while. We don’t want to close our doors but it’s time to take a step back to protect you and your families. Your support over the last few years, particularly the last couple of weeks, has been amazing and we can’t thank you enough.

Many of you have been asking about our upcoming events. Unfortunately, the news yesterday evening means that all future events must be cancelled. We had already confirmed the cancellation of our Mother’s Day activities and Soul and Motown night but this now extends to our ABBA Tribute nights and our Easter Peter Rabbit event.

Please give us the opportunity to reassure you that our customers will not be out of pocket. We need a couple of days to manage our closure and work through our existing bookings. We will be proactively contacting anyone who has a booking but, in the meantime, if you feel you need to contact us, you will still be able to do so on the restaurant number 0161 456 6670 or via email

We will be keeping in touch with updates through our social media so don’t go anywhere – keep following us. We will be back as soon as we are given the go ahead to reopen. So, stay healthy, stay safe and stay in touch!

With love

We feel now is the time that we need to make some changes to our operations in order to safeguard our staff and our customers. We’ve already put in place additional cleaning and hygiene procedures to make sure that the environment is as safe as it can be. However, due to escalated measures now introduced by the Government we’ve made the decision to scale back all our planned events until the end of the month.

Just to be clear we are not closing at the moment and will continue to operate our normal opening hours at this stage. We are listening to the official guidance and will make further adjustments in the future if necessary.

We understand that all our customers will be taking different levels of precautions and if you have to cancel bookings or make changes we are not going to be offended – please just let us know if you can.

For now, we continue to welcome all our customers, as long as they are feeling healthy and well. Going forward we are reducing our capacity by nearly 50% to allow extra space between tables. We have cancelled any live music events or unnecessary activities until the end of the month.

Unfortunately, that means our Soul & Motown night on Friday 27th March will have to be postponed until further notice. As it currently stands Mother’s Day (Sunday 22nd March) will continue as planned but we’ve made the decision to cancel all the activities including the character appearance, face painting and magician. If you had previously booked a table for Mother’s Day, can we ask that you contact us as soon as possible if you are now unable to attend.

In the meantime, if we can assist the local community with anything please get in touch. We can only get through this if we stick together and help each other out. We want to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers and staff for their continued support and we will continue to ride this storm and return to normal as soon as it is safe to do so.
