Following the Government’s instruction on the 20th March 2020, we have temporarily closed our doors to protect our guests and our team from the risk of spreading COVID-19.

We are now focusing on the immediate future and how we can continue to make people’s day during the temporary closure.


 We will also ensure that we are well prepared to re-open when it is right to do so!
