Frequently Asked Questions
You can book a table 12 months in advance, and our reservation phone lines are open from 9am to 7pm, seven days a week. If you need to make a same-day booking outside these hours. Just call 020 3301 0300 and we’ll transfer you directly to the restaurant.
For bookings of four guests or more, we’ll ask for credit or debit card details to secure your reservation. Should your plans change, you can call us to cancel any time up to 24 hours before your booking. After that you may incur a charge of £20 per person.
You can book online for up to 8 guests. We’re always happy to welcome larger groups, in our private dining rooms. Best to get in contact so we can advise you personally on the best options.
If your booking is for 12 guests or more, please contact our private dining team here.
Rather than booking multiple tables for the same group, we offer larger parties a bespoke booking service, with exclusive menus and private rooms.
While we always do our very best to fulfil our guests’ requests, all tables are allocated on arrival and can’t be guaranteed in advance.
We don’t take reservations for drinks, but we’ll do our best to find you a place at the bar whether you’re waiting for your table, or just joining us for post dining cocktails.
We don’t have a waiting list, but you can see live, up-to-date availability on our website.
Our dress code is smart casual.
We welcome children of all ages. When you’re booking your table, please make sure all children in your group (even the babies) are included in your total number of guests.

However, if you’d like to have a celebration cake, we’d be happy to help. Just let us know at least 48 hours before your booking and we’ll talk you through the available options.
You are, of course, more than welcome to bring your own celebration cake with you. Due to health and safety regulations, we won’t be able to serve it to you, but we can present it at your table after your meal and keep it aside for you to take with you when you leave.
If you or a member of your group has an allergy, intolerance or any other special dietary requirements, just let us know when you book, and our team will be ready to accommodate on the day.
