Hello All,
Due to circumstances beyond our control, we will be running a reduced Japanese food menu (plus specials!), without any raw fish dishes or sushi from 7th January 2020 until Spring 2020, when we plan to rebrand the restaurant into a globally inspired small plates restaurant with the new name of "Terra".

This has come about due to our increased knowledge in growing vegetables, foraging, using seasonal & local ingredients, and basically using the resources of our planet in a more responsible way, so we have decided to change our food offering to reflect this.

We are also trying to drastically reduce our carbon footprint by using less imported items and the non-recyclable packaging they come in.

Our menu will therefore be evolving constantly to reflect the seasons (and our creativity).

We hope that you will continue to support us during this time and in our new venture.

Group Bookings (5+ Guests)

Should you be looking to reserve a table of 5 or more guests you must contact the Restaurant directly. We do require a £10.00 per person deposit to guarantee the table - this can later be deducted from your final bill or refunded to the card provided. In addition to this, we also require tables of 5 or more to dine 'Omakase' style - this literally translates to 'trust us' during which we tailor make a sharing menu for your table dependant on dietary requirements, likes and dislikes. We do provide menus on the night and if there are any items that you would like we can include these within your Omakase.

Children Policy

In order not to inconvenience the majority of our customers, children under the age of 12 are not allowed in the restaurant after 7pm. If you have children in your party we recommend you book tables for our lunch service or at 5pm.
