We have a dedicated fridge in the restaurant area that provides cakes and biscuits for many different dietary requirements. Please do let our Food Services team know if you have a dietary requirement and we’ll do our best to help you and can advise if particular dishes contain allergens, we always aim to accommodate and will do our best to produce something that will suit.
