We have made some big changes outside to allow us to serve drinks, an updated menu and a full take-away service. You can always come and place your order for a take-away and enjoy a drink on our patio while its being prepared, or even change your mind and eat in, we are very flexible!
New areas with online ordering, fully digital menus for the tech savy, and our waitresses will have access to the online ordering should you not be comfortable using this. Food served Lunch Midday to 2.30pm and dinner 6.00pm to 8.30pm
All tables and chairs are well spaced, and we will retain all of the measures we had in place prior to this lockdown. Rest assured as many will know here at The Manger we will go above and beyond any guidelines given by the Government.
We look forward to seeing many old friends and many new customers, in what we believe to be as safe an environment as any.
