From 19th July
Good news to many people I think, including us!
We will be able to open for business without much restrictions from Monday 19th July.
It will be easier for many customers and our staff, no longer having to keep reminding people to keep their social distances.
Although from our side, we can not force customers to wear face covering, we leave it to you to decide which level of protections you would like for yourself. We recommend signing-in using the NHS App for tract and trace when you are here.
Myself and all staff during service will be still wearing face covering and keep a suitable distance where we can.
Tina 's takeaway back to normal!

Discover Our Menu
Enjoy a delicious full course menu or just light meals in a relaxed setting. Our menus provide a balanced choice of Classic British and Oriental dishes, which we aim to change on regular basis, all using ingredients from local suppliers where possible, and prepared on site freshly.
Our Wines are chosen by David himself, tasting each bottle of wine, and made sure they would go nicely with his dishes, and of course reasonably priced too according to the quality of the wines.
