Booking & Cancellation Policy

Booking Policy

As we are a small restaurant we are only able to take parties of up to 8 people during Friday & Saturday evenings. Do give us a call if you require space for a larger party and we will try to make arrangements to accommodate you.

Please note that we are only able to hold your table for 20 minutes following the time slot you have booked. If you do not arrive within this time without prior notice your table will be released and we cannot guarantee it will still be available.


Cancellation Policy

The White Spoon is an independent restaurant. Not only do we have a limited number of covers, but our ability to provide the best food and service, to the standard we demand and our customers expect, relies on reservations being honoured by our guests or sufficient notice being given of any changes.

We apologise that cancellation charges have become necessary.

For this reason we take card details to confirm reservations for Friday and Saturday evenings, for groups of 8+ people and all bookings more during race week. A fee of £35.00 per person would be charged to your credit/debit card in the event of less than 24 hours’ notice given of any cancellation or amendments to the number in your party. However, if we are able to resell your table we will happily waive this charge.

Special events will have their own applicable T&Cs, which will be confirmed at time of booking.


Parties of 8

Bookings for tables of 8+ we require either a pre-order or to offer a reduced menu on the night.

Option 1 – Pre-Order

You will be provided with our up to date menu 7 days before your booking. Please ask your party to provide their choices and return on the provided pre-order form, at least 48 hours prior to the morning of your booking.

Option 2 – Reduced menu

You will be provided with our up to date menu 7 days before your booking. We ask you to select 3 choices from the starters, mains and desserts, these choices will make up the reduced menu that your party can choose from on the evening. We ask that we are notified of these choices at least 48 hours prior to the morning of your booking.

Please notify us in advance if any of your guests have any allergies or any other dietary requirements, including vegetarians, when making the reservation so we can ensure that they are fully catered for.

Cancellations or changes in table size, within 24 hours will be charged at (per person);

Wednesday to Saturday lunch – £15.00
Sunday lunch – £25.00
Wednesday to Saturday diner – £35.00

It is with great sadness that Purdey & I are making the following announcement;


After three and half great years running our fantastic restaurant, Sunday 24th March 2019 will be The White Spoon’s last service before we close permanently.


We have had such a fantastic time, creating, growing and running The White Spoon, a dream I have held for a long time. We are hugely proud of all that we have achieved.


Unfortunately, the challenges of running a business, especially in such a demanding industry, whilst trying to maintain a balance with a young family have proven too much of a stretch for us. As a partnership and a family, we have made the very difficult decision to move on and adapt what our lifestyle looks like.


We are thankful to you all our customers who have taken time to dine with us, in particular those of you who have become avid supporters, visiting regularly. Over the years there are those of you who have become less like customers and more like friends, to the whole White Spoon Team. We will miss you dearly.


We’d also like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you, to our staff, past and present who   have shared our passion and shown great commitment. Whenever, the going got tough, we could always rely on certain people to dig deeper than ever asked.


Apologies, but this does mean that we will not be able to honour any bookings past the 25th March.


We hope that over the next week we will see a few of you to say goodbye. We have a number of tables available Thursday to Sunday, if you wish to visit us for one last taste of The White Spoon’s unique offering..… and I’m sure there will be a few bargains on our wine list this week!


All the best,

Chris, Purdey & Annie
