"The Garden of Empress"

Brand new courtyard outdoor seating area!! 


The all new area sits pleasantly between St Nicholas Cathedral and The Castle.  With bespoke sheltered pods for couples or groups of up to 6, lazy afternoon bistro tables, and comfy garden sofas. 


We've brought nature to the city for an enchanted garden feel, with plenty of outdoor lighting and heat lamps for all-day and all-season enjoyment.

We will be operating in a Covid-safe style to ensure the safety of both staff and customers is maintained.


We have voluntarily reduced our capacity and are aiming to allocate everyone to either a booth, table, or small area.  You wont even have to venture to the bar either as one of our friendly servers will look after you and bring everything to your table.
