Booking Policy

The need to know…

  • Time of arrival

Your booking duration starts at the time it has been confirmed for, rather than the time of arrival. As demand is so high, we are unable to hold the table for longer than 15 minutes, so we recommend you arrive as promptly as possible

  • What do the different booking types mean? 

During our none peak sessions, bookings are complimentary although we may require a card authorisation to secure it. Your seating will be allocated automatically by the system. These bookings are our ‘Table Reservations’. From 6pm on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday, our Stage View Tables are £10 per person to book, including your live entertainment, and a great view of the band, and our Non-Stage View Tables (which are in the main room with the band but have an obstructed view of the stage), are £5 per person to book. All booking fees are none refundable, but can be moved to another date at our discretion, with more than 24 hours advance notice.

  • Cancellations and no shows

We understand that circumstances may change and you may be unable to attend your booking. That’s not a problem, just let us know in advance and we can move your booking to another date of your choosing (subject to availability). We need more than 24 hours notice to do this. All fees paid are none refundable. If you wish to change your booking, please reply to the original booking confirmation you have received.

  • What if the venue is closed due to Covid regulations?

In instances where we have hoped to be open, but have been forced to close due to Government regulations, all bookings will be contacted, and we will move the bookings to a date once we reopen.

  • Group Sizes

We are currently operating in line with government guidance and can only allow parties of up to 6 guests to book until June 21st. We also ask that all groups of five people or more are mixed male and female. For more information on our Covid secure measures, please visit our Safety Guide.We also ask that you familiarise yourselves with the Government guidelines, and only visit 186 in a compliant manner.

  • Multiple Bookings from the same party

In line with our Group Size policy, we are unable to take multiple bookings from the same group for the same time, and we will contact you in advance to amend or cancel your booking should this happen. We have made changes to our operation to ensure we are Covid-19 safe, and unfortunately multiple groups from the same party interferes with some of these measures.

  • Table Durations

Our online booking system will offer you the durations available for your party dependant on group size with a standard maximum duration of 2 hours. If you know you would like the table for a longer period, or for the full duration of the evening, we may be able to accommodate this by allotting you a minimum spend. Please email for more information or to discuss your requirements

  • Special Requests

We always consider specific customer requests but cannot guarantee we will be able to accommodate them

  • Dress Code

Strictly no shorts.
