How do I order food & drinks?
Simple, we use the W8R app so you can order from your table and have everything brought to you.

You can either download the app or scan the QR code on your table. Then browse the food and drinks menu, tap to order. Then pay on the app via card or apple pay.

Please note that we are a food ‘market’ and each vendor operates independently so you will need to do a separate order from each vendor and the bar.

If you don’t want to use the app then you can just order and pay at the bar.

We offer 10% discount for both NHS and RNLI staff but only at the bar. This offer is not available via the app.

To minimise contact between our staff and customers we strongly encourage you to use the W8R app, however we do accept cash as an alternative.
We accept all major credit cards and Apple pay. We do not accept American Express.
