During week days we offer a special deli-style menu with amazing lunch deals, as well as our sit-down restaurant menu. In the evenings our restaurant offers full table service, with options such as tapas, salads and our real charcoal barbequed burgers. We also have plenty of outodoor seating in our fabulous beer garden.

We can cater for groups of all sizes, and have a private room for hire.


The kitchen is open from 12:00pm serving up our deli-style lunch menu with pastries, sandwiches, quiches and a range of hot food. All to be enjoyed with a world-class coffee made by our specialist in-house barista.

The North Pole offers a wide range of dining options from our main menu in the evenings and on weekend. A great cosmopolitan menu with a particular focus on Mediterranean barbeque. Great tapas selections, real charcoal BBQ burgers, salads, seafood and much more! The dinner menu is available from 5:00pm - 10:00pm on weekdays, and all day on weekends.

And of course, Sundays means classic British Sunday Roasts, with delicious home-made Yorkshire puddings & all the trimmings.

Coffee is King at The North Pole and one of our dedicated baristas is always on hand to make you the perfect brew. We use the finest Cafe Diemme coffee beans, roasted in Italy and freshly ground on-site.
