Cancellation T&C’s

“Pea Porridge” is a small independent 35 cover restaurant
We rely on reservations being honoured and sufficient notice of any changes being given

Cancellation outside of 24hrs of reservation will not incur any cost (5+ guests – 48hrs)

Late cancellation/reduction in numbers within 24hrs of reservation will result in £30 charge per guest

Bookings of 5+ respectfully require 48hrs notice of cancellation/reduction in numbers – cancelling/modifying within 48hrs of reservation will result in £30 per guest

In the event of a no show, late cancellation/reduction in guest numbers (2hrs before the time booked) or changing your mind from dining with us when you are in the restaurant a charge of £50 per guest will apply

St Valentines (14th February) – 48hrs notice is required for cancellations, after this time £50 per guest fee will apply

Regrettably late cancellation charges listed above are non-refundable regardless of circumstance (inclusive of travel, illness or Covid related issues)

Our experience of parties failing to cancel or amend bookings in time, has had the detrimental effect on us and this precaution is now necessary  – thank you for understanding

any correspondence related to this, will not be returned

For the avoidance of any doubt we can only fully accept booking cancellations/modifications made via email: 

Please note that by making a booking you agree to these T&C’s

We look forward to welcoming you
