  • Any changes to the menu must be reflected in the allergy aware version of the menu immediately.
  • Any long term changes to the menu must be resubmitted to us for confirmation, there is no fee for this.

Food Preparation and Service


  • Items handling high priority allergens must be washed (not just wiped) before re use.
