Late Night Opening

We’re now open late until 10pm every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening!  So pop in for some late night shopping, grab a drink, or stay a while and enjoy some delicious food…

Inspired by our Italian Kentish heritage, we’re delighted to introduce the timeless Italian tradition of Aperitivo to Ashford, starting on Thursday 14th October!

Running every Thursday from 5pm – 7pm we’ll be serving complimentary cicchitti, aka nibbles & snacks, when you purchase any glass of wine, draught beer, cider or perfect serve.

It’s the ideal opportunity for an après work get together with colleagues, or simply a chance to welcome in the weekend with friends and family.  With weekly special cocktails added to our extensive bar selection, alongside a rotating edit of cicchetti there will always be something new to try. Plus, with live music on the last Thursday of every month, you’ll really be able to make a night of it!

FREE CORKAGE FRIDAYS are back too, so you can choose any bottle of wine from our extensive selection and enjoy it at your table for no extra charge, when you spend £30 or more on a meal with us.

We’ll also be offering an early evening menu over the three evenings from 5pm – 7pm, where you can enjoy a large plate and a drink for £12 or a large plate, a drink and a dessert for £16.

There’s no need to book or reserve a table, just come along and join the fun…. and remember parking is FREE after 3pm at Elwick Place too.
