Sunday Lunchtime Sessions

Every Sunday between 1pm and 4pm we present the finest live jazz in the South courtesy of The Andy Urquhart Quartet with a varying line-up and special guests playing standards and modern jazz classics – the perfect accompaniment to your Sunday roast.

It is not necessary to book a table as we prefer to seat and serve customers as they arrive.

Private Functions

The Jazz Café can cater for parties and events of all types from 20 to 150 guests including private dinners, weddings, birthday parties, barbecues and corporate events.

We offer set party menus or we can liaise with you on your preferred menu options.

Bookings are available for evenings only on the weekend and weekdays throughout the year.
